Eugh - the part in the morgue really made me shudder. Poor Harry, reminding him of the great hall on that day. That can't be easy for him.

I've told you a few times but I have to tell you again, your characterisation of Harry is way too good. Everything he does is just the Harry we know so well from the books. His little temper tantrum at the books was very well placed!

I absolutely love Luna. I love that she just says things like they are and makes absolute sense over things people get so confused over. 'They think they are' So it that the deal with this book? It's nothing to do with Lord Voldemort but everyone thinks it is and so everybody jumps on board? Well the pure blood fanatics anyway. If it is I seriously have to praise you on how amazingly thought out this story is. Lady Tenabra is a fantastic villain. The way she speaks to the 'army' she's made is quite unnnerving.

Okay, so I've left all the parts about Percy until now with very good reason. He's still kind of confusing the heck out of me but I've had this crazy thought that might kind of answer some of the questions I've been asking myself. I still don't fully get why he's being like he's being with Audrey and he's actually annoying me a bit with it. I don't like this version of Percy.

This crazy thought though, I don't know whether to tell you in case it's the silliest thing you've ever read in one of your reviews. I kind of feel like I might know who Lady Tenabra is but I'm not sure...

You see in my orginial review I was having my little rant about Percy as above and I was also going to mention the fact I really don't like Dynt after the last two chapters. But then I kind of noticed that Arabela Dynt is an anagram of Lady Tenabra. Kind of like the whole Tom Marvolo Riddle, I am Lord Voldemort set up? And she works for the ministry which is convinient and files were missing from a folder she sits down the hall from. Percy also keeps having 'lunches' with her and then acting strange with his wife. Am I going crazy and reading too much into this? If I am, the anagram thing is a really mean trick Dan!

I'm dying to read more but it's really late here so I'm going to have to call it a night but I can't wait to read more. I'm absolutely hooked!

Author's Response: Hi, Lauren! Sorry it took me so long to get caught up. My wife has an understandable problem with me spending too much time online over Mother's Day weekend. ;)

Since Harry is the main character of the story, I worked harder on his characterization than just about anything else. So it really pleases me to know that you thought he sounded right. He's a tough one to figure out at times. Very stubborn about the guilt and abuse that he heaps upon himself.

Ah, Luna! One of my biggest regrets about CoB is that I really wish I could have found more opportunities to work her into the story. So I relished the few chances I did find and tried to make them count. She's a little scary to write, to be honest. Getting her to sound right is like abstract art or being in love: you know it when you see it, but it's impossible to explain it to another person.

Percy, Percy, Percy... All I can tell you is don't be *too* harsh on him just yet. He has a lot going on in his head, definitely more than meets the eye. But I'm not surprised that he's annoying you at the moment. That's not by accident.

Hmmnnn... You *might* be onto something with Arabela. You'll just have to wait and see. :p

Whee! You have no idea how much fun it is to read all of your reactions and thoughts. I've been lucky enough to have a few readers share their thoughts and ideas as they move through the story and it's a treat every time. Thanks so much!
