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.

While they wait for Kreacher’s return, Death Eaters have started taking up watch outside Grimmauld Place. Lupin shows up to give them news of what happened after the wedding, and they’re all really glad to see someone from the Order. Lupin doesn’t bring much good news, however. The Death Eaters now have the full might ofthe Ministry behind them now that the Minister is dead, and rumors are being spread that Harry is wanted for questioning in Dumbledore’s death.

He also tells them that the Ministry, which is now really headed by Voldemort, is rounding up Muggle-borns and making them register. If they can’t prove they have at least one close wizard relative, they’re being punished for “stealing” magic.

Lupin also asks them if he can go with them on their mission. Harry wants to know why he’d volunteer to go away when he and Tonks just got married, and Lupin tells them that she’s also expecting a baby. When Harry finds this out, he’s outraged that Lupin would ditch his wife and kid to go off with them. They get into a huge argument about it, and Lupin tells them that he regretsmarrying Tonks and regrets having a kid because now they’re all going to be outcasts because he’s a werewolf.

Lupin leaves suddenly when Harry calls him a coward, and then Harry feels really guilty for laying into him like that. Still, he reasons, if it makes Lupin go back to Tonks, it will be worth it.

As if the night couldn’t get any more exciting, Kreacher returns with Mundungus. Harry is amused to find that now Kreacher is entirely on their side, and wastes no time trying to beat up Mundungus. Harry finds out from Mundungus that he sold the locket to none other than Dolores Umbridge.
