Winner of the 2008 Quick Silver Quills Award for Best General Story.
The first book in the Alexandra Quick series.
The war against Voldemort never reached America, but all is not well there. When 11-year-old Alexandra Quick learns she is a witch, she is plunged into a world of prejudices, intrigue, and danger. Who wants Alexandra dead, and why?
This story is canon-compliant with the Harry Potter universe, but the characters and settings are all original. I've put a lot of work into envisioning a world as detailed as the original series; I hope you enjoy it.
Overall, a great chapter. A few points strike me as exaggerated or cliché though, such as in particular Alexandra just laughing at the screeching of brakes.
Summary: Alexandra Quick has discovered the dark secret at the heart of the Confederation, survived a visit to the Lands Beyond, and been given seven years to live. Now she's determined to cheat her fate and see justice done. Standing in her way is a vengeful conspiracy and secrets even she is not prepared for. She'll need the help of her friends and loved ones, but even that may not be enough against the power of the Stars Above.
This is book four of the Alexandra Quick series. For more information, see the Quickipedia .

This chapter is a masterpiece. I haven't liked all the chapters as much as this, but this one is really great. I think I'm going back to the beginning of the first book, reread it all, and submit reviews of what I like greatly and what not so much.
Author's Response: Thanks very much, I am glad you have enjoyed the books. And I do like concrit.
