Back to Kandrakar is the ninth issue of Arc 7: New Power and the eighty-third overall issue of the W.I.T.C.H.comics.
Dark Mother attacked Heatherfield and the W.I.T.C.H. girls had to act fast to once again save their city. Thanks to the last of words of a dying Romur, the girls were able to follow the queen into Kandrakar, the place which she wanted to take out her vengeance. Upon witnessing the devastating power Dark Mother wields and the imprisoned council of Kandrakar, the girls realized they were not ready to face her power and unwillingly turned back – even though it hurt. They had to be patient and wait for the right movement to come back and unite their powers because, though their individual powers are strong, they were not yet united as a group.
