Rod Rees Launches 'The Demi-Monde'
ROD REES will be signing his debut novel The Demi-Monde: Winter at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Thursday 13th January 6 – 7pm.
A thrilling and action-packed adventure set in an utterly absorbing, deliriously imaginative world. The Demi-Monde is the most advanced simulation ever devised. Thirty million people ruled by history’s cruellest tyrants, locked in eternal civil conflict. The intention: to create the closest thing to Hell, and prepare soldiers for the nightmarish environment of war.
But something has gone badly wrong. Reinhard Heydrich – or at least a simulacrum resembling the Nazi monster – has kidnapped the President’s daughter from the Real-World and concealed her within the Demi-Monde, making it impossible for the program to be switched off. This achieved, he has cut off all contact with reality.
It falls to Ella Thomas, a young jazz singer, to infiltrate Heydrich’s virtual domain and rescue the missing girl. But once inside she will discover that everything in the Demi-Monde is not as it seems, and that the Real-World may be in more danger than everyone outside realises . . .
The Demi-Monde: Winter is the first novel by Rod Rees - and it will be followed by three further books in the series, Spring, Summer and Autumn.
To celebrate the publication of The Demi-Monde: Winter, the first ten customers at the signing will receive a signed, highly limited edition poster of characters from 'Demi Monde'.
