In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, J. K. Rowling offers up equal parts danger and delight--and any quantity of dragons, house-elves, and death-defying challenges. Now 14, her orphan hero has only two far more weeks with his Muggle relatives before returning to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Happily, the prospect of attending the season's premier sporting event, the Quidditch World Cup, is enough to develop Harry momentarily forget that Lord Voldemort and his sinister familiars--the Death Eaters--are out for murder. Yet 1 night a vision harrowing enough to make his lightning-bolt-shaped scar burn has Harry on edge and contacting his godfather-in-hiding, Sirius Black.

Readers, we will cast a giant invisibility cloak over any more plot and reveal only that You-Know-Who is very much after Harry and that this year there will likely be no Quidditch matches between Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin. Could Harry be a single of numerous lucky contenders? Instead, Hogwarts will vie with two other magicians' schools, the stylish Beauxbatons and also the icy Durmstrang, in a Triwizard Tournament. Those chosen to compete will undergo three supreme tests.

But Quidditch buffs need not go into mourning: we get our share of this great game at the World Cup."Bulgaria is supported by the beautiful veela, who instantly enchant everyone--including Ireland's supporters--over to their side."As ever, Rowling magicks up the details that make her world so vivid, and so comic. Until, that is, thousands of tiny cheerleaders engage in some pyrotechnics of their own:"The leprechauns had risen into the air again, and this time, they formed a giant hand, which was making a quite rude sign indeed at the veela across the field. And the sports paraphernalia on offer consists of rosettes"squealing the names of the players"as well as"tiny models of Firebolts that actually flew, and collectible figures of famous players, which strolled across the palm of your hand, preening themselves."Needless to say, the two teams are decidedly different, down to their mascots. Several spectators' tents, for instance, are entirely unquotidian. Attempting to go incognito as Muggles, 100,000 witches and wizards converge on a"nice deserted moor. One is a minipalace, full with live peacocks; another has 3 floors and multiple turrets.

Long before her fourth installment appeared, Rowling warned that it could be darker, and it's true that each exhilaration is equaled by a moment that has us fearing for Harry's life, the book's emotions running as deep as its dangers. (Ages 9 and older) --Kerry Fried Along the way, though, she conjures up such new characters as Alastor"Mad-Eye"Moody, a Dark Wizard catcher who may or might not be getting paranoid in his old age, and Rita Skeeter, who beetles about Hogwarts in search of stories. (This Daily Prophet scoop artist has a Quick-Quotes Quill that turns even the most innocent assertion into tabloid innuendo. This fan is ready to wager that the author herself is component veela--her pen her wand, her commitment to her globe total.) And at her bedazzling close, Rowling leaves several plot strands open, awaiting book 5.
