Deathly Hallows are featured in the seventh installment of the Harry Potter book series by JK Rowling. They are a trio of objects fabled to have been made by Death. Anyone who possess all three hallows is supposed to become the "Master of Death."

The Hallows are:

The Elder Wand: The most powerful wand in the world, nearly unbeatable. The Elder Wand will only be truly powerful if its current owner took it themselves, by force, from the previous owner. Contrary to popular belief, you do not have to kill the previous owner to win the wand's allegiance.

The Invisibility Cloak: This hallow has been duplicated and many cloaks now exist, but this one is special. It renders the wearer completely invisible. It is not hampered by spells and will never wear out over time. It also offers protection, which no other invisibility cloaks do.

The Resurrection Stone: A stone that will call the dead back into the world of the living. But they will not be truly like they were, they still belong to the world from which they came. Most who call them back are unsatisfied.

The symbol of the Deathly Hallows is a circle (symbolizing the stone), sliced down the middle with a line (symbolizing the wand), and surrounded by a triangle (symbolizing the cloak).

Harry Potter is the only one who is able to unite the hallows because he is the only one worthy. But he drops the stone, and puts away the wand, never to use them again.

"Harry Potter managed to unite all three Deathly Hallows! Now he is the Master of Death."

"I think the most useful of the Deathly Hallows is the Elder Wand."

Three items in the Harry Potter series: Harry Potter's invisibility cloak (passed on from the original creator), the Elder Wand (also known as the Wand of Destiny), and the Resurrection Stone. Supposedly the possessor of all three becomes master of death.
Lord Voldemort sought the Elder Wand, one of the Deathly Hallows, so he could never lose a duel.
Harry Potter slipped the invisibility cloak around him so that none could see him anymore.
Harry Potter turned the Resurrection Stone in his hand three times and then appeared his late parents, his godfather Sirius Black, and his friend/teacher Remus Lupin although they were not living nor completely ghost.

JK Rowling, having wrote six books about Harry Potter and his quest to defeat a really really really inbred evil guy, realised in the course of writing the seventh that she could not think any no way for Harry to kill a much older and much more powerful enemy. So she invented the Deathly Hallows.

(Although it turned out the really really really inbred evil guy was a pathetic weak pansy with constant PMS.)

The seventh and final book in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, and subsequently the worst of the Harry Potter novels. Seemingly a mere compilation of mediocre fan-fiction, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was both predictable and poorly written. It also appeared as if J.K. Rowling, although claiming to have planned out all seven novels, lost her outline for it and, therefore, the entire plot.
Even the book's TITLE 'Deathly Hallows' made worse an already bad plot, as it was completely redundant and had the weakest foreshadowing imaginable - it was as if J.K. Rowling, upon finishing the sixth book, had the idea of the Deathly Hallows and thought, 'It MUST go in! But how? I'll be able to sneak it in there somewhere.'
Nagini animates a corpse, Snape was in love with Lily (no shit), Aberforth was Dumbledore's brother (no shit), R.A.B was Regulus (oh, really?), the trio spent half the fucking book in a tent, Snape and Voldemort possess the power of flight, the 'Deathly Hallows' idea was completely superfluous, all the character deaths are mundane as all hell, Voldemort extends his niceties several times by prolonging his deadlines... the list goes on.

To read or otherwise intellectually devour something in a matter of hours, as opposed to the days or weeks that would normally be spent on such a task. The name comes from the rapid consumption of J.K. Rowling's eponymous 759-page book, after the reader has worked his way through the first 1,300 pages of the the Harry Potter series, and will now forsake all human needs and comforts to know if Snape will get his comeuppance.
"Good books are dangerous: I straight up "Deathly-Hallowed" the first two Hunger Games books in less than 30 hours this weekend."

Person 1: "Done! I just Deathly-Hallowed in eight hours!"
Person 2: "Seriously?! Wow, my sister and I both started at midnight —we even read aloud to each other while the other was in the shower— and still took 12 hours! I'm impressed!"
