Madame Punjai has obtained the Golden Amulet, which gives her the power over death, and she calls forth Death in order to kill young Carla Dennis whose beauty she hates. Yarko is asked by Sir Arthur Dennis to look into the matter and restore his daughter, if he can. Yarko tracks down Madame Punjai and takes her into the Land of Death, to show her what she has done. Defeating several demons, Yarko takes her to the Hall of Time, where her beauty is restored. Learning that that beauty will only last in death, she requests Death to take her life and restore Carla to life.
