Summary

A hugely compelling, dark, offbeat adventure from the best-selling author of Rotherweird.

The world has become a dangerous place. Despite the environmentalists' best efforts, the atmosphere has turned toxic, destroying almost all life—plants, animals and most of humanity, too.

Survivors live in domes protected by chitin shields, serving one or other of the two great companies, Lord Vane's Tempestas or Lord Sine's Genrich, with their very different visions for mankind's future. A long period of uneasy collaboration between them is about to end.

Far from these centres of power stands the Museum Dome, where persons unknown have assembled mankind's finest paintings and artefacts and installed a young man, Fogg, as its curator. Here he has laboured for three years without a single visitor and with only AIPT, his automated physical trainer, for company.

Then a single mysterious pill—a momenticon—appears in the museum and triggers a series of bewildering events, embroiling Fogg and his unexpected new companions in a desperate fight against the dark forces which threaten to overwhelm all that remains.

And time is running out.

Brilliant brilliant!

Another amazing creation, wonderfully drawn characters in brilliant worlds. Achingly sad, bizarre and witty in equal measure. If you liked the Rotherweird series you will love this. If you haven’t read them then I urge you to try this one anyway, it’s brilliant!

what's going on?

Absolutely no idea what's going on in this book.
Is it a dream? Virtual? Magic?
No clue.
How are people popping up in the most unlikely places? How did they get there so fast? How are they communicating in a world without phones or radio? Never explained.
The narrator is very good even if the story makes no sense.

This was my first venture into Andrew Caldecott’s work & I LOVED IT! I really got caught up with the story & characters but the ending came too soon, I need revenge! Please please can we have a sequel

Bravo Mr Caldecott

Where to start?

Typical of Andrew Caldecott's style and brilliantly so.

Where Rotherweird looks back in time, Momenticom fast forwards us into dystopian fantasy land.

Full of humour, sadness, heroes and wonderfully written characters .

Hooked from the out set, Caught out by the arrival of the ending.

So... we need the sequel.
