Released on June 21, 2003 to long-awaiting fans, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix quickly surpassed the records of it's predecessor, selling more than 5 million copies in its first weekend on sale in the US.

Preparing to enter his fifth year at Hogwarts at the age of fifteen, Harry Potter is still suffering nightmares, moreso now thanks to Voldemort's return to power. Kept in the dark for the summer by Dumbledore and his friends, Harry is full of anger and angst. But he is soon rescued from the Dursleys after a dementor attack and is informed of the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore's secret group working to stop the rise of Voldemort. Back at school, Harry faces his toughest year yet with his worst Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher yet, a disorganized Quidditch team, private lessons from Snape, girl troubles, and his nightmares, which seem linked to Voldemort.
