Final Harry Potter Book Named

by | 21 December 2006

JK Rowling has announced that the seventh and final Harry Potter book is to be named Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Fans of the novels have to play a game on the author's official website to discover the title  clicking on the rubber in the middle of the site will start things off.

Rumours had gone around before about possible titles; the suggestion of Harry Potter and the Graveyard of Memories was laughed off by Rowling, who said: "Wow, I never thought of that! Now I've got three to choose from. Only kidding, it won't be called [that]."

The title she has chosen more than slightly hints at the dark nature of the final novel that Potter fans are eagerly anticipating.

With Dumbledore left dead at the end of the sixth novel, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and Snape revealing his true colours, the schoolboy wizard and his friends Hermione and Ron are set for a battle with the dark forces and Lord Voldemort.

But one thing that is definitely not going to happen at the end of the final novel is Harry becoming one with Voldemort.

Writing in her rumours section of the site, Rowling said: "Harry will NOT merge with Voldemort to become a single entity, nor would Harry ever wish to command death eaters/dementors/inferi."

No doubt the last novel will sell as successfully as the previous six; Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince became the fastest selling book in history.
