Book Description

4 July 2013 The Demi-Monde (Book 3)

Eight-thousand years ago the Deluge destroyed the empire of the Lilithi, setting the race of super-warriors known as the Grigori loose in the outside world. They have lain hidden until now when - thanks to the creation of the dystopian virtual reality that is the Demi-Monde - they at last stand ready to achieve mastery of the Real World - and to cull HumanKind in the Final Solution.

Three girls stand between them and victory: Norma Williams, trapped in the nightmare that is the Coven, the viciously misandric Sector of the Demi-Monde; Ella Thomas, enslaved by the spirit of Lilith-come-again; and Trixie Dashwood, consumed by her hatred for Heydrich and his evil ForthRight.

Product Description

Review

"Elegantly constructed, skillfully written, and absolutely impossible to stop reading. It ends on a beauty of a cliffhanger, too, pretty much guaranteeing that readers will be biting their nails until the sequel appears."" --Booklist" starred review of" The Demi-Monde: Winter"

From the Back Cover

The Demi-Monde is a virtual cyber-world, created to train soldiers in urban warfare, but its purpose is much, much darker... Norma Williams has discovered the terrible secret that lies behind its creation. If she is to save the Real World, she must not only escape the Forbidding City and the clutches of Empress Wu and the NoN, Mao ZeDong, but also destroy a terrible weapon that threatens the survival of the Demi-Monde - and all those living in it. But her enemies are arrayed against her, Lilith and Reinhard Heydrich are vying for ultimate power, and the only way their evil can be defeated is if the louche, dissolute fraudster Vanka Maykov can discover who he really is - and find the strength to destroy the woman he loves.

4.0 out of 5 stars The romp continues 20 Nov 2013
By Steve Benner TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Rod Rees' "Demi-Monde" series reaches its third part with "The Demi-Monde: Summer", with the bawdy happenings of the previous part, "The Demi-Monde: Spring", continuing pretty much unabated and the storylines established and set running in the previous volume now rushing headlong along their tracks. As with the earlier book, events build to a frenetic and cataclysmic final chapter, which is very much the jewel in the crown of the writing here -- a narrative tour de force clearly designed to manoeuvre everything into place for the ultimate denouement reserved for the last book in the series ("The Demi-Monde: Fall") whilst leaving readers chewing their nails and guessing how things are going to drop out in the interim right to the very last page.

In this penultimate volume of the series, Rod Rees feels to have settled down into a consistent (and persistently vulgar) writing style, designed, it seems, to make light of the story's often dark and violent -- and frequently sexually violent -- subject matter. There were times when I couldn't help feeling that he'd overdone things just a tad, with some of the darker scenes starting to border on the gratuitously graphic. That said, the book remains more consistently a continuation of its immediate predecessor than was the case for that volume itself. Whereas the earlier volume left me, at least, wondering if the author was entirely sure of the work's intended direction, this one leaves no such doubts. Indeed, by the end, it gives a glimpse of a much more complex grand plan having been in play all along. Or maybe I've just been slow?
