Synopsis

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

Harry Potter can't wait for his holidays with the dire Dursleys to end. But a small, self-punishing house-elf warns Harry of mortal danger awaiting him at Hogwarts. Returning to the castle nevertheless, Harry hears a rumour about a Chamber of Secrets, holding unknown horrors for wizards of Muggle parentage. Then students are found as though turned to stone, and a terrible warning is discovered painted on the wall. The chief suspect - always in the wrong place - is Harry. But something much darker has yet to be unleashed. These adult editions with glorious jacket art by Andrew Davidson are now available in hardback for the first time.

Reviews

'And you thought wizardry was for children. Harry Potter will make you think again. He casts his spells on grown-ups too' James Naughtie

'Rowling has woven together clues, hints and characters from previous books into a prodigiously rewarding, suspenseful conclusion' Guardian

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.
