Description

Suspicion and fear blow through the wizarding world as news of the Dark Lord's attack on the Ministry of Magic spreads. Harry has not told anyone about the future predicted by the prophecy in the Department of Mysteries, nor how deeply what happened to Sirius Black affected him. He's desperate for Professor Dumbledore to arrive and take him away from the Dursley's - but Hogwarts may not be the safe haven from Voldemort's Dark Forces that it once was.

In his sixth year, the names Black, Malfoy, Lestrange and Snape will haunt Harry with shades of trust and treachery as he discovers the secret behind the mysterious Half-Blood Prince - and Dumbledore prepares him to face his own terrifying destiny.

These adult editions with glorious jacket art by Andrew Davidson are now available in hardback for the first time.

Review quote

And you thought wizardry was for children. Harry Potter will make you think again. He casts his spells on grown-ups too * James Naughtie * A gripping story with its clues trailed through the text, chills, spills and some excellent, new comic characters. There is a measure of sadness too ... one of the elements of Rowling's writing that I think entitles her to a seat in the pantheon * Julian Fellowes, Sunday Telegraph * Funny, imaginative, magical ... In the 2020s, thirty-something book-lovers will know each other by smug references to Diagon Alley and Quidditch * The Times * One of the greatest literary adventures of modern times * Sunday Telegraph * Spellbinding, enchanting, bewitching stuff * Mirror *
