With the help of her new friends, Clair devises a plan to get rid of Mia once and for all. She enlists the help of Lena Mayfair, who was a great friend to her mother and who has helped Clair herself learn to use her magickal powers to the best of her abilities.
Clair confronts Ian Marcellus, the vampire who was magickally bound to her mother, and reminds him of his promise to help her when she returned home. Ian is extremely weary of Clair's plan and even more weary of the new friends she has surrounded herself with.
Tensions increase as Clair's secrets slowly come to the surface, causing turmoil and heartache for all involved. Clair worries that the pressure may be too much for some of her friends, but with or without them, the plan will be executed, no matter what the cost.
