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.

The Deathly Hallows is a children’s tale, but Harry has never heard it. Hermione takes out the book that Dumbledore left her in his will and reads the entire tale to them. The story is about three brothers who meet Death on their road late one night. They are each awarded a prize from Death since they escaped him earlier by not drowning in a dangerous river. The first brother asks for a wand that will always win duels and allow the owner to escape death. Without question, Death gives it to him. The second brother asks for something that will be able to recall others from death. Death picks up a stone and tells the second brother that it now has the power to bring back the dead. The third brother asks for something that will enable him to hide from death. Death gives the third brother his Invisibility Cloak.

Xeno tells the three of them that the three objects, the wand, the stone, and the cloak, make up the Deathly Hallows. Whomever possesses all three will be a master of death. Xeno also tells them that the Invisibility Cloak is not a common one, but one that will hide the wearer eternally and not fade with time like most other cloaks. The wand, called the Elder Wand, is also very special but no one knows where it could possibly be.

The three wander upstairs when Xeno leaves the room and they manage to find Luna’s room. Something is wrong, however. The room hasn’t been touched in months, and it doesn’t look like Luna is home at all. When they confront Xeno about it, he tells them that the Ministry has taken Luna and Xeno has already sent an owl to warn the Ministry that Harry is at his house. All hewants, he says, is to have his daughter back.

They barely escape the Death Eaters that show up, and Hermione saves them again by Apparating them out of there.
