This synopsis report prepared by Karen Wright
Nita's parents send her to visit her aunt in Ireland to take a break from wizardry and her friend and partner Kit. Nita can't exactly explain to them that her wizardry follows her there too. Home to wizards for centuries, Ireland is more full of magic than America would be in years to come. It is there that Nita fears she and her companions will again face the evil of the death-creating Lone Power.
