BOOKHarry Potter and the Half Blood PrinceBy: Lucas Giron

When Harry enters his 6th year at Howgrats school of Witchraft of Wizardy, the world is very Dangerous. Tragedy's happening left and right. While Voldermort's army is getting stronger. Not even Howgrats is safe. Meanwhile when Harry enters Potions in Howgrats he uses a used textbook that belongs to some person called "Half Blood Prince" who gives him hints and explanations making him ace Potions. While Harry enters his sixth year in Howgrats he has special meetings with Dumbledore to learn about Voldermort's past and people who had direct contact to him. With these lessons Harry learns about Horcuxes. Which is a powerful, and illegal kind of Dark Magic that allows the soul to be divided. Given its owner the ability to became immortal. With these lessons he learns the complete story about the boy who became Lord Voldermort and and that Voldermort has seven horcuxes. When Harry learns that someone has to destroy all of them to kill him. He makes this his ultimate goal and mission in life. When Harry sees Malfoy doing some sketchy work at Burgin and Burkes. He starts to believe that Malfoy is a Death Eater like his father. Even though now one believes him, Harry is determind to find out by watching him on the Marauder's map (which is a map that allows you to watch where people go).With Harry's last day with Dumbledore they go and try to destroy a horcuxe. It turned out to be very dangerous and hard and with Dumbledore in serious conditions. When Dumbledore is back in normal conditions with a drink of a liquid, he goes to Howgrats to only see the Dark Mark (the sign of Voldermort) on top of of it. He goes in to be single handed out by Malfoy (Which turned out to be a death eater). But before this he did a spell that made Harry freeze and couldn't move. Since he had his invisibility cloat, he couldn't be seen. Malfoy had orders from Voldermort to kill Dumbledore. But couldn't do it and so Snape did it. After this Harry is left with a great loss in is life but is determind to finish what he and Dumbledore started. To kill Voldermort and get revenge on Snape.

Summary

Theme

In the 6th book of the Harry Potter Series there is a variety of themes. One of the most important themes in the book is friendship. Once again Harry relies on the help and support of his friends, Ron and Hermoine. While Harry tries to find out the full and complex story about the boy who became Lord Voldermort, He relies on his friends to help him out. The second important theme in this book is trust. Harry trusts his friends without a doubt and has the same loyalty to Dumbledore. Harry keeps following his orders and trust him that he is guiding him the right way.

Characters

In the 6th book there is a lot of characters. But I believe you should know the important ones. Harry,Ron, Hermione, and Dumbledore are the one of the most important Characters in the book. Snape is also important. He is the new Defense against the arts teacher and also betrays and kills Dumbledore. Professer Slughorn is the new Potions teacher at Howgrats. The reason why he is important because when Harry is learning about the childhood of Lord Voldermort. He needs the last and most important memory about the younger Lord Voldermort that convincing him to get the crucial information about horcuxes. Draco Malfoy is the son of convicted Lucius Malfoy. Draco is cold, mean, and demanding. Harry believes that Draco is a Death Eater like is father (which he is). Lord Voldermort also known as Tom Riddle is feared person that plans with his followers to try to kill Harry. Ginny Weasley is Ron's pretty and popular sister. Harry devoleps strong feelings about her but does not say anything about it because he doesn't want to jeopardize his friendship with Ron. But after a triumphant quiditch match, Harry kisses her, to Ron's approval. Ginny is extremly brave and helps and supports Harry through his adventure. Other characters are : Mrs. Mconagall, Mr. and Mrs. Weasly, Bellatrix Lestrange, Luicous Malfoy and more

.The most important setting in the book is Howgrats. Its where everything goes down. To Dumbledore's death and to Harry's classes, fights and him falling in love. The Dursley's house is another important setting. Even though it is not a place of love and comfort for Harry. He has to stay there every summer to make sure he is safe. The Burrow is a place of love and happiness for Harry. Harry goes to the Burrow(Ron's House) every year right before he has to go to Howgrats to get is supplies for Howgrats. The Cave is also a really important setting in the book. The Cave is where Dumbledore and Harry go to try to destroy a horcuxe. But of course it turned out really bad, with Dumbledore in serious conditions. Diagon Alley is like Times Square in the wizarding world. It is where Harry gets his supplies and everthing he needs for Howgrats.

I would really recommend this book to anyone. If you like action, mystery, fantasy and magic. This is the book for you. It has a great and intresting plot and climax. It is a great book and I believe you should really read it!
