It's a story of Harry Potter's youngest son gone teen angst. As I've read the first several chapters, I thought It will only be a drama between the two but It got me excited after reading the sudden turn of events with messing up with the Time-Turner. Time-turner is a magical device that allows its user to time travel. If you can remember, Hermione first used it in book 3 The Prisoner of Azkaban.
I enjoy the Wizarding battle in this book. They chant a lot of magical battle spell more than what we've seen in the previous books. Also, some funny humor scenes I can compare to TV sitcoms.
You can read the flow of story very smoothly as in you can finish it within a day. Note, It's a theatrical script and not a novelization. Your reading pace will be fast.
Lastly, I speculate they will write more of Harry Potter related stories because of the Wizarding World seal (see below).

I really wish they will.
My rating for this book: 5.0 / 5.0
