Book Haven

Book Question Time!

pile of assorted novel books

There is nothing better than Book Question time. In this post, we thought we’d have a little bit of fun and use Google Search Console and Ezoic, to find book questions.

The questions will be random subjects, depending on what we can find. Also, this post will accommodate for questions that we cannot fit into a single post.

1. Was James Potter A Seeker In The Harry Potter Books?

We’ve covered this question already in a post we did a while ago, but we wanted to go over it again for those who haven’t seen the original article.

James Potter in the Harry Potter books was referenced to be a Chaser, according to JK Rowling herself. The only time James is said to be a seeker (like Harry) is in the Philosopher’s Stone/Sorcerer’s Stone movie.

So, no, James Potter was not a seeker, like his son.

2. What Kind Of Dragon Is Toothless In The Books?

Everyone who is a How to Train Your Dragon movie fan will know Toothless to be a Night Fury. However, in Cressida Cowell’s books, in which the film franchise is loosely based of, the Night Fury species is not a thing.

Toothless is a Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus in the books, though it is originally believed he was a Common or Garden Dragon. There was also a fictional name made up in-universe for him; a Toothless Daydream.

3. Are The Star Wars Books Canon?

It depends on which Star Wars books you’re talking about. If you’re talking about the books that were released during and after the release of the original trilogy (A New Hope, Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) and anything predating 2014, then no. All of those books are deemed as Legends. Anything released as of 2014 is considered canon.

However, when it comes to where the books sit in the timeline usually depends on whether there is screen media as that takes top billing over books, comics and video games. Sometimes, events that happen in comics and books can be changed if events happen on screen. One example of this includes the involvement of the Bad Batch in the battle that Caleb Dume (the future Kanan Jarrus) sees his master killed during Order 66. This event happens slightly differently in the Kanan comics.

Another example is the appearance of Ahsoka Tano’s lightsabers in the Ahsoka book. When the novel was initially published, her lightsabers were green. However, when we see them as blue in The Clone Wars Season 7. Also, the appearance of the Inquisitor that Ahsoka kills to get the lightsaber crystals while on the run from the Empire changes between the Ahsoka book and the Tales of the Jedi shorts.

4. What Star Wars Books Are Canon?

Any Star Wars book that is published after the Disney-Lucasfilm buyout in 2014 is considered canon.

5. What Is The First Harry Potter Book Released?

The first Harry Potter book to be released was Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone on 26 June 1997.

6. Is There A James Potter Book Series?

There is a James Potter book series, but it is not canon. It is a series of fanfiction stories by G. Norman Lippert. Also, the James Potter series focuses on James Sirius Potter, Harry and Ginny’s eldest son, rather than his grandfather, James Potter I.

7. What Is The Name Of The Third Harry Potter Book?

The third Harry Potter book is called Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

8. Is The Night King In The Game of Thrones Books?

We didn’t know the answer to this and had to look it up. The answer is no; the Night King is not in the Game of Thrones books. He was an original creation for the Game of Thrones television and has no book counterpart.

9. Are There Old Republic Books In The New Canon Star Wars?

Finally, we reach the last question.

There are no specific Old Republic-centred books per se, but there are books within the new canon that mention the Old Republic. These include:

  • Shield of the Jedi – a High Republic short story
  • Guardians of the Whillis
  • Aftermath: Life Debt
