Demons: Friend or Foe?

In my first novel, Beyond the Shadows, Michael Hawkins has the ability to call demons to his aid. This is a huge deal. Afterall, how many people do you know who have the capability to call a demon to help out in a fight?

However, Michael doesn’t use this ability just during a fight. He also uses it to train Cecelia “Celie” Moore. Demons make great sparring partners, especially if you don’t realize that’s what’s happening.

In SpellCast from Darkness, the demons come to the rescue again…

Here are some demon descriptions:

A demon had come.

Standing nearly seven feet tall, the demon was in a towering humanoid form. It had no hair and its wrinkled skin was gray like a decaying corpse. The eyes were burning red, lava-colored, while the ears were over-sized and pointed. A long tail, roughly 9 feet in length, whipped behind it, a razor-sharp spear-tip at the end of it, ready to slice through flesh and bone. The demon smiled, and multiple rows of needle-like teeth made their entrance to the party.


 To my right, the ground trembled and cracked open. Smoke rose from within, and a tremendously-sized demon crawled out from the underworld. It was a behemoth, four feet long at its widest point and eight feet tall, muscular and burnt orange in color. The demon bore four gray-colored horns on its head and four glowing yellow eyes – two of each on either side of its face.  Its teeth were like miniature daggers in its mouth, split into double rows, with four curved, extra-long ones descending from the upper jaw. In place of its hands were giant claws, similar to those of a sloth but extra sharp and dangerous. The demon’s chest was crisscrossed with scars and steel chains, covering it like oversized chainmail armor. At the base of its squat legs were wide, flat feet with eight toes.

How do you envision demons? Are they monstrous, or are they cute little devils?
