I’ve been massively cheered up today by a copy of Rod Rees’ Demi-Monde: Summer, hurrah! If you’ve not encountered The Demi-Monde series yet, you’re missing a rare treat, and you should head over to The Demi-Monde.com to see what it’s all about.
I’m currently devouring the second one and should have that reviewed for you before I head off on my Christmas travels.
In the meantime, let me leave you with the deliciousness that is the 3rd volume in the series:
“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 iciously 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.”
