By this time, the enemies include regular SB and FBI agents, rogue SB and FBI agents, Fallen angels, Heather's father, and probably some more that I have forgotten to mention. Each one wants Dante for his or her own particular reasons, and all of those reasons are extremely dangerous for Dante and his friends. Some want to kill him; others want to torture him; and several want to bind him to them and use his powers. All of the good guys and gals in this series are totally good. They may have a few minor flaws, but their hearts are pure. The villains, on the other hand, are absolutely bad to the core—no redeeming qualities whatsoever. In a sub-plot, Lucien has a bit of an misadventure in his homeland of Gehenna, where we meet some mythological Underworld figures, like Morningstar, Lilith, and Gabriel. In fact, Annie has her own experience with Morningstar that will affect her in a life-changing way.
