Summary: A different sort of alternate universe... It is a world under the thumb of an ancient emperor. Muggle society has been oppressed beyond recognition. Wizards rule over all, their only laws defined by power. This is the story of a rebellion, a family, a traitor, and the long road that leads home at last.
I was so excited to find this story again! I started reading it a few years ago, and during the transition into college, forgot where I had read this or even what the title was! I was just browsing for something to distract me from finals stress when I saw it and recognized the description! Almost four years after I first read it, I still love it and I hope you keep writing!
