5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read. 4 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After a while searching the net to find a new series to read, I came accross a few historical recommendations for Lyda Morehouses Angel - lInk series. After a little consideration I downloaded the first one Angel-Protocal and really struggled to put it down. If you are bit of a tech head, with open mind on the use of religion as tool for the control of the human spirit, and appreciative of how faith can be abused... then you will love these books. Lyda's writing is fast paced, her angels are simultainiously other-worldly and mundane in the sense that makes them thoroughly exotic and human. so having finished angel protocal I immeadiatly down loaded Fallen host.... and yes I'm afraid I have to admit that I read most of it in 24 hours pretty much non stop, with only 5 hrs sleep... and I only stopped reading because I was having difficulty seeing the words. It has been a few years since I have been so enthralled with a book that I have done this so. 5 stars and Thanks to wizards tower press for re-publishing this series. I recommend giving these a go,...... allow yourself to be catapulted into a not so distant future of net addiction,(how frantic were you the last time you lost your phone ? i mean truthfully), human manipulation by so many powers beyond our control... human and god like, and delight in an alternative view of virgin birth, multiple messiah's, visiting angels and lovable devils and in Fallen host... do you really have to be human to have a soul, or does having a soul simply make you human.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Apocalyse Is Coming - Religion Runs the World - Scary Future 28 Dec 2002
By Sires - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I closed this book with a silent moment of thanks to the founders of the United States who insisted on the separation of church and state. In Lyda Morehouse's dark, dystopic future religion causes more harm than the devil and the only freedom is to be outside of the law one way or another.
Told from multiple view points, that of Morningstar (Satan); Emmaline, a papal Inquisitor; and Page, an artificial intelligence, the reader is swept into a complex world of hackers, mutant creatures, musicians and organized crime. There are so called smart cookies that trigger personal hologramic advertisements, superstar fusion polka bands and the fabulous Dragon of the East. Themes from pagan myths twine through Christian and Muslim theology.
The author, Lyda Morehouse has an interesting web site in which she says that her first book, Archangel Protocol was written and rewritten over a period of years, this book was written in a relatively short period of time, but I definitely felt that this book was the more demanding of the two, chock full of pleasurable moments and treasures for the reader to discover.
Oh, yeah, and it's real scary. I'ver redicated myself to that Separation of Church and State thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another intriguing book 18 Jun 2002
By Mfitz... - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just finished Fallen Host by Lyda Morehouse. This is her second novel and I'm not sure how I feel about it. It is as well writtin as the first and the ideas and plot are just as good, but I really disliked one of the three POV characters and it made it hard for me to relax into the book. I think you were supposed to like the woman, but I'm not sure. I found her abrasive, still that did not keep me from liking this book more than most.
How can you not get caught up in a book where the three main characters are - A self aware computer program who wants to make a pilgramage to mecca. -The devil, who just want God to admitt that making humans was a mistake. -And a female Catholic priest who was raised in a Chigago mob family (An interesting character even if I didn't like her as a person).
You don't see a plot like that everyday.
If you like a little something different in your SF you should love Morehouse. She makes you think, sets cliches on end and entertains all at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fallen Host Rises to Expectations 16 May 2002
By Rosemary - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lyda Morehouse's second book, FALLEN HOST, continues the story she began in ARCHANGEL PROTOCOL. What a story it is. Deftly weaving in enough information that you don't have to have read the first book (though why you wouldn't want to, I can't imagine), Ms. Morehouse takes us on a journey of possibilities.
The End Time is nearing and Morningstar, AKA the Devil, is determined to win this final battle. His search for the antichrist takes him from Manhattan to Tokyo and ultimately to Mecca. With a brief stopover in Hell.
Page, an artificial intelligence who dreams of Mecca, has his/her own struggle, coming to terms with existence in the absence of his/her `father'. He/she searches for atonement after betraying the man who wrote the program for the LINK-Angels.
Added to the mix is Emmaline the Inqusitor who is on a mission from the Pope to determine if the two artificial intelligences that exist in the world have souls. Some of her methods are unappreciated by the Vatican. She refuses to be pulled off the case and sets out on her own pilgrimage to find the truth.
The quests of these three characters intertwine, each reflecting the universal struggle of parent/child relations, making the right choices and finding one's role in the universe.
Utilizing in-depth research of the world's religions and today's technology, Ms. Morehouse has crafted a frighteningly believable forecast for Earth's future. Her characters, be they human, celestial or computer coded, are sympathetic, conflicted, and real.
FALLEN HOST will be flying off the bookshelves. If you're up for a fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable read, stake out a copy for yourself. And while you're at it, you might as well pick up a copy of ARCHANGEL PROTOCOL. Word has it there will be two more books in the series and you'll want the complete set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devils Advocate 20 Jun 2004
By Eric Nette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is simply amazing. It is easily my favorite book of all time(Up there with the other books of her series, War and Peace, and The Art of War, but her books are the top).
First off, its in the view point of 3 people(another genius move by lyda herself), Page(My favorite, a lost AI with nowhere to go and noone to pay attention to him, who throughout the novel wish's to spend more time with The Dragon of the East, another AI, and find himself), Morningstar(Ilbis himself, the devil, it is such an odd and interesting twist on the old classic horns and pitchfork character, by the end of the book you sympathize with him and see his point of view, which is shocking and beyond words of how it feels like you have finally opened your eyes), and Emmaline(a female inquisitor who seems to be losing her way, and struggles throughout the book against everyone and everything).
The book is simply an adventure in and of itself. I keep my copy in superb shape, I love it so. Page is an interesting and diverse character that changes over and over again throughout the novel, by the end you feel like he truly is a real person. The take on Morningstar is simply beyond words, the viewpoint of a devil who considers himself the most loyal of archangels.
And the Events and Messiah's that spring forth in this adventurous world simply spin out of control(realistically I might add), to a pinnacle point where you cannot imagine it all dying down, and then something bigger comes out, throwing everything into chaos. The ending is such an unexpected but loved event.
This is one of those books that while you love to travel with the characters and go off on an adventure with them, you don't want to, because then the story would end and you'd have to stop :( . I wish I could give this book more stars, as it truly is an amazing work of art. READ THIS BOOK! If you have read Archangel protocol and at least liked it a little bit, prepare to have your socks blown off by this one.
