In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the epic tale of Harry Potter, Harry and Lord Voldemort each prepare for their ultimate encounter. Voldemort takes control of the Ministry of Magic, installs Severus Snape as headmaster at Hogwarts, and sends his Death Eaters across the country to wreak havoc and find Harry. Meanwhile, Harry, Ron, and Hermione embark on a desperate quest the length and breadth of Britain, trying to locate and destroy Voldemort's four remaining Horcruxes, the magical objects in which he has hidden parts of his broken soul. They visit the Burrow, Grimmauld Place, the Ministry, Godric's Hollow, Malfoy Manor, Diagon Alley...But every time they solve one mystery, three more evolve—and not just about Voldemort, but about Dumbledore, and Harry's own past, and three mysterious objects called the Deathly Hallows. The Hallows are literally things out of a children's tale, which, if real, promise to make their possessor the "Master of Death;" and they ensnare Harry with their tantalizing claim of invulnerability. It is only after a nigh-unbearable loss that he is brought back to his true purpose, and the trio returns to Hogwarts for the final breathtaking battle between the forces of good and evil. They fight the Death Eaters alongside members of the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore's Army, the Weasley clan, and the full array of Hogwarts teachers and students. Yet everything turns upon the moment the entire series has been building up to, the same meeting with which our story began: the moment when Harry and Voldemort face each other at last.

Book 7. Last

Jan 12, 2019

This book tore me up inside. What a great ending. J.K. Rowling's imagination is beyond my wildest dreams. To get all these pieces lined up throughout the entire series and have everything fit together like a grand puzzle is fantastic. This is the culmination of years of emotions - just a brilliant ending. I still tear up a little at the end, because it was the end of an era. The fandom still goes strong but tears well up nonetheless.

For my second time through reading this I was able to stretch it out over 5 days instead of like the first time when I finished it in 36 hours. I only really have one gripe about JK's ending to her epic series. But we wont discuss that here.

BEST BOOK EVER!!!!!!!!!'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aug 23, 2018

The most amazing book in the whole History!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aug 22, 2018

All round, an decent read. Pretty unpredictable as the main characters don't really seem what to do next like where to find the next horcrux (if you have no idea what that is you have to read the other books). Has some hidden WW2 resistance references such as secret radio stations and resistance groups. Has a bit of a thin plot but all round pretty good. 4 stars

The seventh and final book in the Harry Potter series is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. It would have been Harry, Ron, and Hermione’s last year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but they aren’t going back. They have to complete the task that Dumbledore left for Harry at the end of his sixth year; find Voldemort’s horcruxes and destroy them. It is the only way they will be able to defeat the dark lord, as Harry knows neither him nor Voldemort can live while the other survives. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is thrilling, captivating, dark, and inspiring as all the loose ends of the series are tied together. Just when you think you have the story figured out, J.K. Rowling is still able to surprise you in this novel. This book is definitely a mature read, but I would highly recommend reading it if you enjoyed the other Harry Potter novels. If you liked Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, then you will definitely love Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I would have to rate this novel five out of five stars.

At a time when the forces of evil seem to be gaining the upper hand, Harry comes of age in the wizarding world, and must take on and defeat Voldemort--or be killed himself. It is the epic conclusion of the whole harry Potter series which includes both Deathly Hallows movies' plot in this book.

Harry, Ron and Hermione have quit Hogwarts and are on the run to do just what they promised Dumbledore - defeat all of Voldemort's horcruxes. But it is not as easy as it looks. Along the way, Harry also overcomes many more mysteries in need of desperate answers - who was this mysterious thief? Was Dumbledore a traitor? Where are the Deathly Hallows?

With all the challenges, and questions ahead of them, Harry, Ron and Hermione strive so hard to find all the horcruxes - only to face a terrible fate back at Hogwarts.
