Overview

The sign.

When a meteorite falls from the sky, the destruction left in its wake lights a political fuse that could bring on Armageddon.

The prophet.

Just when the world could use a savior, the prophet Elijah appears. His search for a messiah leads him to the daughter of the archangel Michael.

The savior.

Meanwhile other messiah hopefuls spring up around the world -- including Page, an AI already tangled in webs of religion and deception. Yet as false shepherds lead the lambs to their doom, it may be up to Page's creator, the criminal mastermind known as Mouse, to save them all....

Editorial Reviews

Locus - Alyx Dellamonica
"Messiah Node's cool, ethereal fusion of cyberpunk and mythology fits perfectly with with action-adventure storytelling and a piercing examination of religious extremism."
The Alien Online - Vegar Holmen
"I'll give Lyda Morehouse a big thumbs-up for this book; Messiah Node is full of great characters, a great plot, and lots of action. The book has all the ingredients that exemplifies good modern science fiction; a blend of genres that will appeal to the wider public, and Morehouse is a writer that stands out in the crowd. This is a terrific blend of fresh ideas and an intriguing futuristic vision."
Booklist - Regina Schroeder
"Morehouse knows how to pace her story, weaving strands of plot and drawing the reader ever deeper into its fascinating but unnerving world. Although the third book in a tetralogy, this one includes enough backstory to stand solidly on its own. The final volume ought to be riveting, for apocalypse is on the horizon"

The world of the future is a very different place than the world we know now. All good citizens are linked via a virtual reality net that is more alive to some people than the actual world. Citizens must belong to a recognized religion and each religion has its own Inquisitors who have the power to operate in the secular world. Disenfranchised citizens have access to mouse.net; this custom made lower level link uses old hardware, cannibalized parts and throwaways that can be fixed.

A meteorite struck and destroyed the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, leading many to think that the end times are approaching. The angel Elijah has come during a Passover Seder for Amirah, the daughter of the Archangel Michael who refuses to let him have her. Morningstar has found his antichrist and must find someone to cure her of her affliction and the only possible person is Mouse, hacker extraordinare. As the world rushes towards its doom, only Mouse, criminal to the world order, has the power to stop events from reaching a crisis point.

Although Lyda Morehouse uses many religious symbols, this is not a theological work of science fiction but condemnations of runaway technology, and the integration of church and state. The religious symbols are representative of a world in control by extreme right wing fundamentalists as a result of a bomb that destroyed and changed much of the planet. MESSIAH NODE takes place in a world that is all too believable given the current state of events today. Ms. Morehouse is a talented powerhouse who writes on the cutting edge.

I was fortunate to read the 1st chapter in advance of publication! Here is the third novel in the incredible series started by Archangel Protocol and followed by Fallen Host. Lyda Morehouse has justified her winning the Barnes & Noble Maiden Voyage award for best debut novel and deservedly has won other awards on top of that!
