The devil made a big mistake. Years ago he branded Shadow's father, Abaddon, a traitor, guilty of conspiring with the angels, and currently tortures him in the lowest circle of hell. The demon Shadow vows to rescue his father but has always wondered if the rumors were true. After all, his father did give him Michael the Archangel's short blade before he was dragged off by the devil's army.
The war between the six major demons rages on. Before they can attempt to save Shadow's father, Shadow, Leech, and Lilith must change the course of the battle and fight powerful demons and nephilim. Join Shadow, Leech, and Lilith as they acquire new powers, new allies, and new enemies. Middle Demons incorporates elements from the Bible, Dante's Inferno, mythology, and angelology/demonology into compelling dystopian fiction.
Shadow, Leech, and Lilith join forces with the angels to take on the growing nephilim threat on Earth. Shadow's father, Abaddon, continues to corrupt and destroy the world that both the angels and demons rely on. Changing circumstances reveal that the angels may not be the allies that Shadow had hoped they were and the nephilim may not be their enemies.

Pirates were eventually able to organize behind a captain who eventually would become like a governor with judicial power over all the pirates and control over settlements taken by the pirates in raids.
