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.

Hermione quickly does a spell on Harry to make his face swell up so it looks like he’s been stung by bees. The Snatchers don’t recognize him at first, but they quickly realize that he is Harry Potter. They decide to take him to Voldemort personally, and they bring them all to Malfoy Mansion.

Once inside, Narcissa Malfoy makes Draco look closely at Harry to verify that it’s really him. Draco doesn’t want to look at Harry, and mumbles that it could be him, but he’s not sure.

Bellatrix Lestrange sends them all downstairs to the cellar prison while she keeps Hermione up with her. After the rest of them are locked up, they can hear Hermione being tortured for information. It is gut wrenching to hear her screams, and they can’t figure out a way to help her. They discover that they are in the dungeon with Luna and Ollivander, the wand-maker, as well as Dean Thomas and a goblin named Griphook.

In desperation Harry grabs his pouch and out falls a tiny shard of mirror, from which he thinks he can see Dumbledore’s eye looking at him. He screams for help and suddenly the eye is gone. Suddenly, Dobby is in the dungeon with them and Harry can’t believe it. Dobby takes all the prisoners to Bill and Fleur’s seaside cottage, and while he’s gone, Harry and Ron are left in the dungeon alone. Suddenly, Wormtail opens the door and they manage to escape. Wormtail is strangled to death by his own silver hand when he fails to kill Harry. They rescue Hermione and Dobby shows up just in time to take them to Bill and Fleur’s cottage.

When they get there they are all heartbroken to see that Dobby was stabbed by Bellatrix's knife just as he was helping them Apparate out. He dies in Harry’s arms.
