Summary: Snape and Draco find Harry almost at death’s door after a beating from the Dursleys, and he finds himself in a unique situation. Draco and him have a soul mate bond that is turning them into an endangered magical creature. After Harry and Draco (who have realized that they liked each other long before the introduction of the soul mate bond) have gone through their inheritance, they discover that they are magical beings called Ukatae and have four bodyguards following them around to help protect them in their new world. During this entire process, they discover that Dumbledore created Tom Riddle and was the direct cause of the Potters’ deaths, causing an unlikely alliance between the Dark and the Light.
Opinion: The reader is dumped into the middle of the story without any prelude. The storyline progresses similarly to what I would expect from several chapters in, right from the very beginning. It makes the story very hard to get into and follow. While some of the main questions are answered throughout, we do miss the character development quite a bit. Even when the Ukatae characters are introduced, they are hard to relate to. The thing that made the story harder to read is the fact that most events/emotions are immediately understood by everyone without any confusion, even the changing to the Ukatae was just taken as a given. Some of the relationships were well-developed, but there didn’t seem to be any lead-up.
