The book was published in September 2008, and has been translated into more than nine languages. Just like its predecessor, it has also been adapted as an independent film by Kellen Gibbs.

Book Description Edit

A summer of change brings James back to Hogwarts with a new perspective. And confident that last year's adventures are well behind him, he prepares for the immense challenges of schoolwork, trying-out for the Qudditch team, and keeping an eye on his brother Albus and cousin Rose.

But for James, a new school year brings some worrying questions about the new headmaster, as well as the increasing fear that an entirely new and unspeakable evil has entered the world, one whose origins stretch all the way back to the time of the founders. Unsure who to trust, but knowing that all of his hopes hinge on the questionable loyalties of one individual, James faces a struggle that challenges his deepest fears...and most secret hopes.
