When a powerful collector of the supernatural offers Sara a job, though, she finds herself called back to where it all began: New York City. If things seem too good to be true, however, it’s because they are. Looming over this new opportunity is the cold, hard fact that nothing lasts forever, and Sara’s tenure as Witchblade is almost at its end.
