- Plot summary
At Malfoy Manor, Snape tells Voldemort the date that Harrys friends are planning to move him from the house on Privet Drive to a new safe location, so that Voldemort can capture Harry en route. As Harry packs to leave Privet Drive, he reads two obituaries for Dumbledore, both of which make him think that he didnt know Dumbledore as well as he should have. Downstairs, he bids good-bye to the Dursleys for the final time, as the threat of Voldemort forces them to go into hiding themselves.
The Order of the Phoenix, led by Alastor Mad-Eye Moody, arrives to take Harry to his new home at the Weasleys house, the Burrow. Six of Harrys friends take Polyjuice Potion to disguise themselves as Harry and act as decoys, and they all fly off in different directions. The Death Eaters, alerted to their departure by Snape, attack Harry and his friends. Voldemort chases Harry down, but Harrys wand fends Voldemort off, seemingly without Harrys help. Harry arrives at the Burrow, and when his friends get there, he learns that Moody has been killed and George Weasley maimed in the chase. Harry begins to have visions in which he sees what Voldemort is doing through Voldemorts eyes, and witnesses Voldemort interrogating a wand maker, trying to find out how to defeat Harry. As they Disapparate back to the house on Grimmauld Place, Hermione accidentally leads one of the Death Eaters inside the protective enchantments, so they are forced to abandon the house and go on the run, moving from place to place and camping in the woods. They dont know where to look for the next Horcrux, and they dont know how to destroy the locket, which is protected by powerful magic. Harry has a vision of Voldemort tracking down another famous wand maker and looking for a young man who stole a wand. One night, in the forest, Harry and friends overhear a goblin saying that the Sword of Gryffindor that had been in the headmasters office at Hogwarts is a fake. Harry realizes that the real Sword of Gryffindor has the power to destroy Horcruxes, and that they need to find it. Ron, frustrated at their lack of progress, gets fed up and abandons Harry and Hermione. One night, while Harry is keeping watch, a silver doe Patronus appears and leads him to the Sword of Gryffindor, buried beneath the ice in a pond. Harry dives in, and the locket Horcrux around his neck tries to strangle him. Ron, who has returned, saves Harry, recovers the sword, and destroys the locket. Voldemort takes Harry, whom he believes to be dead, back to Hogwarts to demand its surrender. The students and teachers defy Voldemort, and Neville uses the Sword of Gryffindor to kill the giant snake, Nagini, which was the last Horcrux keeping Voldemort invulnerable. A final battle erupts, and Harry reveals that hes still alive, going on to kill Voldemort in a duel.
Harry and Hermione go to Godrics Hollow, where they visit the graves of Harrys parents and see the house where he lived before Voldemort killed them. An old woman named Bathilda Bagshot leads them into her house, and they follow, hoping that she knew Dumbledore and can give them the sword, but she turns out to be dead, her body inhabited by Voldemorts snake, Nagini. They barely escape, and Harrys wand is destroyed in the fight. Harry reads the new (and malicious) biography of Dumbledore, which claims that Dumbledore helped the Dark wizard Grindelwald as a young man and may have been responsible for his own sisters death. Harry recognizes in a photograph in the book the young man whom Voldemort is seeking, and it is Grindelwald. Harry learns from a vision of Voldemorts that the final Horcrux is at Hogwarts, so they travel to the nearby village of Hogsmeade. There they meet Aberforth, Dumbledores brother, who helps them get into Hogwarts through a painting by summoning Neville Longbottom, who has been organizing meetings of Dumbledores Army in the hidden Room of Requirement. Harry asks the members of the D.A., who are all his supporters, if they can think of an important item associated with the school, hoping such an item might be the final Horcrux. The Ravenclaw students tell him about the lost diadem of Ravenclaw. From one of Snapes conversations with Dumbledore, Harry learns that theres a piece of Voldemorts soul inside him (Harry is in fact the final Horcrux), and that he will have to let Voldemort kill him before Voldemort can die. He goes into the forest and lets Voldemort kill him, then wakes up in a dreamlike version of Kings Cross train station, where Dumbledore meets him and tells him that he hasnt died, and that the protective charm Lily Potter placed on Harry is kept alive inside of Voldemort, because Voldemort used Harrys blood to reconstitute himself. Thus, Voldemort could not kill Harry, and Harry can now go back and finish him off.
Harry, Ron, and Hermione go to visit Xenophilius Lovegood, because Hermione has discovered a strange symbol in the book Dumbledore left her, and they had seen Xenophilius wearing it. Xenophilius explains that the symbol represents the Deathly Hallows, three objectsthe Elder Wand, Resurrection Stone, and Invisibility Cloakthat were made by Death and that give the owner of the three objects mastery over death.
At Malfoy Manor, Bellatrix Lestrange tortures Hermione for information about where they got the sword they are carrying, since she thought it was in her vault at Gringotts bank. She is very concerned about anything else they might have taken. Dobby, the Malfoys former house-elf, helps Harry and his friends to escape, along with Ollivander the wand maker, Luna Lovegood, and Griphook the goblin. Harry takes them all to Rons brother Bills cottage. Harry guesses that Voldemort has a Horcrux stored in Bellatrixs vault, since she seemed so worried about it, and he persuades Griphook the goblin to help him break into the vault. With Griphooks help, Harry, Ron, and Hermione break in and steal the Hufflepuff Cup from the vault, then escape on the back of a dragon.
In an Epilogue set nineteen years later, Harry is married to Ginny and is sending their children to Hogwarts. Ron and Hermione are married, and their families are both thriving.

The story of the Deathly Hallows conveys a lot more than what words denote. It doesn’t just tell us about the fate of the three brothers, but also the nature of death itself. Death is cunning and treacherous, and what makes us all the more vulnerable to it is the fact that irrespective of knowing it to be inevitable, we wish to master it.
Summary: After the death of Albus Dumbledore by the hand of Snape, who is being directed by Voldemort, Harry Potter is determined to find a way to kill Voldemort. The only way to kill Voldemort is by destroying his Horcruxes, parts of his soul that he has put into different objects or things.

The three objects mentioned during the tale are believed by some to be the Deathly Hallows, the most powerful magical objects of their kind in existence. The Elder Wand is the unbeatable wand of the oldest brother, the Resurrection Stone is the stone given to the second brother that can bring back the dead, and the Cloak of Invisibility is the cloak given to the third brother that could hide the wearer even from Death.It is believed that whoever succeeds in uniting all three of the Hallows wo...
The eponymous three brothers are believed to have been modelled after three actual wizard brothers born somewhere around the British wizarding village of Godric's Hollow during early 13th century: Antioch, Cadmus, and Ignotus Peverell.Antioch was the oldest brother, who likely crafted as well as possessed the Elder Wand that was passed down not by inheritance but through combat. It became the property of whoever won it from its previous master and held a long and bloody history until it came...
