With the help of Hogwarts headmaster Dumbledore, Harry escapes punishment and realizes that he has ties to Voldemort. Having nightmares about Voldemort’s plans at night, the scar on Harry’s forehead aches more than ever. On the other hand, the Ministry of Magic, not believing that Voldemort is back, appoints a new inspector at Hogwarts. The school has more authoritarian rules than ever before. So much so that Defense Against the Dark Arts Lesson was removed from the curriculum.
Trying to protect themselves against Voldemort’s treacherous plans, the students form a group called Dumbledore’s Army, led by Harry, and take defense lessons among themselves. Harry and his friends are also now aware of the Order of the Phoenix group formed by Dumbledore against Voldemort.

But who will stop Voldemort if Harry dies? Who will win the war?
8) Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Although this book is not mentioned much because there is no movie among the Harry Potter books, and it was written after a long time, the adventure continues precisely 19 years later! Harry is still not free from the traces of the past. Moreover, his son Albus is having a hard time with the burden of his family legacy. While the past insists on influencing the future, Harry and his son Albus are shaken by the truth from the dark.
This last piece of work by J.K. Rowling, released precisely 19 years later, was written as a play scene. Despite this, it can be said that the book is a continuation of the story.
