Some things happened that kept me very much surprised.
I like Tonks/Remus.. (not as much as Sirius/Remus for sure *my otp for the series*.. but I will concede that I like it alot more then I did in the LAST book) and I lol'd at the BLATANT SMACK IN THE H/HR FANS FACE *it's there and it's hilarious*
There will be alot of fandom wank for this one, and I can't imagine that the H/HR fans will be too happy about this.
Oh yes and..
for anyone curious about who dies...
WTF! READ THE GODDAMNED BOOK.. THEN YOU'LL KNOW WHO DIES
