    F I recently found "The Demi-Monde: Winter" on my wife

    F
    I recently found "The Demi-Monde: Winter" on my wife's Nook. I practically couldn't put it down, and had it finished in only 3 days. When I finished it there was still a few weeks before this one was available for purchase. Immediately I pre-ordered "The Shadow Wars," and marked the calendar. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot and pace of the first book, and was thrilled that Rod Rees kept up that pace in this one, too.
    Despite a fair number of new characters introduced in this story, I feel the author gave just enough info to let you know why they are significant, without providing a lot of usless details. He also goes back and lets you know briefly what happened to a couple of the main players in the plot from the first book.
    This second installment is just as well written as the first, and continues to make you want to turn the next page and get more, more, more! Rod Rees does not fail to provide you with just enough suspense and surprises to keep you from guessing how thing are going to fall into place.
    I would say this is one of my favorite book series I've read in years.

    I searched for other titles from this author, and found a total of 5. This had me somewhat confused, so I emailed the author, fully expeecting to get someone from the publishing dept, but it turns out Rod Rees emailed me himself! From the limited communication I've had with him, he's a very nice person, he seemed happy to answer my questions, and let me know which books are available in the US. He said The Demi-Monde: Winter and The Shadow Wars are all we have here. In the UK are Winter, Spring and Summer. He also told me that I haven't missed anything by not having the UK editions, and he's just finished the final edit of Fall. I can't wait for the last two to get to me!

    W T Brilliant?

    Partway through the book moves from science fiction to mythology and my first instinct was to weep because of the recent assault on mythology, horror, and fantasy (I'm looking at you Stephenie Meyer and the endless terrible imitations) but then, after continuing to read, I remembered why this was my favorite genre before such abominations! In addition, the ensemble style of the book makes it impossible to put down. I am so sad I have to wait for the sequel!

    Brilliant!

    Love this author. This is the second book in the series of four.
    The scope of research alone boggles the mind. Funny,poetic,fast paced,thrill ride. Terrifying thought of a possible future resplendent of the past.
