Gather, Darkness!

By Fritz Leiber

Rating: 4 stars

A scientific elite has seized absolute power through religion and lives in luxury while the populace lives in a second dark age, knowing nothing about it. Brother Jarles is a renegade priest who believes that this is wrong and teams up with the New Witchcraft to bring down the system.

I quite enjoyed this book, as long you don’t think about it too carefully, when some of the plot holes become evident. Although it was written in the 1940s, it felt pretty modern with sufficiently general technology to not feel obsolete, not that the focus was on that, but rather on psychological manipulation. An enjoyable and fairly easy read.
