Harry Potter ends, but lives

The Harry Potter series has ended, after the release of Harry Potter 7th book: The Deathly Hallows last Saturday, July 21 at exactly 12:01 AM in the US, Canada, UK and other English speaking countries.

But as to the question whether Harry Potter himself lives or dies, the wizard boy-turned-man lives, has lived and will always live in our hearts.

In wikipedia, it states what has transpired in the last book. From the beginning of the said J.K. Rowling book until its ending, you'll get a glimpse of what the newly released Harry Potter book is all about.

Here are some important happenings and events in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:


Voldemort plans to kill Harry when he is being moved to a new safe place, which must happen when he turns seventeen and his safety with the Dursleys expires.

Hedwig, Harry's owl, is killed by a stray Killing Curse.

George Weasley has lost an ear due to the Sectumsempra curse cast by Snape, and Alastor Moody had been killed by Voldemort himself.

The Minister of Magic arrives at The Burrow to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione bequests from Dumbledore's will. Ron is given Dumbledore's Deluminator (or "Put-Outer"), with the power to capture lights, Hermione receives a book of children's stories written in Ancient Runes, and Harry inherits Godric Gryffindor's sword and the first Snitch that Harry had ever caught.

Harry, Ron, and Hermione are told an old wizard story about three brothers who bested Death, and each had received a magical item for it, the three Deathly Hallows – an unbeatable wand (called the Elder Wand), a stone which could bring back the dead (the Resurrection Stone), and an Invisibility Cloak that never failed with age.

Lovegood has betrayed them to the Ministry; Luna, his daughter, has been taken captive and he believes that giving them Harry Potter would cause them to free her.

Hermione is tortured and interrogated by Bellatrix Lestrange to find how she acquired Godric Griffindor's sword, believing it to have been stolen from her vault (Bellatrix's one is a fake), while Harry and Ron are imprisoned in the basement with Dean Thomas, Griphook the goblin, Ollivander the wand maker, and Luna Lovegood.

They escape as Voldemort is close to arriving, but Dobby is slain by Bellatrix Lestrange as they flee to Shell Cottage, Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour's home.

Hagrid is captured by Acromantulas and later ends up a captive in the hands of the Death Eaters. Fred Weasley's estranged brother Percy Weasley arrives and reunites with his family. Just after, a Death eater kills Fred. In the same battle, Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, and Colin Creevey are also killed (the exact cause is unconfirmed).

As he dies from the snake bite, Snape gives up his memories to Harry, who uses the Pensieve to find out that Snape was on Dumbledore's side, motivated by his lifelong love of Lily Evans (Harry's mother). Snape was asked by Dumbledore to kill him if the situation demands it; the curse placed on the Horcrux ring (which is also the Resurrection Stone) limited Dumbledore's life, regardless.

Harry also discovers that he himself is a Horcrux, and that Voldemort cannot be killed while Harry remains alive.

Harry awakens and meets the deceased Albus Dumbledore in an enormous deserted hall, which is explained to be a sort of equivalent to King's Cross railway station. Here, it is explained he cannot die while Voldemort lives since he used Harry's blood to recreate his body, and Lily's protection binds the two.

Hagrid carries Harry (seemingly dead) back to Hogwarts to much dismay and shock to those there. Bravely, Voldemort is faced down by Neville, who rejects his offer to join him and become a Death Eater.

When Voldemort strikes Harry with the killing curse from the Elder Wand it rebounds and kills Voldemort.

In the story's epilogue, taking place 19 years after the Second Battle of Hogwarts, Harry and Ginny Weasley are married and have three children named James, Albus Severus, and Lily. Ron and Hermione are also married and have two children named Rose and Hugo.

It is revealed that Neville Longbottom has become the Herbology Professor at Hogwarts.

Harry's scar has not hurt since the Dark Lord's defeat.
