Chloe never asked to become a member of the First Order. She didn't ask to join in the fight against Voldemort; to betray her mother's paralyzing fear of the magical world. She didn't ask to watch her friends die by their own hands. It only took standing in the wrong place, at the wrong time, to change history—and history still needed a martyr.
Nine years of peace have passed since the fall of Voldemort but, although their numbers might start off small, Death Eaters Rabastan Lestrange and Edmund Selwyn plot to rebuild to seek revenge against Harry Potter and the new Wizarding World by targeting its very heart; The International Confederation of Wizards.
The trials and tribulations of growing up during a war, and the losses faced, the friends made, and loves burned.
