The Lurking Evil is a series about a vicious demon lord planning to take over the human world, created by Ephiryz.(Note from the author - the story is still being developed,so that means there's still stuff that will change).

This page is not free to edit.


The world of humans and that of demons exist alongside each other, but are separated by a portal that also functions as a barrier; keeping humanity safe from their ruthless neighbors.
The demon world is slowly crumbling and its residents worry they're doomed to perish, though no responsibility is taken over the fact they themselves are to blame. Creatures with monstrous strength and powerful magic abilities made the land suffer irreparable abuse for generations, and it's insinuated their current home is not their first.

The demon lord, Frederic, concludes that expanding their domain is the only option and wishes to claim Earth as his own. He makes plans to cross barriers and invade the human world to make room for his struggling underlings and peers.

Violet -who's mother died at the hands of one the demons- and April are driven by their personal experiences and set on saving everyone. Though the mere humans prove to be an obstacle, when Violet ends up stuck inside the demon world and encounters one of Frederic's sons, humanity's future becomes less certain.

<I added a bit to the story, but an important thing that needs to be explained to make it all work is why Violet and April are such important characters. How are they able to take on powerful demons and why does humanity depend on these two women, especially if every country on Earth has trained army soldiers and war weapons to recruit?>
