Fear and Eager Anticipation Strikes "Harry Potter" Fans

JONESBORO, AR -- The seventh and final book in the "Harry Potter" series was released at 12:01 on Saturday morning.  Fans awaited the arrival of this book with mixed emotions.

"We want to find out if Voldermort and Harry die or if Harry lives," said Jonathan Gibson.

Many of the fans are worried about the fate of the young wizard in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" while others are sad that the series is ending.

"I've been reading these books for so long and I don't want it to end," said Krystle McClung.

The ending of the book has been shrouded with secrecy, especially after some of the secrets allegedly leaked out earlier this week.

"You don't really know what's going to happen to Harry," said Dalton Palmer.

"I'm scared because we need to figure out what would really happen," said Gibson.

There are a lot of theories out there about which character will meet their untimely death at the end of the final book.

I'm kind of scared about how things are going to turn out because of the way clues have been here and there.  I'm not sure I'll love the ending, but there's the possibility I'll love it at the same time," said McClung.
