Readers beware. Luckily, Rowling has prepped loyal readers for the finish of her series by doling out increasingly dark and dangerous tales of magic and mystery, shot by indicates of with lessons about honor and contempt, love and loss, and right and wrong. The brilliant, breathtaking conclusion to J. K. Rowling's spellbinding series is not for the faint of heart--such revelations, battles, and betrayals await in Harry Potter along with all the Deathly Hallows that no fan will make it towards the end unscathed. But we would be remiss if we did not offer one small suggestion before you embark on your final adventure with Harry--bring plenty of tissues. Fear not, you will find no spoilers in our review--to tell the plot would ruin the journey, and Harry Potter and also the Deathly Hallows is an odyssey the likes of which Rowling's fans have not but seen, and are not likely to forget.
The heart of Book 7 is really a hero's mission--not just in Harry's quest for the Horcruxes, but in his journey from boy to man--and Harry faces much more danger than that found in all six books combined, from the direct threat of the Death Eaters and you-know-who, towards the subtle perils of losing faith in himself. Attentive readers would do properly to remember Dumbledore's warning about making the choice between"what is appropriate and what is easy,"and know that Rowling applies the same difficult principle to the conclusion of her series. While fans will find the answers to hotly speculated concerns about Dumbledore, Snape, and you-know-who, it's a testament to Rowling's skill as a storyteller that even possibly the most astute and careful reader will be taken by surprise.
A spectacular finish to a phenomenal series, Harry Potter at the identical time as the Deathly Hallows can be a bittersweet read for fans. --Daphne Durham The journey is hard, filled with events both tragic and triumphant, the battlefield littered with the bodies from the dearest and despised, but the final chapter is as brilliant and blinding as a phoenix's flame, and fans and skeptics alike will emerge from the confines in the story with full but heavy hearts, giddy and grateful for the experience.

A Few Words from Mary Grand Pré"When I illustrate a cover or a book, I draw upon what the author tells me; that's how I see my responsibility as an illustrator. Every single story is packed complete of wealthy visual descriptions with the atmosphere, the mood, the setting, and all the different creatures and people. J. K. Rowling is very descriptive in her writing--she provides an illustrator a lot to operate with. She tends to make it easy for me."Check out more Harry Potter art from illustrator Mary Grand Pré.
