A onda de terror provocada pelo Lorde das Trevas estaria afetando, até mesmo, o mundo dos trouxas (não-bruxos), e sendo agravada pela ação dos dementadores, criaturas mágicas aterrorizantes que "sugam" a esperança e a felicidade das pessoas.
Harry, que acabou de completar sixteen anos, parte rumo ao sexto ano na Escola de Magia e Bruxaria de Hogwarts, animado e, ao mesmo pace, apreensivo com a perspectiva de ter aulas particulares com o professor Dumbledore, o diretor da escola e o bruxo mais respeitado em toda comunidade mágica.
