When Faith and Giles check up on a young Slayer named Courtney to find out why she bailed on her squad, they learn of a place called ‘Slayer Sanctuary’, located in the remote town of Hanselstadt. Deciding to investigate, Faith, Giles and Courtney set off by train, but when they arrive in the quiet mountain town they are surprised to find it surrounded by vampires, which are somehow prevented from entering. Welcomed by the town authorities, Giles meets Duncan Fillworthe, the only other surviving member of the Watcher’s Council, who has been recruiting Slayers to his cause. Giles and Faith immediately suspect a trap – and their suspicions are soon proved correct, as Hanselstadt contains a deadly secret that means death for Faith and Courtney…
