    Santa Olivia by Jacqueline Carey (whitewavedarling)
    whitewavedarling: Santa Olivia is admittedly built for a more mature audience, but the themes, character types, and situations in the Harry Potter series and in Carey's work make me believe a reader who enjoys one will likely enjoy the other. Santa Olivia, though, is not a traditional fantasy, but more in the lines of speculative fiction, so that fantasy-only readers who enjoy Harry Potter for primarily the inclusion of magic may not enjoy Carey's work. I'm recommending it with this Harry Potter book in particular since, for me, this was the book when the series took a leap toward becoming more adult. Santa Olivia is also probably the beginning of a forthcoming series.… (more)

Magnificent as always. ( )

The previous year ended with the servant of Voldemort in search for his master. This year shows many machinations of what appear to be foreboding events. Starting with a dream and Harry’s scar hurting, then a foreboding Dark Mark at the Quidditch World Cup. Voldemort’s supporters who are called Death Eaters had started a ruckus. But that was only the beginning of the plan to revive Voldemort.

This year, Hogwarts is holding a Triwizard tournament which has not been held in roughly a century in the hope to gain cooperation between different wizarding schools and societies. The tournament was meant to have a single champion from each school compete at three different tasks. But, Harry Potter was chosen as a fourth champion, and the tournament does allow anyone chosen to resign. It was not Harry Potter who had put his name into the Goblet of Fire which decided who the champions would be. Given that the previous tournaments had champions die, it was assumed that someone had put Harry Potters’ name into the Goblet so that he may die in the tournament. Harry Potter must overcome the trials of the tournament, and learn why his name was entered.

There is a lot packed in this book. I don't feel like the characters really developed much in this one but they definitely overcame a lot of challenges. There was more history of Voldemort and the death eaters. Excited to see what is building and how the main characters will defeat it ( )

Best Harry Potter book so far. Loose threads from previous books start weaving in a powerful narrative, tragic and choral. I did not expect it, even after the constant improvement across the series. ( )

Always my favorite book of the series, I love the tournament and the twists at the end. ( )

Book description
Harry Potter is midway through his training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that's supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for hundreds of years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. But unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal - even by wizarding standards.

And in his case, different can be deadly.
