The Lost Art Summary

The Lost Art by Simon Morden

A millennium after the formidable war machines of the User cultures devoured entire civilisations and rewrote planetary geography, Earth is in the grip of a perpetual Dark Age. Scientific endeavour is strongly discouraged, while remnant technology is locked away - hidden by a Church determined to prevent a new Armageddon.

This is the world to which Benzamir Michael Mahmood must return. A descendant of the tribes who fled the planet during those ages-old wars, he comes in pursuit of enemies from the far reaches of space. The technology he brings is wondrous beyond the imaginings of those he will meet, but can its potency match that of the Church's most closely guarded treasure?

For centuries it has lain dormant, buried in a lead-lined tomb deep beneath the flagstones of a remote Siberian monastery. But it is about to be unearthed, and the powers that will be unleashed may be beyond anyone's capacity to control. Even a man as extraordinary as Benzamir . . .

The Lost Art Reviews

Another fat book offering plenty of entertainment * Independent *
Morden combines science fiction and fantasy in a novel with a cracking pace that pitches savagery and bigotry against reason * TES *
A big book and a big read . . . Action-packed, the plot is revealed gradually, drawing the reader on, with good descriptions of a colourful world * The School Librarian *
Highly recommended as a summer read for all sci-fi fans and might inspire the younger ones to ask deeper-probing questions * thebookbag.co.uk *
There is no doubt that this novel is compelling. The various mysteries in the story combine to keep the reader turning the page and the world in which it is set is fascinating * writeaway.org.uk *
