Second Demi-Monde title due soon

The second volume in Rod Rees’ Demi-Monde quartet, Spring, will be available in hardcover in January 2012 from Jo Fletcher Books.

Spring continues the story of Vanka, Ella, Burlesque et al as they fight the forces of evil in the artificial environment that is the Demi-Monde, battling against such villains as Heydrich and Robespierre. Having escaped from the FourthRight, our heroes are in another sector, one that includes Paris and Venice – along with a range of new characters.

Rees plays merrily with terminology (FourthRight, CitiZen, ImPuritanism); he creates a rollercoaster of a ride; and it’s easy to become sucked into the world of Demi-Monde.
