For seven weeks, I will be reviewing the Harry Potter series! I am so excited to review these classics of our time. If you have not yet read them, I highly encourage you to jump into this beloved series of friendship, adventure, and (of course) magic.
Now considered “of age” in the wizarding world, Harry must take extra precautions as he leaves his home on Privet Drive for the last time. The protective spells that kept him safe during his childhood are no longer effective. Many of his friends help him get to a secure place, knowing full well that Voldemort and his Death Eaters are lying in wait – but the journey is not without loss.
It is up to Harry, with the help of his best friends Ron and Hermione, to track down the rest of the Horcruxes if there is any hope of defeating Voldemort. Along the way, they learn the truth to the children’s story of the Deathly Hallows – the Elder Wand, the Resurrection Stone, and the Cloak of Invisibility. It is said that the one who possesses all three artifacts becomes the Master of Death.
Voldemort and his Death Eaters attack Hogwarts, and a great wizarding battle commences. Harry races against time to track down the final Horcruxes before it’s too late. In the end, he does whatever it takes to defeat Voldemort and save Hogwarts – even if it means not saving himself.
This is my favorite book of the entire series! I loved seeing how Rowling tied everything together so masterfully.
