Harry Potter has cast his final spell.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", the seventh and final book in J.K. Rowling's overwhelmingly popular Harry Potter series, was released at 12:01 a.m. today.

Waldenbooks in the Sandusky Mall hosted a Grand Hallows Ball from 9:30 p.m. until the books went on sale at 12:01 a.m. Fans lined up outside the store by 8:45 p.m.

"I slept all day so I could stay up all night reading it," 13 year-old Breanna Sharp of Sandusky said while waiting in line with her mom, Kayleen, and 9-year-old sister Courtney.

Holly Ott, 21, of Dayton made Harry Potter-themed costumes for herself and her cousins Sarah Miller, 12, and Hannah Miller, 10, both of Sandusky.

"I just love how it whisks you away into a fantasy world," Ott said of reading the Potter books. Ott said she's going to read the book slowly.

"I'm just going to read it as fast as I can," Sarah Miller replied.
