In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the wizarding world is concerned for Harry Potter’s safety when Sirius Black, an escapee from the prison of Azkaban, is believed to be hunting him.

Harry also learns one of the most valuable spells of all: how to invoke the Patronus Charm that allows him to banish Dementors, and his own deepest fears.
