Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows is the seventh and final book in J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter series. Voldemort is continuing to accumulate power and it is up to Harry, Ron, and Hermoine to find the remaining Horcruxes to defeat him once and for all. When the Death Eaters descend upon Hogwarts, it leads to a battle that will affect the future of the wizarding world forever.

On Harry’s seventeenth birthday he’s touched and amused to be given a book from Ron, of all people, on how to charm witches, and a watch by Mr. and Mrs. Weasley.

After breakfast, Ginny pulls him into her room and gives him her present, which is the longest, most passionate kiss Harry has ever had. They are interrupted much too soon by Ron and Hermione, and Ron is mad because Harry was supposed to have stopped seeing Ginny at the end of the school year, for her protection.

During his birthday dinner Harry is shocked when Rufus Scrimgeour shows up and wants to talk with him, Ron, and Hermione. When he talks with them privately he tells them that Dumbledore left them some things in his will and he is here to deliver them.

Dumbledore leaves Harry Godric Gryffindor's legendary sword, which Scrimegour has left back in Hogwarts insisting that it wasn't Dumbledore's to give away in the first place. He also left Harry a Golden Snitch, which, when touched to his lips, reveals the line " I open at the close ", of which Harry can’t make heads or tails of. Ron is left a Deluminator (which was shown in the beginning of the first HP movie), which steals light from any nearby source. Lastly, he leaves Hermione a book of children’s stories entitled " The Tales of Beedle the Bard ." None of them can figure out why Dumbledore would have left them these things, but they certainly don’t tell the Minister that. Scrimgeour is already highly suspicious of the three of them and is convinced they are up to something.
