Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Written by J.K. Rowling
Two Most Important Characters:
Harry Potter – The hero and main protagonist of the tale, he is now 17 and much different, maybe even unrecognizable (Had it not been for his Lighting Bolt scar) from the boy he was 7 years ago. Then he was just an average person with no knowledge of his magical abilities, his caregivers (his horrific Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon) had him locked in a cupboard underneath their staircase. He has now left Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, one year short of graduation, in pursue of the horcruxes that keep the evil Voldemort alive.
Voldemort – The most evil and treacherous wizard alive. He is the main antagonist of the series and to most folks in the world he is so feared that people won’t even utter his name, instead refer to him as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. He once was undefeatable, or so he thought, as a prophecy told him of a boy who would destroy him, he went in search of the boy. The boy happened to be Harry Potter. When he went to the house that Harry lived, where he uses the Avada Kavarda curse (which kills instantly) on both of the boys parents, when he goes to Harry’s room he finds nothing more than an infant. He attempts the same curse on him as well, but it backfires. That was 17 years ago…
Description of Setting:
Unlike the previous books in the series, this story doesn’t take place at Hogwarts for the majority of the time. Instead, it is a search that spans many cities (mostly fictional) all around Europe.
In the final iteration of the Harry Potter franchise, Harry along with his best-friends Ron and Hermione, must make a final stand against evil Lord Voldemort and his Death Eaters, for the fate of the world rests in their hands. All is up to them. Will they find the horcruxes that hold pieces of Voldemort soul? Will they be able to stay out of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named’s grasp long enough to destroy said horcruxes? Will Voldemort win the final fight and rule the Wizarding World once again? Will Harry survive? All is answered in this epic tale of Good versus Evil.
