So obviously you two have hacked the site and found book II! :-$
Yes, all of that (in various forms) happens; although things are actually a bit more complex and wide spread.
I refer you back to the battle, what were the Oorstemothians doing during the battle, other than shooting demons out of the sky?
In sum…there will be lots of freaking out going on by all parties.
Of cursory interest I should also mention, and the author has mentioned this before elsewhere…
The “real” book is Demons of Astlan it’s just broken up into multiple volumes…which means that since the last chapter was 79, the next chapter is 80 and that’s where Book II starts. There is no time gap. (or at least nothing more than between normal chapters)
