Alexis Rune’s life has been turned upside down by the tragic death of her parents in a mysterious car accident involving the Unforgivable Curse. Instead of remaining in her beloved Japan amongst close relatives to help her through the pain and suffering, she is turned over to an unknown uncle as her Guardian. Now, Alexis must leave behind everything she knew and loved for the safety of her family.
The magical world in London is not at all what Alexis is used to back in Kyoto, and feels she has been thrown back in time. Her uncle, the stranger is more of a rebel than she first thought. Secretive and distant, Alexis must find out for herself what secrets her father had hidden from her and why her last name seems to make others flinch back in terror.
Struggling to find her identity in this new world, and questioning everything around her, Alexis Rune finds herself digging into much darker and more dangerous secrets at Hogwarts than she anticipated. Will she be able to survive her first year?
