Lost in the Afterlife, Nolan Stillwater finds himself a pawn in the supernatural struggle for control of the Living World's future as demons use him to manipulate the past. He wouldn't help them at all, except for the sudden appearance of Casey, his one true love in life and one sure weakness in death. But Nolan's handlers are not the only ones vying for supremacy; three members of the Stillwater family carry fragments of the portal the dark forces are so anxious to reunite. Each with agendas of their own, the Stillwaters fight to avoid the fires of Hell. Meanwhile, the demons have put them on a collision course, looking to reassemble the portal, enter the Living World and lay waste to all Creation. The Fallen Appentice is the second book in the Deathkey Spiral and the sequel to Middle Damned.
