Winter of 1979 brings with it an age of terror.
Diagon Alley is almost always deserted, propaganda fills the media, and people scurry away from shadows and quiet corners. Voldemort's on the rise with sneaky attacks in prominent places, and the Department of Law Enforcement is stretched thin trying to stop him.
With the Dark Lord preparing to land a heavy blow on the Wizarding World, will a covert operation by the Aurors be able to tip the scales in their favour?
Join James Potter and Sirius Black in Operation Basilisk to find out.

Strange events from the past affects the present in the life of Alexis Kanno; she knows little of the power running in her veins and even less of its potential.
Ambrosius Yaxley: aspiring Death Eater and lover of all things illicit. Edward Bulstrode: aspiring Auror and lover of books and knowledge.
They make an unlikely pair, the two of them. When their relationship fails, they go their separate ways, thinking it is the end. But when their paths cross in the First Wizarding War, on opposite sides of the conflict, they find themselves torn as duty meets desire.
The year is 1952, and Europe is a tense and dangerous place. In a shadowy world of spies, betrayal, and shifting alliances, powerful wizards from East and West battle for domination, while a rising dark lord may outwit them all.

Fifth year’s barely over, but the future is all everyone wants to talk about. Regulus is determined to outshine his brother. Walden’s planning a marriage that’ll never happen. Tibs wants to be a politician. Becoming the next Bellatrix Lestrange is my goal, and the only one that seems achievable. Yet with the Death Eaters falling like flies, the future looks bleaker than ever.
