When the Knight Bus crashes through the darkness and screeches to a halt in front of him, it's the start of another far from ordinary year at Hogwarts for Harry Potter. Sirius Black, escaped mass-murderer and follower of Lord Voldemort, is on the run - and they say he is coming after Harry.

Sawyer did a wonderful job of integrating some established scientific facts into a sci-fi story. The interplay of depictions of real-life Canadian artifacts, imaginary scientific inventions, and unthinkable political development capture brings the reader right into the whirlpool of unfolding series of emotional events. The story provides an unusual angle to our understanding of right and wrong and allows to reexamine our own beliefs and perceptions.
