Convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, he was said to be the heir apparent to the Dark Lord, Voldemort. Now he has escaped, leaving only two clues as to where he might be headed: Harry Potter's defeat of You-Know-Who was Black's downfall as well. And the Azkban guards heard Black muttering in his sleep, "He's at Hogwarts...he's at Hogwarts." Harry Potter isn't safe, not even within the walls of his magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Once again, Rowling has created a mystery that will have children and adults cheering, not to mention standing in line for her next book.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Rowling's wit never flags, whether constructing the workings of the wizard world or tossing off quick jokes. The Potter spell is holding strong.” Publishers Weekly
“The pace is nonstop, with thrilling games of Quidditch, terrifying Omens of Death, some skillful time travel, and lots of slimy Slytherins sneaking about causing trouble. This is a fabulously entertaining read that will have Harry Potter fans cheering for more.” School Library Journal
“The main characters and the continuing story both come along so smartly that the book seems shorter than its page count: have readers clear their calendars if they are fans, or get out of the way if they are not.” Kirkus Reviews
“Jim Dale, with his fully voiced reading, brings the world of wizards to life in ways unimagined even by those who have read and re-read the book.” AudioFile
