Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince  - J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré

The further I read into the series the more impressed I am with Rowling's world-building skills. Either she had it all plotted out from the start, or she's a master of improvising with what she left for herself in the earlier books, but either one demonstrates some serious ability as an author.
