by J.K. Rowling

Harry was left a mission before Dumbledore died; he had to find the horcruxes, destroy them and defeat the Dark Lord. Now, a month after the death of Hogwarts’ headmaster, Harry must wait at the Weasley’s house one last time until the mark the Ministry has on him banishes.

In this last installment, Harry must run away from that world he once thought he belonged in, he only has his faithful friends Hermione and Ron to help him while every Death Eater and Snatcher is behind him. He’ll soon find out who are truly his friends, who he can trust and not, more from the past of his parents, Voldemort and Dumbledore’s, and even believe in fairytales where he’ll find that the Deathly Hallows are real and closer than he thought.

All of these, for the greater good.
