Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Rowling

JK Rowling

It should be Harry's seventh year at Hogwarts, but thinks don't always go to plan. Instead Harry, Ron and Hermionie are off on a quest Dumbledore left them to destroy Voldemort once and for all. But are the pieces of Voldemort's soul the only thing they are meant to be searching for? After a year of searching can Harry comes to find the closure he needs, and steps in to take his spot in Wizarding History.

Deathly Hallows is definitely not a children's book. Mortality and virtue are written on every page. From the very beginning something is amiss - Harry won't be heading back to Hogwarts, and the house on Privet drive will no longer be his home.  Emotions run high in this book with death following Harry, Ron and Hermione wherever they go; taking loved pets, protectors and friends and always threatening themselves.

Rowling does a fantastic job of creating tension in this epic finale. Even when the characters them self don't know what is going to happen or where they need to be their feelings for each other and the stress they are under creates a wonderful reading experience that will have you struggling to put this chapter down.
If you liked the rest of the series you're probably going to like Deathly Hallows. It's a great final installment, but you might want to keep some tissues near by.

This is my favorite book in the series. It's hard to choose of course, but I definitely think it wins!
