A hugely compelling, dark, offbeat adventure from the bestselling 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.

Reviews for Momenticon

A history-tragic-comedy all rolled into one, Rotherweird is intricate and crisp, witty and solemn: a book not unlike other books, but with special and dangerous properties. Line by line, silent and adroit, it opens a series of trap-doors in the reader's imagination * Hilary Mantel, two-time Man Booker prize winner, on Rotherweird * Baroque, Byzantine and beautiful - not to mention bold. An enthralling puzzle picture of a book * M.R. CAREY, author of the bestselling The Girl With All The Gifts, on ROTHERWEIRD * Compelling * THE GUARDIAN on ROTHERWEIRD * Magnificent * MIDNIGHT BLUE on WYNTERTYDE * Darkly hypnotic * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH on WYNTERTYDE * A triumphant final volume to what has been a constantly surprising piece of modern British fantasy. Part Gormenghast, part Monty Python, part mythology, part Terry Pratchett, a little bit steampunk . . . this series, its setting and its tone is totally unique and thoroughly enjoyable and should be celebrated as such * PILE BY THE BED on LOST ACRE * Caldecott's prose is very readable, and his world very inventive * SFX MAGAZINE *
