Six months after the end of Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Fate travels to Midchilda to stand trial, while Nanoha returns to the life of an ordinary girl. One day, however, she is attacked by a mysterious red knight who serves the Book of Darkness: a Lost Logia that must be filled with magic drained from mages' Linker Cores or the spirits of ordinary living beings before it kills its current owner, Hayate Yagami. As old friends reunite to deal with the new threat, they discover the truth behind the Book and its troubled history with the Time-Space Administrative Bureau.
