"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" by J.K. Rowling follows Harry Potter's fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The story begins with the Quidditch World Cup, where Harry witnesses the rise of the Dark Mark, signaling the return of Lord Voldemort. Upon returning to Hogwarts, the school is chosen to host the Triwizard Tournament, a dangerous magical competition between three wizarding schools. Despite being underage, Harry is mysteriously selected as a fourth champion, alongside older students Cedric Diggory, Fleur Delacour, and Viktor Krum.

Throughout the tournament, Harry faces various challenges, including battling a Hungarian Horntail dragon, navigating a treacherous underwater maze, and ultimately witnessing the resurrection of Voldemort. It is revealed that the tournament was manipulated by Barty Crouch Jr., disguised as Mad-Eye Moody, to capture Harry and bring him to Voldemort.

As the Dark Lord returns to power, Harry's struggles intensify. He copes with the loss of his friend Cedric, who is tragically killed by Voldemort after the final task of the tournament. Dumbledore's Army, a secret student organization formed by Harry, Ron, and Hermione, begins to take shape as they prepare for the looming threat of Voldemort's followers, the Death Eaters.

The novel concludes with Dumbledore's reassurance to the wizarding world of Voldemort's return, despite the Ministry of Magic's attempts to suppress the truth. Harry's fourth year ends with a sense of foreboding as the wizarding community braces itself for the dark times ahead, setting the stage for the subsequent books in the series.

"Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" explores themes of courage, friendship, loyalty, and the rise of evil in the face of complacency. It marks a turning point in the series, as the wizarding world grapples with the resurgence of Voldemort and the challenges that lie ahead for Harry and his friends.
