WHO WERE THEY BEFORE THEY WERE THE MARAUDERS?
The year is 1971. With the Dark Lord Voldemort rising to power, James Potter's world is quickly becoming dangerous. During their first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, James and his friends will become entangled in a race against the Dark Lord to find an ancient artifact said to be hidden within the castle -- an artifact which, in the wrong hands, could spell utter ruin for the civilized wizarding world. Meet the marauders before they were the marauders, and join them as they make choices that will impact many others for years to come, including a small, lonely boy living in a cupboard beneath the stairs.
How did James meet Sirius, Remus and Peter? What was Hogwarts like in the 1970s? What mischief earned James his first detention? Join James and the gang as they begin their journey as students, marauders, and best friends in James Potter and the Bolt of Ages.
