Overview

Mouse, the Egyptian hacker, is in jail following the events of Archangel Protocol. That leaves his AI, Page, struggling to survive. There is only one other sentient AI on the LINK, and she works for the Yakuza. The Pope is interested in discovering whether AIs have souls, and has sent his crack tech crime inquisitor after Page. Meanwhile Morningstar is busy looking for the Antichrist, and sentient beings without souls seem like a good bet. All of these stories come together in the person of a cello player from a massively popular Japanese thrash polka band. Page’s only hope might be that his creator can escape jail and rescue him, but Mouse hasn’t yet forgiven the AI for shopping him to the authorities. This fast-paced sequel to Archangel Protocol ramps up the stakes. It looks like the end of the world really is nigh.

Editorial Reviews

SF Site - Lisa Du Mond
Fallen Host is bullet-train fast and at least as dangerous. "Soldiers" from all sides who get in the way end up a crimson smear on the page. Not even those who manage to grab on escape unscathed. It's brutal, passionate, poignant, and thought-provoking -- just the startling artistry we should expect from Morehouse.
The Alien Online - Vegar Holmen
Once again the author manages to create a blend of science fiction, advanced technology, theological ideas, and romance which is well worth a read.
Romantic Times - Kelly Rae Cooper
Top-notch innovative storytelling with intriguing characters and fast-paced action are the hallmarks of Ms. Morehouse's writing

    intense, intelligent, and interesting

    In the future when war broke out, the scientists were so eager to win that they unleashed the Medusa Bomb, a weapon of mass destruction that turned whole cities and its in habitants into crystal. They forgot to put in a fail-safe so the mass of crystal is still spreading. People turned away from science and embraced religion once again. <P>The net is replaced by the Link, a sophisticated form of the web accessed by implants or external neural jewelry. To have access to the Link, one must be a citizen, but to be a citizen one must belong to a recognized religion. The pope had a dream involving Page, an AI who lives in the link and Emmaline the Inquisitor. On the strength of his dream, the pope charges Emmaline with the task of finding out if AIs have a soul. In the course of her investigation, she meets and is attracted to Morningstar, otherwise known as Satan, who wants to corrupt the AI for his own purposes. Morningstar, Emmaline and the Page are linked together in ways that become apparent as the world hurtles towards Armageddon. <P> FALLEN HOST is reminiscent of Huxley¿s Brave New World only the author uses the trappings of religion to show how those in authority repress the citizenry. The story line is intense, intelligent, and interesting. Lydia Morehouse is a very talented and creative writer who manages to use elements of theology, science fiction and sociology to construct a very believable world. <P>Harriet Klausner
