Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

At exactly one minute past midnight, bookstores across the country, and, indeed, across the world, will fling their doors open to sell the highly anticipated Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This is the seventh and final installment in the wildly popular Harry Potter series, and one in which the author, J.K. Rowling, has promised that "Harry’s story comes to a definite end."

Over 12 million copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have been printed. Fans eagerly await for answers of questions that have been building since the 1997 release of the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. We all want to know - will Harry defeat Voldemort? And can Harry survive?

Perhaps an even bigger question is whether this is truly the end for Harry Potter. Have we really seen the last of Harry, Hermoine, Ron, and all of our other Hogwarts favorites? J.K. Rowling hesitates to close the door on this world of wizardry. “Because the world is so big, there would be room to do other stuff,” Rowling says carefully. “I am not planning to do that, but I’m not going to say I’m never going to do it.”

And although some may not find this answer quite satisfactory, it does give us faithful readers a tiny glimmer of hope that we may be witness to Harry's world once more.
