Author’s Summary: Harry Potter is ignored and abandoned because his brother is the “Chosen One”. Instead of fading into oblivion, he is rescued by none other than Lord Voldemort himself. A couple years later, and the Dark Side has a new secret weapon: Hadrian “Harry” Riddle, heir to the Dark Lord. Part one of the Dark Prince Series. Years 1&2. COMPLETE.
My Thoughts: Dark Prince is really good! Overall, it’s probably my favorite fic in the trilogy. It’s really satisfying to read, and I think Voldemort is written really well. One thing I love is that this story does not shy away at all for portraying Voldemort as a murderous psychopath, and it also actually writes a plausible scenario in which Harry gets over that because he’s so glad that someone is paying attention to him, even if that someone is a Dark Lord. I also just think the plot is really fun. There is a surprisingly small amount of angst for a story with this tone and concept—a fact for which I will be eternally grateful—and there’s some surprisingly clever and funny moments. Overall, it’s just a really and enjoyable Dark!Harry story, and I recommend giving it a read.
