... I... I have no words for this. Be satisfied that your story has left a person who loves to write lengthy reviews speechless in admiration.

Mysterious OCs, mysterious prophetic dreams, mysterious warnings from Firenze, and suddenly the mysterious OC is no longer mysterious, he's a mary sue sent from the states to teach Harry all the things he needs to defeat the dark lord!
I guess I just have to keep reminding myself that this probably wasn't horribly cliche a decade ago.

... WOW! THIS IS EPIC! I think every time I try writing a story, this will flash in my head... I love the way you make Harry begin to distance himself successfully, and turn himself into a weapon... who doesn't know his full potential. One question: Why doesn't Harry just burn up, containing all that power? The whole part about Ethan and the handing over of his dagger to Harry.. does that have some significance? Some sort of epic battle that has huge repercussions?
Can't wait to read the next one! Oh wait, I don't have to!

It is really a shame that there are only around 250 reviews. I can't get over that! This is one of the best fan fictions I have EVER read and that is saying a lot! I stayed up till 1:00 in the morning to finish this! I could put it down! IT WAS FANTASTIC! Really amazing!

OK so I have been sitting here bored out of my mind with no books to read. SO I went to the Fanfic site and started reading this alternate version of the 6th Harry potter book. I honestly like this better than the original because its so much more real. Its raw and I love it. Instead of Harry getting by every time with a few bruises a single broken arm and loosing others around him, this version has him fighting for his life. You get in his head in much greater detail to really understand his pain. He gets hurt several times almost to the point of death which when you are fighting hundreds of people trying to kill you is bound to happen not just getting a few bruises. This story is AMAZING. I'm only on chapter 7 out of 31 but it really pulls you in. The new characters introduced are so well fit for the story. There's lots that is thrown in there that was never in the book but I honestly think it makes more sense and answers some of the questions I had about the book even if the answers are not what is have done an amazing job! I absolutely love this story. Thanks so very much for posting this for us all to read.

This is crazy. I have read all the book and know its not true. I know this is just a fanfic but I was actually crying as Dumbledore told every one harry is dead. Loving this so far.

Ended up being a pretty good read for part one. I could read your entries in Ginny's diary all day. Those are some of the most powerful passages of text in the entire story.
Well, now I'm going to have to see what happens to Harry next.

I think I finally figured out what you're doing with Harry:
Bipolar disorder is a condition in which people go back and forth between periods of a very good or irritable mood and depression. The "mood swings" between mania and depression can be very quick (From www ncbi nlm nih gov - just put in the dots).
Having a wife that's a bit bipolar (also known as Manic Depression), I can tell you it's not pretty. If Harry doesn't address his issues soon, or get some kind of help, he will fall into a place he will not be able to climb out of, and not even Ginny will be able to help him then.

This, to me, was for the most parts a very good chapter. Harry made good progress with his magic, and your section where Ginny is writing in her journal were very moving.
However (again), I'm confused how Harry can have almost unlimited power one minute, and he next be almost powerless against Voldemort - as in when he sent Harry the vision of killing that family. I would think that one of the first things Harry would do is find out how he can use his magic to protect his mind, or possible turn the tables on Voldemort when he tries to attach him.
He's done it in the past as we say with the battle of Hogsmead. Take the time to understand what you're doing when you're standing toe to toe with Voldemort AND PROTECT YOUR MIND!
I just realized that this is the first of a three part series (I know slow on my part, but I started reading this as someone recommended it to me), so I take it that things are going to be slow and painful for Harry.
Well, it is interesting enough to keep reading, so I'll see how else you can torture Harry and make his life a living H&!.
