As Harry Potter's summer vacation from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry draws mercifully to an end, house-elf Dobby mysteriously appears in Harry's bedroom, warning of great danger should Harry return to school. The determined Harry returns, however, only to find that his first-year heroics have made him the center of much unwanted attention. His new fans include: best friend Ron Weasley's little sister, Ginny; first-year would-be photographer Colin Creevey; and most irritatingly, the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor, Gilderoy Lockhart. Driven by unbridled vanity, Lockhart craves the attention that Harry shuns. But, not even Lockhart can explain the sinister new terror that is gripping the school.
