In Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts, he embarks on a special project with Dumbledore, to learn more about the origins of Voldemort and what he has done to obtain his powers.

Of the later books in the series, I think that this is the strongest. The plot moves well, there are surprises and revelations and big emotional moments (both positive and negative), and as always, the characters shine. It's a good lead-up to the final book in the series. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
To Mackenzie,
my beautiful daughter,
I dedicate
her ink-and-paper twin.
First words
It was nearing midnight and the Prime Minister was sitting alone in his office, reading a long memo that was slipping through his brain without leaving the slightest trace of meaning behind.
Quotations
People are craving to know more about you, dear boy, craving! If you were prepared to grant me a few interviews, say in four- or five-hour sessions, why, we could have the book finished within months. And all with very little effort on your part, I assure you -- ask Sanguini here if it isn't quite -- ^Sanguini, stay here!^" ...***

Book description
The wizarding world has finally woken up to Voldemort’s return, and his Death Eaters are on the rampage, causing chaos, confusion and death. Harry Potter, who is now surrounded by more rumours than ever before, returns to Hogwarts for his sixth-year of magical education – but the school is no longer the haven it used to be, and spies who have been hidden for years will soon show their true colours. As suspicions escalate and workloads increase, Albus Dumbledore invites Harry to join him in piecing together the tale of Voldemort’s parentage and upbringing – a tale that will reveal his darkest secret yet.
