Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, a fiction book, was written by J.K. Rowling. This is the final book in a seven part series, which is set in the present and takes place in the United Kingdom. However, most scenes take place at the school of Hogwarts.
The entire Harry Potter book series follows a young boy named Harry Potter who learns he is a wizard and attends Hogwarts, a school of witchcraft and wizardry. While at the school, he finds out that he may be connected to a very powerful, very evil wizard. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry thinks he finds a way to defeat this dark lord by destroying several objects that could possibly have a piece of the wizard’s soul trapped inside, called horcruxes.
I personally enjoyed the entire Harry Potter series, but the final book in the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, most definitely completes the series better than any other series I have read to this day.
