I say to you all, once again--in the light of
Lord Voldemortâ€™s return, we are only as strong
as we are united, as weak as we are divided.
Lord Voldemortâ€™s gift for spreading discord and
enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing
an equally strong bond of friendship and trust.
So spoke Albus Dumbledore at the end of Harry Potterâ€™s
fourth year at Hogwarts. But as Harry enters his fifth year
at wizard school, it seems those bonds have never been more
sorely tested. Lord Voldemortâ€™s rise has opened a rift in
the wizarding world between those who believe the truth
about his return, and those who prefer to believe itâ€™s all
madness and lies--just more trouble from Harry Potter.
Add to this a host of other worries for Harryâ€¦
â€˘ A Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher with a
personality like poisoned honey
â€˘ A venomous, disgruntled house-elf
â€˘ Ron as keeper of the Gryffindor Quidditch team
â€˘ And of course, what every student dreads: end-of-term
Ordinary Wizarding Level exams
â€¦and youâ€™d know what Harry faces during the day. But at
night itâ€™s even worse, because then he dreams of a single
door in a silent corridor. And this door is somehow more
terrifying than every other nightmare combined.
In the richest installment yet of J. K. Rowlingâ€™s seven-
part story, Harry Potter confronts the unreliability of the
very government of the magical world, and the impotence of
the authorities at Hogwarts.
Despite this (or perhaps because of it) Harry finds depth
and strength in his friends, beyond what even he knew;
boundless loyalty and unbearable sacrifice.
Though thick runs the plot (as well as the spine), readers
will race through these pages, and leave Hogwarts, like
Harry, wishing only for the next train back.
