This was a very interesting read. It reads like a discovery channel special. It talks about all the magic surrounding items discussed in the Harry Potter series. It was very interesting and delves into that unseeable world of magic. It struck me how the history of the creature plays into a lot of modern schools. Alchemy to chemistry for example. There are a number of texts that I will be spending some time learning and understanding. If you love Harry Potter or want to know more about the actual history of magic. Jump in and enjoy.
