Harry Potter is about to start his second year of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, during the summer holidays, he is visited by a house-elf named Dobby and warned not to go back to Hogwarts. As the academic year unfolds, strange events begin to happen. Several students fall victim to a monster that somebody within the school is setting loose. Harry starts to discover more details about his identity and becomes a prime suspect. When he discovers a half-century old diary that tells of previous attacks, the truth slowly begins to slot into place and Harry has to fight to uncover the identity of the real culprit and save not only himself, but his friends as well.
