Summary: When the Dursley household is destroyed during the summer, Harry is sent to leave with Severus Snape. He must learn what it means to trust an adult and other people to survive the summer. When Draco Malfoy joins them after his own mother’s death, Harry and him begin to create an unbreakable bond. This is slightly changed when Draco has temporary amnesia after a Death Eater attack. Harry shares all of the information about the Horcruxes with his new found family and even learns the price of self-sacrifice.
Opinion: The story premise was good and well-written, but the story itself was not very memorable. The relationship grew slowly enough to make them realistic, but there were not many moments where the characters were conflicted about anything, which made for a bland story. Ron’s reaction to Harry being friends with Draco and Snape was irrational and sudden, as was his reintroduction to the story. The Horcrux hunting seemed much less dramatic in this story as well, though the added information about Tom Riddle was interesting. There were a several major character deaths that happened that didn’t seem to affect the story all that much as well, which felt anti-climatic with their build-ups.
