“The Demi-Monde is a computer-generated steampunk horror-pit of a virtual world, ruled by history’s choicest psychos.”
The latest volume in the series by Rod Rees, The Demi-Monde: Summer, is due out next week on Jo Fletcher Books (£20):
“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 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.”
