Harry Potter and the Cursed Child: Where to pre-order the new book?

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the script from the new J.K. Rowling-penned stage play, goes on sale on Sunday July 31.

That means you don’t have long left to pre-order a copy and receive it on or close to the release date, which also happens to be Harry Potter’s birthday.

The book, which comes in two parts is The Official Script Book of the Original West End Production, and is being dubbed the eighth Harry Potter book, nine years after the last.

It’s a Special Rehearsal Addition of the script, with the Definitive Edition replacing it in early 2017.

Amazon is offering free delivery for Prime Members, with the hardcover cost at just £10, which is half of the £20 asking price.

Waterstones is selling the title for the same price, enabling customers to pick up from a local store.

WH Smith will also enable you to grab it for just a tenner, with in-store pick up also available.

Fans seeking a digital fix can pre-order from Apple iBooks, Google Play Books and the Kindle Store.

In the US, Amazon is offering a similar discount for ‘The Official Script Book of the Original West End Production’ at $17.99, down from the retail price of $29.99. The Kindle Edition, meanwhile is $14.99.

The stage production will officially premiere in London’s West End on Saturday night. The story will focus on adult Harry and his youngest son’s ‘struggle with the family legacy.’

“It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children,” the synopsis reads

“While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.”
