Hogwarts, Britain's largest community of magical learning, is only decades old and already bitterly divided. England has fallen to a foreign king. And as the stone walls of Hogwarts grow ever higher, whispers say that Salazar Slytherin is plotting something... Two students from either side of a war are driven together by events that will change Britain, magical and non-magical, forever.
Once a week in their sixth year, a few of the members of Dumbledore's Army get together to play Dungeons & Dragons. Unfortunately, some of their romantic attachments are starting to have an effect on the game.
