[Reviews - 35] starstarstarstarhalf-starPrinter
Past Featured Story Summary: It's been year since Sunnydale disappeared in the Hellmouth and the Scooby Gang is enjoying the calm and quiet of their new headquarters in England. Bucolic bliss is upset when Buffy, Xander, Dawn, Giles and several Coven members start seeing things that can’t be – but Willow is sure her visions of Tara are anything but hallucinations.

In a fantastic journey that starts with a demon and ends with the impossible, the Scooby gang finds once again that death isn't always permanent and love doesn't end when life does.
