MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!!!!
The book opens up with the spying on Voldemort by muggle Frank Bryce. He manages to hear as far that Voldemort's deepest desire was to murder a boy named Harry Potter, whoever he was, and he had killed in the past with no remorse-before he was discovered and killed himself. The boy who was also spying, though unconsciously, and in his sleep, the very person who was target of Voldemort's murderous desires, was not discovered.
Harry became incredibly worried at this vision and that his lightning scar, mark of the first, but certainly far from last, attempt at slaughtering him by Voldemort. Was Voldemort growing stronger, as all signs seemed to indicate? Harry didn't dwell on it for about two days (spent by the Weasleys and watching the Quidditch World Cup). But at the end of that he was seriously alarmed and alert, because Voldemort's sign, the Dark Mark, had appeared again after thirteen years, after a riot which was heavily suspected of being made by the remainder of the Death Eaters (Voldemort's supporters). His fears weren't baseless either, as somebody had put his name into the Goblet of Fire against his will, and Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody, dulusional ex-Auror thought someone had done it to get him killed in the process.
Somebody has placed Harry Potter's name in the Goblet of Fire. As an underage wizard to play in the Triwizard Tournament, he is chosen as a champion and must participate in it. These stages may mean death and somebody wants Potter dead - and that person is within Hogwarts. This mystery and light romance book is the start of Voldemort's return. Find out more by digging yourself into the entire Harry Potter series!

Harry Potter as he wakes in the night with a throbbing pain in his scar. The next morning, Harry's Uncle Vernon receives a letter from the Weasleys asking Harry to join them at the Quidditch World Cup, and reluctantly agrees to let Harry go. Harry is brought to The Burrow the next day. Early the next morning, the Weasleys, Harry and Hermione head off to the Quidditch World Cup. They travel by Portkey, an object which wizards use to travel quickly to another linked destination. While traveling, they meet Cedric Diggory, another Hogwarts student. At their seat, Harry, Ron, and Hermione meet Winky, a house-elf who says she is saving a seat for her master, Bartemius 'Barty' Crouch. That night, after the game, a crowd of Death Eaters (followers of Voldemort) destroy the campground and torture its Muggle owners. Harry, Hermione and Ron escape by fleeing into the woods, where Harry discovers that his wand is missing. Moments later, someone fires Voldemort's symbol, the Dark Mark, using Harry's wand. Winky is found holding Harry's wand at the scene of the crime; Mr Crouch fires her as punishment for associating his name with the Dark Mark. Later at the Burrow, Cedric's father brings news that a man named Mad-Eye Moody attacked an intruder at his house, forcing Arthur to sort it out.

These champions compete in three tasks and they are given scores by the judges based on their performance
