Secrets and suspicion are spreading through the wizarding world, and Hogwarts itself is not safe. Harry is convinced that Malfoy bears the Dark Mark: there is a Death Eater amongst them. Harry will need powerful magic and true friends as he explores Voldemort's darkest secrets, and Dumbledore prepares him to face his destiny...

Heartbreaking and Wonderful
As always, this book made me cry at the end. It’s such a powerful moment, and it’s really the turning point where Harry really becomes an adult. He finally realises he’s the only one who is going to turn things around, and no one can act for him. He must choose to be brave and do what is right, even when it’s hard and the last thing he wants to do. I just want to hug him at the end.
I knew wizards had to go at some point but whyyyyyyy why Dumbly-Dor? This made me so sad. But I do recommend this book :) :(
Because Harry Potter needs more hype
I don’t feel the need to be eloquent: this is the best Harry Potter book. Between the lessons taught by Dumbledore, Harry’s emotional maturing and the balance of plot, humor and melodrama, this book captures everything promised by the series as it developed alongside the teenage protagonist.
