Publisher's Summary

The fourth title in the continuing saga includes Harry’s latest adventure at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Our Review

As the fourth installment in the Harry Potter series, The Goblet of Fire is like the rest of the books, excellent. I would probably say that the majority of readers were starting to wonder when the action was going to pick up by the end of the third book. When would Voldemort return? And we got our answer.

Harry Potter begins his fourth year at Hogwarts. Little does he know that the school is hosting an international school competition between three schools. A student from each school is selected to compete in three tasks. The three champions are chosen by the mysterious Goblet of Fire, but then, Harry is chosen as a forth school champion. Neither he nor any of the school professors can explain why the Goblet did this. Who could have fooled such a powerful magical object to make Harry a fourth champion, and why?

Regardless, Harry must compete and he is faced with three seemingly impossible tasks. Meanwhile he learns of a spy at Hogwarts, the one who secretly hoodwinked the Goblet of Fire to submit Harry’s name. Harry must be careful to avoid the evil intentions of the spy while still managing to stay alive in the Triwizard Tournament. All the while, the Dark Lord Voldemort, bides his time, waiting for the perfect moment to return to power.

Of the first four Harry Potter books, this is perhaps my favorite. Once again J. K. Rowling places us at Hogwarts with a new and exciting challenge. The characters remain just as believable as ever with the addition of several new characters with international origins.

The ending is perhaps the most significant ending thus far in the series. While not giving any details away, this book will most definitely cause new readers to passionately seek out the fifth book. Once again the story ends on a twist that we didn’t see coming. Overall, a great addition to the series and a big step forward in the story’s progression.
