"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.

Review:

"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."--BookReporter (starred review)

"Strong characters, along with the clever interweaving of seemingly disparate plot threads, make this a standout selection for fans of high-tech sf and cyberfiction."--Library Journal.com (starred review)

"Explosively creative barely defines Rod Rees's The Demi-Monde Winter. It blew me away as the novel skated on the razor's edge between where we are today and where we're headed tomorrow. As much a cautionary tale as a gripping thriller cut from a digital cloth."--James Rollins, New York Times bestselling author of The Devil Colony

"Novel and fresh....An adventure tale wrapped in a computer simulation."--Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

"Superb....Such an inventive world is engrossing on its own, but the wildly unpredictable plot and characters make for plenty of surprises and twists."--Wichita Eagle

"Elegantly constructed, skillfully written, and absolutely impossible to stop reading."--Booklist (starred review)
