The message has sparked curiosity and raised numerous questions among Harry Potter fans.

The mysterious novel is assumed to be Rowling’s next crime fiction novel under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. However, an anagram she posted Monday afternoon – “Cry, foe! Run amok! Fa awry! My wand won’t tolerate this nonsense,” – let many think that the new book can be a new wizards’ story, possibly related to the ‘Harry Potter’ series.
