FALLEN HOST (4.5) returns readers to the LINK-dominated, angel-inhabited future society created by Lyda Morehouse. The Pope wants to know if Artificial Intelligences have souls, just in case one decides to become a priest. He assigns Emmaline, the sole female Inquisitor, to investigate the only two known A.I. constructsPage ibn Mouse and the Yakuza's Dragon of the West. The fallen angel Morningstar believes one of the A.I.s could be the Antichrist, and the way the archangels are behaving, he could be right. Top-notch innovative storytelling with intriguing characters and fast-paced action are the hallmarks of Ms. Morehouse's writing. Technology and religion convincingly form the backdrop of her futuristic society. (May, 352 pp., $6.99)
