Books - New Harry Potter book title annnounced

Just heard from the grapevine (actually its Borders, I'm on their mailing list) that the title of the new Harry Potter book is out. Its going to be called - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Its the 7th book in the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling and I have enjoyed reading most of them. Although I have noticed that the stories are getting darker with each book.


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."

No news on the exact date of launch of the new book though its probably some time in 2007.
