It's the pivotal fourth novel in the seven-part tale of Harry Potter's training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event that's supposed to take place at Hogwarts this year, an event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn't happened for a hundred years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. Unfortunately for Harry Potter, he's not normal even by wizarding standards.

And in his case, different can be deadly.

Book In Short:

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

Harry spends his remaining summer holiday with the Weasley family and Hermione Granger before attending the Quidditch World Cup. One night, Harry has a nightmare that Lord Voldemort and Peter "Wormtail" Pettigrew are discussing how Voldemort's "faithful servant" can somehow get to him. Voldemort's snake, Nagini, informs him that Frank Bryce, the Riddle Manor caretaker, is standing outside. Voldemort kills Bryce with the Avada Kedavra curse and Harry awakens with his scar throbbing in pain.

Harry, Hermione, and the Weasleys meet up with Amos Diggory and his son, Cedric, and they set off for the Quidditch World Cup. Atop a hill is a Portkey that transports the group to the event. The Weasley party stays in tents that appear small from the outside, but upon entering, magically open into large comfortable abodes. At the stadium they encounter Minister of Magic Cornelius Fudge and the Malfoy family. That evening there is a loud commotion. Arthur Weasley investigates then orders everyone to leave immediately because Death Eaters were attacking nearby Muggles. Harry, Ron, and Hermione hid in the woods. The Dark Mark suddenly appeared in the night sky which caused more terror and panic. Harry discovered his wand to be missing. Once found it was implicated in conjuring the Dark Mark, although Harry was deemed innocent. The house elf Winky was found with the wand and held responsible. (It is later revealed that someone else conjured the Dark Mark.)

At Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore introduced retired Auror "Mad-Eye" Moody as the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. He also announced that the interschool competition, the Triwizard Tournament, will be held at Hogwarts. One student from each competing school, (Hogwarts, Beauxbatons, and Durmstrang), will be selected as champions. Barty Crouch of the Ministry of Magic stated that students under age 17 are ineligible to compete. The Goblet selected Cedric Diggory, Fleur Delacour, and Viktor Krum, as the respective champions. Mysteriously, the Goblet chose Harry Potter as the fourth champion. Even though he was underage and claimed to not have entered, he was forced to. Many students believed that he cheated including Ron who became jealous over the constant attention Harry receives.

Hagrid revealed to Harry and Madame Maxime, Headmistress of Beauxbatons Academy, that the first event involved battling a dragon to retrieve a golden egg. Harry tipped off Cedric Diggory. Harry jointly won the first task with Viktor Krum. After seeing how dangerous the first challenge was, Ron realized that Harry did not cheat to enter the Tournement and they reconcile.

At Christmas students attended the Yule Ball. As a Triwizard champion, Harry was required to have a partner for the opening dance. He invited Ravenclaw student, Cho Chang, but she was already Cedric Diggory's date. He eventually asked his classmate, Parvati Patil, and Ron goes with Parvati's twin, Padma. At the dance, both boys, and the rest of the school, were stunned to see a beautiful Hermione on Viktor Krum's arm, which leads to an unpleasant fight between Hermione and a jealous Ron. Fleur's partner was Ravenclaw Quidditch Captain, Roger Davies.

Cedric Diggory gave Harry a clue to solve the riddle needed for the second challenge: each champion must rescue a friend who has been hidden in the Black Lake by the merpeople. Harry must retrieve Ron, Krum must rescue Hermione, Fleur must rescue her little sister Gabby, and Cedric is to save Cho Chang. Harry reached the target first but stayed behind to rescue the other champion's "friends" as well causing him to finish second. He is now tied for first place with Cedric Diggory.

The final event is a maze, within which the Triwizard Cup is hidden. Whoever retrieved the cup first would be the victor. Harry and Cedric reached the cup together but, because they helped one another, they agree to grab the cup simultaneously. As it turned out, the cup was a portkey that transported them to a graveyard where Wormtail and Voldemort await. On Voldemort's command, Pettigrew killed Cedric then conducted a ritual using Harry's blood which restored Voldemort's body. Voldemort summoned the Death Eaters before engaging Harry in a duel. Unknown to Voldemort their wands were "brothers" (each core contained a tail feather from the phoenix, Fawkes). The wands work improperly against one another and a Priori Incantatem results. Voldemort's wand spills out echoes of the last five people it killed. The images momentarily shielded Harry so that he could escape through the portkey with Cedric's body.

After Voldemort's plan failed, Alastor Moody attempted to kill Harry but was prevented by Dumbledore, Snape and McGonagall. It is then found that Moody was actually Barty Crouch Jr, who had imprisoned the real Alastor Moody in a magical trunk and used Polyjuice Potion to impersonate him. It was Crouch who had entered Harry’s name into the Goblet of Fire and had ensured that he reached the Triwizard Cup. Snape administered Veritaserum to force Crouch's confession, but before it could be repeated to the authorities Cornelius Fudge's guard, a dementor proceeded to suck out his soul
