Pottermore announced Thursday that Game of Thrones star Natalie Dormer is joining the Wizarding World to narrate the new Audible audiobook Harry Potter: A History of Magic.

“Get ready to embark on an audio journey like no other,” Pottermore tweeted.

Dormer will share tales of mythical beings and legends that were introduced in the books and featured in JK Rowling’s online universe Pottermore.

The audiobook will include knowledge on handy charms, European runes, Chinese oracle bones, crystal balls, broomsticks, giants and werewolves.

It will also host interviews with illustrators of the novels, narrators of the original Harry Potter audiobooks (Jim Dale and Stephen Fry) and dive into Rowling’s own personal archives.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic will be available for purchase October 4, the day an exhibit of the same name opens at the New-York Historical Society Museum and Library. The exhibition debuted last year in London’s British Library.

The audiobook is currently available for preorder in the US and the UK.
