Harry has been burdened with a dark, dangerous and seemingly impossible task: that of locating and destroying Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes. Never has Harry felt so alone, or faced a future so full of shadows. But Harry must somehow find within himself the strength to complete the task he has been given. He must leave the warmth, safety and companionship of The Burrow and follow without fear or hesitation the inexorable path laid out for him . .

Review: It's impossible to finish Deathly Hallows without mixed emotions of sadness & satisfaction. There is an urge on turning the final page to start all over, not because you want more but because now you know, everything that came before will be in a different light and have a fresh new meaning. JK Rowling really works the reader and shows off her talents in deathly Hollows, managing the tension and throttling the pace up and down, with so many plots and endings to tell, Rowling has cramed im as much as humanly possible and allows you to say goodbye to many characters. This is the saddest of the Harry Potter books, but also the funniest.
