[Article]-Daemon - A Novel

As promised, here is a review and some exclusive sample chapters of the novel, Daemon.

Permanent Link: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

EH-Net Exclusive
First 4 Chapters of Daemon


Enough technology to satisfy the hacker community, plenty of toys for the electronics buff but not too much of either to deter those merely interested in a fun read. Add in plenty of action to move the story along, great characters in which to sink your teeth and eye-opening views into the seedy cyber-underworld, and Daemon is poised to please the masses.

Donald C. Donzal, Editor-In-Chief
The Ethical Hacker Network


Read full review by using the permanent link above.


Daemon leaves a lot to be discussed. Please use this thread to discuss any of the topics from the book or thoughts on the novel itself.

Let the discussion begin,

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

I read all the free chapters this morning and now I have to buy the book.... I need to know what happens next. I like the story line so far and the tech Jargon is ok. Anyway I will defiantly buy this book.

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

Sounds like a good book. I've only had a chance to read the first chapter, but it definitely pulls in your attention.

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

Looks like a great read!  I just finished reading Echelon which kinda pulled me in just as this is doing to me now..  Just sucks that my library doesn't have Daemon.  :(

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

Will for sure have to make time to read the rest of this. I read all 4 chapters at work without realizing it. I just looked this book up on Yahoo and Ethical Hacker.net was 4 and 5 on the hit list. I typed in Daemon A novel and the 4th hit took me to the 4 chapters on here and 5 brought me straight back to this forum.

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

Forgot to mention the official site for the novel in the review. Really good use of flash, and a great link back to EH-Net using the voice of the daemon to introduce us. Too cool.  8)

Thanks Leinad and sorry for the oversight,

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

Awesome site. There are an additional 3 chapters on the site as well as some links. Talking about some of the devices and tech used in the book. Such as MRI scans being used as a lie detector. I have not seen it used to tell what someone says but it is the BEST lie detector to date. Also the sonic sound is a very useful riot control weapon being researched.  Excellent site to make you think about some things.

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

I'm also going to purchase Daemon this weekend along with another book called

"The Cuckoo's Egg: Tracking a Spy Through the Maze of Computer Espionage"

I heard that this book is a classic and that any security professional should have a chance to read this book.

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

I am about half way thought this book and all I can say is wow! This is a very well written book and the technical details are correct so far. I recommend this book to anyone in IT security, AI, Or is just a geek. Well worth the cash spent and if you decide to get this book make sure to use the link here on EH-Net.

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

My last update on this book. I finished the book but now I am left wanting more. There is got to be a sequel book coming soon as it kinda leaves you hanging at the end. Anyway I just want everyone here to know this book is well worth the price and just go buy it you will not be sorry.

Re: [Article]-Daemon - A Novel

Met Leinad at DefCon as he was researching a possible sequel. Seeing as how it took him 3.5 years to write this one, the second, if it happens at all, may be quite a ways away.

Very cool guy and I enjoyed hanging out in Vegas with him, Brian Wilson and a forth member of the party who shall remain nameless.  :-X
