The gods of chaos cannot be trusted. Since battling her best friend, Darlena's grip on Red Magic has been shaky.  She heads to Scotland after the Winter Solstice in search of another Red Witch.   On a sightseeing excursion with girls from her hostel, Darlena arrives at The Vaults, a mysterious underground city beneath Edinburgh. But there is something there that make Darlena's instincts go haywire, as she lets loose a defensive burst of Red Magic, putting everyone around her in danger. If there was ever a time when Darlena needed the help of another Red witch, it was now. But beware the witch who wields Red Magic.
