For twelve long years, the dread fortress of Azkaban held an infamous prisoner named Sirius Black. 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 Azkaban 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 the magical school, surrounded by his friends. Because on top of it all, there may well be a traitor in their midst

I am almost out of steam here, this is the last review I have backed up and need to get I am almost out of gushing because both of the series I have been reading are my favorites. This is the third book in the Harry Potter series and it is my favorite of all seven. This is the year when everything changes, the year when Harry and his friends are no longer having adventures but are the point when they have to start facing life and death decisions and choices...and honestly isn't this the age when everything feels that way anyway?

I love that in this book we get to see more of Harry Potter's fascinating world. We get to meet new and exciting (sometimes dangerous) creatures and we get to step outside of Hogwarts into the real wizarding world.

I get to see more personality from Hermione and from Ron...I get to meet some new family and new evil creatures. This world is so fascinating and it has me totally head first ensnared...I love it so much. *snuggles under Harry Potter blanket*
