In the midst of their grief Cadogan House finds itself in the grip of the GP, humans protesting and a new Mayor determined the put the vamps in their place while shutting down the Ombuds office. When suddenly the lake and river turns black, then the sky turns blood red and Merits having dreams of Ethan that seem to be prophecies of further catastrophies.
Her best friend is busy studying for her magic exams and her new partner Jonah wants to be more than partners.
Meanwhile the old Mayor seems to be sitting back and watching everything go to hell.
