Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts for his fifth year at the school, but it is a changed world that he comes to, for the Dark Lord has returned and he has yet to make his move. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the fifth part of J. K. Rowling?s bestselling Harry Potter series of fantasy novels.
Summary of the Book
The world doesn?t make sense anymore. The Dark Lord, He Who Must Not Be Named, returned to power a few weeks ago. So why are the issues of the Daily Prophet covered with ordinary stories? Why is there no mention of Voldemort?s return, let alone no mention of the efforts that are being taken to prevent his complete return to power? Harry Potter can?t understand why the world seems so strange these days. To add to his chagrin, the Ministry decides to slap an expulsion order citing the Decree for the Reasonable Restriction of Underage Sorcery and demands that Harry appear for a hearing in front of the entire Wizarding judiciary like a wanted criminal. However, Harry only used magic in front of his cousin to protect him from a deadly Dementor. For that matter, what was a dementor doing in Little Whinging? Harry Potter can?t seem to put a finger on these events, but he knows one thing for certain: there is one man who has all the answers, the great and powerful Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, the Headmaster of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and the only one Voldemort fears. But for some reason, Dumbledore refuses to so much as make eye contact with Harry this year! Return to Hogwarts and join Harry, Ron and Hermione for another year of adventures and magic.
