Harry Potter is a series of seven fantasy novels that were written by J.K. Rowling. The seven novels focus on the life of Harry Potter, a young boy who discovers he has magical talents while living with his cruel aunt and uncle. He attends Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardy (against their wishes) where he learns to hone his magical skills and meets loyal friends who help him fight evil.
All of the battles that he and his friends engage in prepare them for when they meet Harry's archnemesis, Lord Voldemort. Lord Voldemart wants to overthrow the wizard governing body, control the wizards as well as those who are non-magical, and become immortal. Throughout the seven novels, J. K. Rowling explores themes of courage, bravery, loyalty, family, friendship, choice, and death.
