Review

'State of the art... Discworld's savage noir cousin' Stephen Baxter.

'The world he's created is a psychopathic nightmare, while Ella, by contrast, is a touchingly vulnerable heroine whose quest is fraught with both physical and psychological dangers' Guardian.

'An amazingly quick and enjoyable read … and a beautifully designed cover' British Fantasy Society.

'Part Matrix, part Escape from New York, with a dash of Film Noir and a whole host of imagination. Beautifully written' Falcata Times.

'Explosively creative barely defines Ross Rees's The Demi-Monde: Winter. It blew me away' James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Devil Colony. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Experience the ultimate in virtual reality. The Demi-Monde is the most advanced computer simulation ever devised. Created to prepare soldiers for the nightmarish reality of urban warfare, it is a virtual world locked in eternal civil war. Its thirty million digital inhabitants are ruled by duplicates of some of history's cruellest tyrants: Reinhard Heydrich, the architect of the Holocaust; Beria, Stalin's arch executioner; Torquemada, the pitiless Inquisitor General; Robespierre, the face of the Reign of Terror. But something has gone badly wrong inside the Demi-Monde, and the US President's daughter has become trapped in this terrible world. It falls to eighteen-year-old Ella Thomas to rescue her, yet once Ella has entered the Demi-Monde she finds that everything is not as it seems, that its cyber-walls are struggling to contain the evil within and that the Real World is in more danger than anyone realises.
