Sorry assuming that the containment vessels on the American nuclear reactors were built to their minimum constriction standards a complete meltdown would NOT result in the release of radiation or radioactive materials. The reactors would be total losses but the would be no release. There are 99 active nuclear reactors in the USA assuming worst case you might get a 1%-2% containment failure so you'd have 2 instances of release. Ugly for those localities but nothing that could not be dealt with.

My brother was a nuclear plant operator for four years. Tons of borated ice are kept inside the containment vessel so that in the event of a power loss they drop onto the nuclear pile cooling the pile and soaking up neutrons. The plants have their own automatic back up power generation which are tested very frequently and they are not in a place they can be flooded or otherwise compromised.

Further - The level of sabotage required to cause those meltdowns would not be possible without detection. It is not as if the authorities would not be looking for it. Events prior would have elevated security at ALL power generation facilities not just the nukes. Voldy would need many thousands of operatives and require years of time not months to get this in place. That's only for the USA, add the rest of the world and it's simply not possible even with magic and mind control.

This type of security is known as security in depth. There is no single point of override and there are to many redundant watchers watching other watchers. Once security was heightened people acting differently would be noticed and caught. One plant or two - maybe. Hundreds or thousands of generation sites comprised for a single internal strike - simply not possible.

You have the same problem with his getting his hands on nuclear weapons. Layer upon layer of security with multiple redundant cross checks, and thats when there is no crises. Once security was heightened it would be a hundred times more difficult.

Lastly magic users might be immune to radiation, but many of the radioactive by products of the melt downs are among the most toxic substances known to man. They are chemically poisonous to the point that a few milligrams are fatal to a human in a matter of hours. Were it possible to create the world wide nuclear disaster you describe the magi would die alongside the muggles.

I've enjoyed your story so far, but this really exceeds my suspension of disbelief by orders of magnitude.

While the Wizards might be immune to. Radiation, their food supply won't be.

Stupid wizards!

great story so far and thanks for the small summery enjoyed every chapter
senawario chapter 1 . 4/23
Could you please add a warning to the summary about "holocaust-scale deaths". It was very disturbing and I stopped reading at that point.

I'm not criticising - it's your story and you can write how you want. But things like this deserve a warning.
