"You can't help getting caught up in the smartly-paced story...which is served up with lashings of steampunk relish."
--SFX (UK)

"Rees makes the book work: the world he's created is a psychopathic nightmare."
--The Guardian

In the Demi-Monde, author Rod Rees has conjured up a terrifying virtual reality, a world dominated by history's most ruthless and bloodthirsty psychopaths--from Holocaust architect Reinhard Heydrich to Torquemada, the Spanish Inquisition's pitiless torturer, to Josef Stalin's bloodthirsty right-hand man/monster, the infamous Beria. The Demi-Monde: Winter kicks off a brilliant, high concept series that blends science fiction and thriller, steampunk and dystopian vision. If Neil Gaiman, Neal Stephenson, James Rollins, and Clive Cussler participated in Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games, the result might be something akin to the dark and ingenious madness of Rees's The Demi-Monde: Winter.
