    schema:reviewBody ""Ever since the Quantum Bomb of 2015 things have been different; the dimensions have fused and suddenly our world is accessible to elves, demons, ghosts and elementals ... and their worlds are open to us. Special Agent Lila Black has been different too: tortured and magic-scarred by elves, re-built by humans into a half-robot, part-AI, nuclear-fuelled walking arsenal, and carrying the essence of a dead elven necromancer in her chest, sometimes she has trouble figuring out who she really is. And that was before she got a half-elf, half-demon international rock-star boyfriend." "So a mission to Hell is exactly what she needs." "The heart of art, of pleasure, sensuality and politics, Demonia is glorious and terrible. It's the sort of place where Lila really shouldn't be surprised to be on the receiving end of a host of proposals both to duels and marriage and an assassination attempt, but it seems Demonia might be even more complicated than Lila thought."--BOOK JACKET." ;
