The final Harry Potter book will hit shops on July 21. Publisher Bloomsbury made the long-awaited announcement yesterday (01.02.07) confirming 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' - the seventh and final book in series - will go on sale this summer. The book will be available to buy from midnight and huge queues are expected as Potter-mania sweeps the nation again. One fan Laura Simons, 26, said: "I was planning to go on holiday at the end of July but as soon as I heard the last Harry Potter is out I changed my mind." Ever since the first in the series - 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' - was released ten years ago, subsequent books have been met with frenzied excitement. Author JK Rowling has warned fans to expect some sinister shocks, including the deaths of two main characters. She said: "We are dealing with pure evil here. They don't target extras, do they? They go for the main characters - well, I do." Thousands of fans are already placing orders for the book online, even though there are still six months to go.Christopher North, head of books at amazon.co.uk said: "Demand is already incredible for the final book. July 21 will be Harry Potter day all over the world."
