Men become accustomed to poison by degrees - Victor Hugo
It is October 1949: Lycus Malfoy is dying, quarantined in his house alone but for his wife, Adelaide, who still hopes there is a miracle cure; Eileen Prince has vanished into a Muggle life, washing the dead and arranging flowers, away from the sneers she endured at school; Cygnus and Orion Black are at war with each other even as they bury their secrets six feet deep.
There is a murderer on the loose, shrouded in paranoia, and the old structures, things of blood and age and time, are starting to crumble.
And a ship arrives from Lübeck bringing Tom Riddle home.
Dominique Weasley is a historian hired by Beauxbatons Academy of Magic to research the school's history for its upcoming 800th anniversary celebrations. Along the way, she accidentally uncovers one of Western Europe's best-kept secrets: the truth about the foundation of Hogwarts.
Since the day she was born in a shower of sparks, surrounded by Roman candles and Catherine wheels, Roxanne Weasley has been getting into mischief.
These are her stories: polychromatic, dangerous, and impossible.
Translated from original runes by Hermione Granger. Includes additional notes by Albus Dumbledore.
