They carry a stigma and is generally much less efficient. And, of course, it is permanently disabled if you're excommunicated or if you're an atheist. All commerce and communication is done via the LINK, and if you're cut off, all you have is MouseNET, Mouse's ''free'' part of the LINK. No one can figure out where it's connected to the LINK [[spoiler: (it is essentially malware, stealing a bit of resources from every system on the LINK)]], which is the only reason it's still online. It is comparatively low bandwidth compared to the rest of the LINK, but Russia's entire economy runs via MouseNET.

The ''Archangel Protocol'' is the first in the Franchise/AngelLINK series by Lyda Morehouse. Set in a post World War III universe, where all countries except Russia have become theocracies, the series explores the Biblical Apocalypse though the lens of Science Fiction.

With access to the LINK, implanted virtual reality internet, being essential for employment, and access to if conditional on being a member of an established religion, Deidre McMannus had her life destroyed when she was excommunicated for a crime she didn't commit. And with angels suddenly appearing on the LINK, and a man named Michael on her doorstep, her life seems to be changing again...

The novel won the 2001 Shamus for best paperback original (a mystery award given by the Private Eye Writers of America), the Barnes & Noble Maiden Voyage Award for best debut science fiction, and was nominated for the Romantic Times Critic's Choice Award. She followed up Archangel Protocol with three more books in the Franchise/AngelLINK universe: Fallen Host (2002), Messiah Node (2003), and Apocalypse Array (2004). Apocalypse Array made the short list for the Philip K. Dick award.
