Thomas Carter is on a mission to rid the city of soulless creatures that prey upon humans. Sadly, Thomas cannot distinguish the good from evil supernatural until he meets Julian Schaden, a vampire who becomes a mentor, in addition to a lover, to Thomas.

The Demon's Door has a rather slow-paced plot, illustrating very little demon fighting. The majority of the storyline consist of researching demons, along with Julian teaching Thomas the techniques of intimacy. The characters are somewhat interesting but not entirely engaging.

Thomas grew up on a farm sheltered from the outside world. His naïveté regarding the fundamentals of human life makes him appear mentally challenged.

Julian is a sociable man who enjoys the nightlife of gay bars as well as the supernatural community in the city. Over the years Julian has assisted demon hunters, including all of Thomas’s family. 

The dramatic ending of The Demon's Door is enjoyable.
