Cover Flap This is the fifth novel in the “Maya’s Aura” series. This naughty novel of magic and mayhem begins with Maya’s visit to her great grandmother who lives on an island in Boston Bay. She gives Maya some family heirlooms, including a crystal pendant and an iron ring. The crystal causes her to dream. Not her dreams, but the dreams of the original owner, a woman from the late 1700’s. In order to find out more about these mystical heirlooms, Maya travels to Cambridge, England to track down her family’s heritage. While partying at the infamous Strawberry Faire, she makes friends with some local witchlets who have just come out of the broom closet. She goes with them to a Witches’ Sabbat in hopes of meeting more experienced witches who may know more about her heirlooms. She meets all sorts of witches at the Sabbat. Some skilled, some good, some fun, some fake, and some who are absolutely terrifying. About the Author Skye Smith is my pen name. My family convinced me not to use my real name because my stories are so critical of predator males. You'll understand and forgive me this as you fall in love with sweet Maya, my main character. For those of you who like stories about vampires, witches, and magic, you won’t be disappointed by my very different, more realistic take on it all. My vampires are parasites wearing business suits. My witches are healers ignored by the modern world. My magic is based on aura’s, and everyone has felt or seen an aura at least once in their lives.

“You can’t help getting caught up in the smartly-paced story…which is served up with lashings of steampunk relish.” —SFX (UK) “Rees makes the book work: the world he’s created is a psychopathic nightmare.” —The Guardian In the Demi-Monde, author Rod Rees has conjured up a terrifying virtual reality, a world dominated by history’s most ruthless and bloodthirsty psychopaths—from Holocaust architect Reinhard Heydrich to Torquemada, the Spanish Inquisition’s pitiless torturer, to Josef Stalin’s bloodthirsty right-hand man/monster, the infamous Beria. The Demi-Monde: Winter kicks off a brilliant, high concept series that blends science fiction and thriller, steampunk and dystopian vision. If Neil Gaiman, Neal Stephenson, James Rollins, and Clive Cussler participated in Suzanne Collins’s The Hunger Games, the result might be something akin to the dark and ingenious madness of Rees’s The Demi-Monde: Winter.
