Lord Voldemort is alive and the wizard community is in an uproar. The Death Eaters evil deeds are spreading beyond the wizard world and threatening the muggle world. Dementors are everywhere draining all light, hope, and happiness. All the while plots abound (Is Harry really "The Chosen One'?), danger is around every corner (has Draco become a Death Eater?), and Harry, Ron, and Hermione still have to decide on what course to take for their N.E.W.T's (Nasty Exhausting Wizarding Tests). Ah, to be a 16 year old wizard. Author JK Rowling has once again weaved a riveting adventure that's suspenseful, gripping, and imaginative. A darker book in an increasngly dark series (there's another death that effects Harry deeply), but Potter fans will undoubtedly read it from cover to cover, over and over again, while waiting for the grand finale. I know I will. :) Other suggested reading: "The Chronicles of Narnia" by CS Lewis and "GAAK" by Darryl Hughes. Both wonderful all age adventures.
