Synopsis[edit | edit source]
OLD MAGIC, NEW PROBLEM
The Hellmouth (a.k.a. Sunnydale, CA) has drawn vampires, witches, and other demons to its powerful vortex. Now it has also drawn the attention of an ancient set of Druids — allies in Buffy Summers' battle against the Undead.
Cloaked in Darkness, wrapped in mystery, the Druids descend on Sunnydale ready to perform new rituals to summon forth a new world order, free from the evil that shapes Buffy's nights.
But the Slayer's concerns are more immediate — someone is stalking her friends. Cordelia, Xander, and Oz — all are falling victim to this spell. And now it's up to Willow and Giles to find the cause, while Buffy stands between the Mouth of Hell and the New Dawn.
