How does the book end?
Well, not counting the 19 years later epilogue, the book ends with Harry returning to Hogwarts to find the Horcrux hidden there. Professor Mc Gonagall leads the rebellion of Hogwarts to buy Harry time to find and destroy the Horcrux, and the students are evacuated while the order of the pheonix and members of Dumbledore's army are summoned by Neville Longbottom to help, as the Death Eaters, giants, spiders and Voldemort come to attack the castle. The long battle ends up having a cameo for just about every major and minor character on both sides (except a few who wouldn't make sense, like Umbridge and Olivander). The battle ends with Voldemort "killing" Harry, Neville killing Nagini, the centaurs attacking the death eaters and Harry killing Voldemort.
