“What Will Happen in HP 7?”
How will the adventure finally end? Is Snape really a good guy or is his heart truly with the dark side? This book – an unauthorized independent fan publication – is written by the founder of Mugglenet.com, probably the most popular Harry Potter site of the many in existence today. The book, and all other ones prior to No. 7, have hit the best seller lists. They tackle the questions that HP author J.K. Rowling has left dangling in front of readers for years. The book(s) also analyze (possible) hidden clues to the final and ultimate outcome of the “boy wizard.” For millions waiting for the final installment of HP, this book will help relieve some of the suspense and hopefully, help answer some burning questions, as well as, help piece the puzzle together.
The End of Harry Potter?
The author attempts to unravel some of the HP mysteries – much of the same of the other books out on the subject – but he does it in a more light-hearted manner offering scenarios for the abundant supply of lingering questions on the matter of the boy wizard. Another aspect of this version of the book is a refresher of the previous Harry Potter books to ready one’s self for the finale.

The book takes readers through Marley’s life, once again telling the heart-warming story of one pure-hearted animal who gave one family a new understanding of unconditional love and what really matters in life.
