Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the seventh and final novel of the Harry Potter series, written by British author J. K. Rowling. The book was released on 21 July 2007 by Bloomsbury Publishing in the United Kingdom, in the United States by Scholastic, and in Canada by Raincoast Books, ending the series that began in 1997 with the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. The novel chronicles the events directly following Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2005), and the final confrontation between the wizards Harry Potter and Lord Voldemort. Rowling finished writing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in January 2007. Before its release, Bloomsbury reportedly spent 10 million to keep the book's contents safe before its release date. American publisher Arthur Levine refused any copies of the novel to be released in advance for press review, although two reviews were submitted early. Shortly before release, photos of all 759 pages of the U.S. edition were leaked and transcribed, leading Scholastic to look for the source that had leaked it. Released globally in 93 countries, Deathly Hallows broke sales records as the fastest-selling book ever, a record it still held in 2012.[3] It sold 15 million copies in the first 24 hours following its release, including more than 11 million in the U.S. and UK alone. The previous record, 9 million in its first day, had been held by Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The novel has also been translated into over 120 languages."

The End of Harry Potter

ISBN: 1429985208
Release Date: 2007-03-20
Genre: Literary Criticism

The publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final Harry Potter novel, is probably the most eagerly anticipated event in the history of publishing. Even the smallest hints from author J. K. Rowling about what may happen to Harry and his friends have been major news stories. In The End of Harry Potter?, David Langford—Potter fan and award-winning writer—delves into the many mysteries which remain unsolved. Is Albus Dumbledore really dead? Whose side is Severus Snape really on? What are the remaining horcruxes, where He Who Shall Not Be Named has stashed his soul? Does Harry bear a part of the Dark Lord's soul in his scar, and is this why he understands Parseltongue? J. K. Rowling is the only person who knows the answers to these questions. But in this highly entertaining book, Langford uses his deep knowledge of the six published Harry Potter novels to explore these and other mysteries, and to present a selection of possible outcomes. Only the publication of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will lay these questions to rest, but in the meantime, fans of the series will find David Langford's book entertaining and thought-provoking, and a perfect way to refresh their memory of the first six books in readiness for the last. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Sometimes extremely funny, sometimes wildly scary,and always totally absorbing, this remarkable story -- brilliantly imagined and beautifully written -- marks the return of the Newbery Award winner Susan Cooper to the field of novels for young readers.

If you enjoy Tartan Noir with a double shot of humour, join young Annie James as she begins her new job, working as a summer intern with Jack Davidson. However, she quickly finds out that this temporary gig is completely different from all the mind-numbing, zero-hours contracts she has endured since leaving college. Having at last found a job where she is encouraged to use her brain, she takes on the considerable challenge of trying to drag her new employer, an old-school private detective and confirmed technophobe, screaming and kicking into the 21st century. Jack instructs Annie in the dark arts required to be an effective private eye and she, in turn, uses her youthful enthusiasm and IT skills to try to help his failing business. Then an old case from Jack’s past life, when he was a detective sergeant with Glasgow CID, returns to haunt him when the arsonist and killer Thomas Burke is unexpectedly released from prison. Swearing vengeance against the cop who put him away for eighteen years, he draws the two new partners into a deadly battle of wits where the psychopath always seems to be one step ahead.
