    So, to put it simply, this is a classic revenge story. Harry thinks that Sirius Black might be gunning for him, and decides to start flexing his magical muscles so that he might have a fair chance. And then he finds out the 'truth' about Sirius, and, with his new found skill with combative magic, his objectives shift from self defence to revenge.

    I think that the writing is great, I was hooked from the first chapter and I didn't notice any glaring errors, or any errors at all really. The story is relatively short as these things go, but it's punchy. There aren't any wasted words to be found.

    I think that Harry is characterised very well, and I quite like the friendship he develops with Cedric. I enjoyed the depiction of magical combat and theory it felt very real and vivid, but the author didn't get bogged down with the details.

    I won't spoil the ending, but all I'll say is that it's a tragedy in every sense of the word.
