The Book of Harbringer is an unfinished fantasy novel by Sean Patrick Hannifin. It is about a young banished prince who returns to the kingdom he was banished from to oust an evil king. The "book" the title refers to is Harbringer's journal, which plays an important part in the plot.

History

Hannifin began planning the novel in October 2008, expanding on an idea he originally had for a short story. He began writing the novel on November 1, 2008 for NaNoWriMo 2008, but was only able to write about 34,000 words in that month, thus losing NaNoWriMo.

Hannifin abandoned the story in 2009, shortly after the wordcount surpassed 50,000.
