Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It's assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney's ghoulish predictions seriously?

This might be my favorite Harry Potter book yet. It was definitely the most action packed so far. I love learning about Sirus's Story! Of course Harry and his friends are growing and developing as characters. The Story continues to deepen.
I always find it so hard to review books that I find truly amazing. I feel like I will sound completely hokey or cheesy. So I try to keep them short and sweet with out giving too many Spoilers away. And this book falls in to that category. It is amazing. Everything about the world of Harry and Hogwarts is amazing. I find myself mesmerized as I soak it all in. Truly a great book.
