Harry ends up getting to his friend Ron's house towards the end of the summer to attend the Quiddich World Cup with his friends. Harry enjoys what seems like the start of an amazing year in the wizarding world, but the vibe changes when someone sends the Dark Mark, the Dark Lord Voldemort's sign featuring a skull and a snake. Voldemort is growing stronger...
At school, the Triwizard Tornament is about to begin. It's an ancient competition that hasn't happened for hundreds of years. Three schools (Hogworts and two other foreign ones) join together for a year to watch three students (one from each school) compete in three dangerous tasks. The age restriction is seventeen, so many students aren't allowed to put their names forth to be chosen in the Goblet of Fire. But there's a dark wizard at Hogworts this year, and somehow Harry's name pops up as the fourth contestant. He has no choice and must compete against Hugglepuff Cedric Diggory, the beautiful Fluer Delacore, and the Bulgarian Seeker from the World Cup Viktor Krum.
Throughout the year, as Harry is haunted by thoughts of Voldemort, and he starts to think that the Dark Lord is rising once again. Once again, Rowling continues a fantastic tale full of magic, dangerous beasts, betrayal, and action.
This book may look like a lot (over 700 pages long), but the story is so interesting that I zoomed through it. Again, it was cool to see the foreshadowing (cool one on page 221 if anyone's interested) and the all around writing technique of Rowling is so intruiging. Like always, the villan of the story is unmasked in the end, completely unexpected.
