It was twelve years ago. Twelve years ago that Harry's parents were betrayed to Lord Voldemort. That night, Sirius Black was convicted of killing thirteen people with a single curse, including his own friend, Peter Pettigrew. He has been in the wizard prison, Azkaban, ever since. He is known to be Lord Voldemort's "right hand man" and is the one to betray Lily and James Potter. No one has ever escaped Azkaban before. Except, now, Sirius Black. The Ministry and every one else is confused as to how Black did it. Though, he has left clues to where he's going. Harry's not safe, not even at Hogwarts. Join Harry as he and his friends go on a journey within the school's walls and end up finding the truth about what had happened twelve years ago, that night when his parents died and he became The-Boy-Who-Lived.
