This chapter introduces no new locations, as the first portion takes place in Samantha’s downtown Minneapolis apartment that was introduced in the Priestess chapter and the second portion takes place at the Loring Pasta Bar introduced in the Empress chapter. In the first portion Samantha conveys to Daria, her A.’.A.’. superior, what she has learned so far about the Guild. In the second portion she meets Michael for dinner after stopping by Magus Books.
