There was a philosopher, living in a castle
He knew many secrets, that was his downfall
Taken prisoner, for secrecy's sake
Promised to fire, to be burnt at the stake
But an order came, to free him right away
Coming from the prince, at the end of the day
Now that he escaped from that deathly fate,
Can you tell me to what these lines relate?

He knew many secrets, that was his downfall

Book 2: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Taken prisoner, for secrecy's sake

Book 3: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Can you tell me to what these lines relate?

Each line contains one of the words in the title of a HP novel, in chronological order.
