Când un autobuz magic apare de nicăieri în întunericul nopții și se oprește chiar în fața lui Harry Potter atunci ne putem imagina că va fi un nou an neobișnuit pentru acesta la Hogwarts. Sirius Black, criminal în serie și susținător al Lordului Voldemort a evadat de la Azkaban și se spune că se află pe urmele lui Harry. În primul ei curs de chiromanție profesoara Trelawney vede un semn al morții în ceașca de ceai a lui Harry, dar probabil cel mai terifiant lucru care se află la Hogwarts sunt Dementorii care patrulează holurile instituției de magie și stârnesc groaza cu sărutul lor care ia suflete. Harry a crescut, iar o dată cu el, umbrele care îl urmăresc sunt din ce în ce mai întunecate..
