Author’s Summary: The Triwizard Tournament ends with tragedy. One champion is left dead, two more maimed, and one missing and presumed dead. And now Harry Potter finds himself on a strange island with a strange woman and no idea just how to get back home to Hogwarts.
My Thoughts: Ithaca is some of the weirdest shit I’ve ever read, and I fucking love it. The writing is fantastic, Harry is written really well, and the mystery is oh so intriguing. The biggest thing that keeps me interested in this story is that I have literally no idea what’s going on in it. I recognize some locations and names from Greek myths, and The Odyssey in particular, but that still doesn’t give me much to go on. Is this some kind of Harry Potter/The Odyssey crossover? Did Harry get sent back into Ancient Greek times? What does life even mean anymore? I know the answers to none of these questions, but what I do know is that I can’t wait to find out. Give this one a go! If it doesn’t capture your imagination, then…that’s fine, I guess, but I disagree with that take.
