Yet another great book with new scenarios, memorable characters, and more wicked plot twists! Harry Potter books are getting better, seriously. Mr. Arthur Weasley goes to meet the Dursleys and it's so hilarious! Anyway, this starts during the Quidditch tournament, specifically, the final. Death Eaters appear in the scene and everything is chaos. Harry and his friends are separated from the group and strange things happens. In the end, they make it back safe to Ron's house. In Hogwarts, a tournament is commenced, between the three leading schools of the Wizarding world.

Durmstrang, Beauxbatons Academy, and Hogwarts. It is a competition testing the skills of three selected students from each school (four, actually, because Hogwarts had two nominees). The professor for the Defense Against the Dark Arts is an re-known Auror, Alaster Moody (Mad-Eye Moody). The challenges starts and Harry wins each one out of sheer luck and some help from his always supportive friends.

The last challenge was a real wicked twist, tremendously unexpected. When Cedric Diggory and Harry where in the maze, both of them are transported to Lord Voldemort's lair, where Cedric is killed. Harry battled for his life against the Death Eaters. Lord Voldemort had Harry special, protective blood within him, so Harry is not immune to his lethal and deadly powers anymore. In a decisive battle at the end, Lord Voldemort is about to kill Harry when from his wand, his mother and father erupt from Voldemort's wand and try to protect him.

Harry, dragging Cedric's body, quickly exits the scene and reappears in the tournament. By the end of the book, the terrible news were spread: You-Know-Who was back, and creating an army of his own.

This book was a real eye opener, it cast the different characters in a light I wouldn't have imagined possible. Hermione was really pretty at the Yule Ball, I almost wished Harry had noticed more, ha ha! Dumbledore continues to be one of my all-time favourite characters of the book. He is so wise, meticulous, and caring. If we had more leaders like him, the world wouldn't be in the mess it's now.
