Slices of Time.
Taking place in 1994, Daimon ends up getting sucked into things he doesn't know or care about, and leaves knowing less then he started. Eli never really does give a definition to "the Bad", only hinting that it's here, whatever it is, he's hiding from it, and that this is just the beginning of a downhill turn for everyone.
Chapter One: The Feast
Alpena, Michigan isn't exactly Babylon. It's exactly, well, Alpena. But something very strange is going on with it's inhabitants. People are buying more, doing more, and over all eating more. The place almost reeks of evil, but maybe that's because the demons don't wash.

Chapter Six: The Prophets
Nature abhors a hero. For one thing, he violates the law of conservation of energy. For another, how can it be the survival of the fittest when the fittest keeps putting himself in situations where he is most likely to be creamed? - Solomon Short
"We will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream." - Martin Luther King
"There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest." - Elie Wiesel
Chapter Seven: The Long Night
And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book
written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.
And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? - Rev 5:1-2
And they sat clinging to each, waiting out the Long Night....
Chapter Eight: Judgment
The soul who sins is the one who will die. The son will not share the guilt of the father, nor will the father share the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous man will be credited to him, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against him.
"But if a wicked man turns away from all the sins he has committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, he will surely live; he will not die. None of the offenses he has committed will be remembered against him. Because of the righteous things he has done, he will live. Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked?" declares the Sovereign LORD. "Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?
"But if a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits sin and does the same detestable things the wicked man does, will he live? None of the righteous things he has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness he is guilty of and because of the sins he has committed, he will die.
"Yet you say, `The way of the Lord is not just.' Hear, O house of Israel: Is my way unjust? Is it not your ways that are unjust? If a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commits sin, he will die for it; because of the sin he has committed he will die. But if a wicked man turns away from the wickedness he has committed and does what is just and right, he will save his life. Because he considers all the offenses he has committed and turns away from them, he will surely live; he will not die." - Ezekiel 18:20-28
