As the Harry Potter series draws to a close, Harry's greatest adventure yet is just beginning . . . and it arrives in paperback July 25, 2006.

The war against Voldemort is not going well; even the Muggles have been affected. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.
And yet . . . As with all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Harry receives some extraordinary help in Potions from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince. And with Dumbledore's guidance, he seeks out the full, complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort -- and thus finds what may be his only vulnerability.

About the Author

J.K. Rowling was born in England in 1965. She always loved writing more than anything else, and in 1996, one year after finishing it, Bloomsbury bought her first novel, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. Millions of copies later...the rest is Hogwart's history.

Educated at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Mary GrandPré began her career as a conceptual illustrator for local editorial clients. Continually experimenting with media, Mary underwent many artistic changes in her expressive visual form. Her concerns for light, color, drawing, and design came together in evocative, ethereal pastel paintings evolving toward a style she now calls "soft geometry."

In addition to her work on the covers of the Harry Potter books, Mary has now illustrated several children's books. Her book illustration possesses highly personalized lyrical story interpretations and has received very favorable reviews in the national press.
