Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by: J.K Rowling
Harry Potter, the infamous wizard, returns for his third year at Hogwarts in a bit of chaos. First, there was an incident with of his aunts the previous summer that may have caused him to get into big trouble. Then, more significantly, he learns of a criminal that escaped from Azkaban prison right before he returns to Hogwarts. No one has ever escaped from Azkaban before until now. And worst of all, this murderous prisoner, named Sirius Black, escaped to come for Harry. Surely, this prisoner won't be able to come into the castle with all the precautions being taken. dementors, which are grim and horrific creatures, surround the castle in hopes of finding Sirius Black. But what if the others are right? What if Harry goes looking for Black? But Harry doesn't understand why he would have a reason to...
But, things aren't always as they appear to be. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, secrets of the past are unleashed, and these secrets could change the future, and consequences could leave room for changing the past.
This third installment of the Harry Potter series is filled with magic and mystery. Everything is unexpected, so I was always eager to keep reading. Sometimes, I couldn't stop. J.K Rowling is a phenominal writer, as we already know, and it is evident here. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban has an amazing amount of entertainment within its pages, and with the entertainment comes meaning. That can not be said for most books, especially when they are in the middle of a series. Harry Potter in the Prisoner of Azkaban is truly epic.
