哈利·波特与死亡圣器(Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)简介:
Throughout the six previous novels in the Harry Potter series, the main character, Harry Potter, has struggled with the difficulties that come with growing up and the added challenge of being a famous wizard. When Harry was a baby, Voldemort, the most powerful evil wizard in living memory, killed Harry's parents but mysteriously vanished after trying to kill Harry. This results in Harry's immediate fame, and his being placed in the care of his muggle, or non-magical, relatives Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon.

Harry enters the wizarding world at the age of 11, enrolling in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He makes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, and is confronted by Lord Voldemort trying to regain power. After returning to the school after summer break, several attacks on students take place at Hogwarts after the legendary "Chamber of Secrets" is opened. Harry ends the attacks by killing a basilisk and defeating another attempt by Lord Voldemort to return to full strength. The following year, Harry learns that he has been targeted by escaped murderer Sirius Black. Despite stringent security measures at Hogwarts, Harry is confronted by Black at the end of his third year of schooling and Harry learns that Black was framed and is actually Harry's godfather. Harry's fourth year of school sees him entered in a dangerous magical competition called the Triwizard tournament. At the conclusion of the tournament, Harry witnesses the return of Lord Voldemort to full strength. When the next school year begins, the Ministry of Magic appoints Dolores Umbridge as the new High Inquisitor of Hogwarts. After forming an underground student group in opposition to Umbridge, Harry and several of his friends face off against Voldemort's Death Eaters, or followers, and narrowly defeat them. In Harry's sixth year of school, he learns that Voldemort has been using horcruxes to become immortal. Horcruxes are fragments of the soul that are placed within an object so that when the body dies, a part of the soul remains and the person can come back to life.[8] However, the destruction of the creator's body leaves the wizard or witch in a state of half-life, without corporeal form.[9] When returning from a mission to discover a horcrux, Professor Dumbledore, the headmaster of the school and Harry's mentor, is killed by Snape, a teacher at the school with whom Harry is consistently at odds with and who Harry has suspected of being a Death Eater (a follower of Voldermort). At the conclusion of the book, Harry pledges not to return to school the following year and to search for horcruxes instead.

Following Dumbledore's death, Voldemort has completed his ascension to power and gains control of the Ministry of Magic. Harry, Ron, and Hermione drop out of school so that they can find and destroy Voldemort's remaining three horcruxes. They are forced to isolate themselves to ensure the safety of their family and friends. All that they know about the horcruxes are that two are likely objects that belonged to the Hogwarts founders Rowena Ravenclaw and Helga Hufflepuff, and that the third is Voldemort's snake familiar. The locations of the two founders' objects are unknown, and the snake is presumed to be with Voldemort himself. As they search for the horcruxes, the trio learn details about Dumbledore's past, as well as Snape's true motives.

The trio recovers the first of Voldemort's horcruxes, a locket, by infiltrating the Ministry of Magic. They recover the Sword of Godric Gryffindor; it is one of a few objects that can be used to destroy horcruxes, and they use it to destroy the locket. In their travels the trio come across a strange symbol, which an eccentric wizard named Xenophilius Lovegood tells them represents the mythical Deathly Hallows. The Hallows are revealed to be three sacred objects: the Resurrection Stone, a stone with the power to bring others back to life; the Elder Wand, an unbeatable wand; and an infallible Invisibility Cloak. Harry learns that Voldemort is after the Elder Wand, but the trio decides that discovering Voldemort's horcruxes is more important than procuring the wand for themselves. They break into a vault at the wizarding bank Gringotts to recover another horcrux, the cup of Helga Hufflepuff. Harry learns that another horcrux is hidden in Hogwarts, and Harry, Ron, and Hermione enter the school. They find the horcrux, the Diadem of Ravenclaw, and destroy both.

The book culminates in the Battle of Hogwarts. Harry, Ron, and Hermione, in conjunction with students and members of the wizarding world opposed to the rise of Voldemort, defend Hogwarts from Voldemort, his Death Eaters, and various magical creatures. Several major characters are killed in the first wave of the battle. In an effort to save the survivors, Harry surrenders himself to Voldemort, who attacks Harry with the Killing Curse, sending Harry to a sort of limbo between life and death. There, Harry meets Dumbledore who explains that when Voldemort first attacked Harry as a baby, he inadvertently stored a piece of his soul in Harry's body, making Harry a horcrux. Dumbledore further states that because Voldemort used Harry's blood to regain his full strength, Harry is protected from any harm that Voldemort could commit, meaning that Harry can return to his body despite being hit by the Killing Curse. Harry then returns to his body, the battle resumes, and with the last horcrux destroyed, Harry is able to defeat Voldemort. An epilogue describes the lives of the surviving characters and implies that peace has returned to the wizarding world.  还有四天,哈利就要迎来自己十七岁的生日,成为一名真正的魔法师。然而,他不得不提前离开女贞路4号,永远离开这个他曾经生活过十六年的地方。
