Book Summary
Harry Potter leaves Privet Drive for the last time. But as he gets into the sidecar of Hagrid's bike and they go to the skies, he knows that Lord Voldemort and the Death Eaters will not be far away.

The protective charm that has kept him safe so far is broken. But the Dark Lord is instilling fear in everything he loves. And he knows he can't keep hiding.

To stop Voldemort, Harry knows that he must find the remaining Horcruxes and destroy them.

You will have to face your enemy in a final battle.

Book Review
It ends too expository and convenient, but the story is compelling, and its new setup is a nice break from the formula.
