The fourth Harry Potter series provides a carefully-plotted, extraordinarily well-written adventure story packed with danger, intrigue and, best of all, a touch of maturity.

Rowling’s steady hands works to craft the magical world we all know and love, whilst at the same time throwing in darker, more adult elements which make the characters, if anything, more enchanting. Be prepared for bitter arguments, fights, romance and even death, in what is definitely the best Harry Potter book yet.

The story takes a departure in that the focus of the mystery is on events OUTSIDE of Hogwarts, at last, in the Ministry of Magic; the scope, therefore, is a lot wider and the book feels bigger (not just in size) and more entertaining as a result.

Also, the sometimes plotless feel of the previous three books is pushed aside as most of Harry’s school year involves him thinking about the Triwizard Tournament, a plot element that provides plenty of spectacle, intrigue and new, deadly monsters and spells. The result is a well-crafted, well-rounded book which proves impossible to put down.
