Exclusive Preview of the Climax to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Through means I won't disclose here, I have gotten access to a special, sneak preview of the dramatic climax to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final book in the series about the boy wizard. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will be published July 21 of this year, with an unprecedented print run of 12 million copies here in the United States alone. Anyhow, without further ado, here is the special, sneak preview...
------------
Voldemort stood over Harry as he clung precariously to the cliff's edge. Around them a storm raged. Lightning forked the sky and the wind blew so loudly that it was difficult for either of them to hear. Regardless, Voldemort smiled and said loudly enough for Harry to hear, "Potter, there is no escape. Don't make me destroy you. You do not yet realise your importance. You have only begun to discover your power.Join me and I will continue teaching you. With our combined strength, we can rule the world."

Harry shook his head furiously in disbelief at what he was hearing. "I'll never join you!"

Voldemort laughed. "If you only knew the power of the Dark Arts. Dumbledore never told you what happened to your father."

Harry yelled. "He told me enough! He told me you murdered my mother and father!"

The wind abruptly increased to the point that Harry thought it might sweep him from the cliff. Thunder rang through the air and there was a bright flash of lightning. Voldemort's smile grew wider and he laughed again. "No. I am your father."

A look of sheer terror came over Harry's face. "No. No. That's not true! That's impossible!"

Voldemort replied, "Search your feelings, Potter. You know it to be true."
------------
I hope you enjoyed this special, sneak preview. I only have one more thing to add--if you really believe this is a special sneak preview of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, well, then, "April Fool's!'

hmmm this ending seems familiar to me somehow... but then, I am a small brained forgetful cat.

Best look out for yourself! You might get slapped with a Cease And Desist from JKR Publishing.

(Either that or a plagerism suit from Lucasfilm Ltd.)

That's funny. I started by looking at it as serious but when I read "I am your father" I had a feeling I'd missed something.

Good one!

LOL. I'm not too worried about JKR or Lucasfilm Ltd. Parody is protected under the 1st amendment according to a Supreme Court decision years back. Too, it's nothing compared to the Harry Potter and Star Wars send ups that have been on The Soup!

I was just joking (perhaps a little too dryly). ;)

LOL. Keep in mind that I can be daft when I get off work...
