Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Dumbledore takes Harry with him to visit Slughorn, whom he hopes to convince to come back to Hogwarts as a teacher. He then sends Harry to the Weasleys for the end of the summer. Meanwhile, Snape takes an unbreakable vow to protect Malfoy and assist him in whatever task the Dark Lord has assigned to him. In the train back to school, Harry spies on Malfoy, whom he suspects to be now a Death Eater. At school, Slughorn teaches potions, and since Harry didn't intend at first to take this course, the teacher tells him to take a textbook from the cupboard. The one he takes belonged to the mysterious Half-Blood Prince and is full of useful indications, making Harry first of his class in Potions. Dumbledore then shows Harry memories he had collected over the years about Tom Riddle, and particularly one belonging to Slughorn which had been tampered with. Harry then befriends the teacher (an easy task, since the latter tries to collect exceptional students) and eventually manages to get a copy of the original memory, where Slughorn explains to Riddle what is a Horecrux (an object where one can hide part of one's soul) and that it is possible to split a soul in seven parts (meaning you have to kill seven people). Dumbledore, who had been investigating possible horecruxes during the year, then takes Harry to a cave where one possible Horecrux is hidden. They manage to find it and return to Hogwarts. Dumbledore tells Harry to hide just before Malfoy arrives, followed by Death Eaters he had let into the castle. Malfoy's task is to kill Dumbledore, but he can't do it. Snape then arrives and kills the headmaster. In the end, the horecrux (a pendant) happens to be a fake, it had already been replaced by a mysterious R.A.B. Harry also announces that he wouldn't return to Hogwarts the next year.
