Lindsey Tonks appears to be a normal, almost invisible Hogwarts student, but underneath her is someone far from normal. What the world doesn't know is that Lindsey is the daughter of two well-known imprisoned Death Eaters, and has an identity she must hide from the world. Underneath Lindsey is a girl named Lyra Lestrange, a girl who is meant to be a secret forever. But will it last forever?

Part Four Synopsis:
It's the summer after Albus Dumbledore's death, and the whole world is falling to Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Broken-hearted Lyra, unable to return to Hogwarts, must go into hiding with her family. It doesn't last long, and eventually Lyra is faced with a choice: join or die. Lyra's decision comes with many surprises, including a new ally who follows her to the final battle of good versus evil. While Lyra's path may seem clear, she finds herself torn between two sides for the final time, and in the end, despite tragedy and loss, Lyra accomplishes the impossible...which defies all of the agreements she and her family ever made.
Three years later, the fic has been completely finished! Enjoy reading it without having to wait for new chapters. Thanks to those who patiently waited and faithfully reviewed!
I think you should know that I've now stayed up for the better part of 5 hours to finish reading your work on this particular piece--it's now 3:30 AM and I've just created an account with this site for the sole purpose of telling you that I'm mildly obsessed with the idea of Bellatrix having a child. Though I think you captured the essence of both Bella and the Dark Lord--not a simple feat, by any account--I doubt that the pair of them would take so kindly to Lestrange offspring. I'm hoping that there will be more Voldemort-Lyra interplay in the future. Perhaps I can hold out hope that you'll dramatize a bit of that temper of his?
In short, you're a fabulous writer. JKR would be pleased with your efforts.
Wow, thanks! Glad you like it so much :) Unfortunately there's really no Voldemort-Lyra interaction in the rest of the story, but I hope you enjoy the upcoming end chapters anyway! Thanks for the review.
