CHAPTER
1
 
 
New York
Dave Hampton had the looks of a star. With a full head of dark hair always perfectly coiffed, blue eyes, and well-chiseled features, he could have been the lead in a dramatic television show. He was, in fact, a television star, but not in a drama series. He had his own news, commentary, and talk show airing at six o’clock eastern time, Monday through Friday. From Maine to California, millions of Americans adjusted their schedules so they could watch the show live, and those who couldn’t watch it live recorded it.
Hampton specialized in controversy and conspiracy theories. There were few who were ambivalent about him—the public either loved him or hated him. “Innovative, brave, probing,” his supporters said. “A wacko, conspiracy nut-job,” his detractors said.
Today his guests had discussed such subjects as whether or not the United States was purposely not drilling for domestic oil in order to exhaust all the oil reserves of the rest of the world, to whether or not Errol Flynn was actually a Nazi spy.
The guests were gone now and the show was on a commercial break before the final segment, which Hampton called “Critical Update.”
“Back in one minute thirty seconds, Dave,” the director said, his voice audible in Dave’s ear plug.
“I don’t see my CU queued on the teleprompter,” Dave said.
“Sure it is,” the director said. “Untapped Oil Reserves.”
“That’s not the one I want. I changed it, remember? I want Sinister Shadow.”
“You mean you were serious about that?”
“If you don’t put it on the teleprompter, I’m going to try and wing it, and that will make it worse.”
“All right, all right,” the studio floor manager said. “Just a minute.”
Dave stared into the three teleprompters, which were just below the camera lenses. “I’m waiting.”
“Coming up—now,” the director said.
The story on the teleprompter changed, and Dave acknowledged, “Thanks.”
“We’re going to hear about this one, Dave. This is the kookiest of them all.”
“I wish you were right,” the studio floor manager said.
“Come on, you mean you actually believe this?”
“I’m afraid I do,” she said.
“Ten seconds, stand by.”
Dave nodded and looked at the camera. When the red light came on, he began to speak.
“Have you ever had one of those feelings that nag at you? You know what I’m talking about, a smell that is familiar but you just can’t place it, a voice, face, or event that is just on the other side of memory, or a tune that haunts you from your past?
“I’m having just such a sensation now. There is something up, something going on—and though I don’t know what it is, I know that it is mon-u-ment-al! It is of earth-shaking proportions, and when I say earth shaking, I’m not just engaging in hyperbole.
“Whatever this is—and for lack of a better word, I am going to call it a sinister shadow—it is hanging over our heads now like the fabled Sword of Damocles. Is this merely another one of Crazy Dave’s conspiracy theories?
“No, I’m not saying that there is a Nazi settlement on the moon, or there are aliens among us in high-ranking positions. I’m not saying that the Illuminati control all the governments of the world.
“I can’t be weaving a conspiracy out of this, because I don’t have enough of a grasp on this to formulate a hypothesis, or even to ask a question.
“Let me keep this very simple: Responsible and believable people, speaking off the record and with the assurance of anonymity, have told me of a disturbing paradigm, great and troubling movements that are taking place in religious, scientific, and political circles. I don’t know what it is—but I do know that it is making strange bedfellows, bringing about cooperation between the most disparate sectors of all human society. And while this cooperation would normally be considered a good thing, I am told these meetings are not the result of some universal brotherhood of man. This coming together is not anything born of altruism but rather a desperate seeking of the deliverance of humankind from this—sinister shadow.
“I feel as if all humanity is in a car, driving toward the edge of a cliff, headed toward one final catastrophic car accident. And the biggest problem is that while some of us can see the accident coming at us in slow motion, we can’t figure out how to put on the brakes. I don’t have the answers, but I can promise you that I am going to do my level best to find the truth and bring it to you. The one thing that I know in my heart is true is that something of epic proportions is coming toward us, and we soon might be faced with making some pretty important choices.
“Choices, ladies and gentlemen. Choices that might change the world.”
Hampton, in his signature sign-off, held his hand up, palm facing the camera. “From New York, this is Dave Hampton. Good night, America.”
As soon as he had delivered the sign-off, the telephones in the cable network studio began to ring off the hook, and within the hour, emails and tweets flooded into Dave’s own phone and swamped his website. Dave looked at the response and was both relieved and afraid. He had taken a gamble tonight and knew that the network would be breathing down his neck for what it would probably consider a bold stunt just for ratings.
But people were interested in—no, deeply concerned about—his report and felt they had to reach out to him to express their emotional responses to the news. He just wished he knew what he was going to tell them, for if his sources were correct, the truth was far worse than anything they could imagine.

More About the Author

John Edward has brought a fresh, honest and thought provoking attitude to the world of psychic phenomena. As a psychic medium, author and lecturer, he has, over the last twenty years, helped thousands with his uncanny ability to predict future events and communicate with those who have crossed over to the Other Side.

Since then, his clientele has ranged from young to old, student to professor, people of the clergy, law enforcement agencies and people from everyday life. His clients wait over two years to sit with him for private sessions, and although John is anxious to share his ability with those that need him, he is unwilling to compromise the quality of his work for the quantity that seek him out. He has captivated audiences worldwide.

On his internationally syndicated talk shows, Crossing Over with John Edward and John Edward Cross Country, he uses his unique abilities to connect people with loved ones who have passed on. Deeply compelling, often startling and occasionally humorous, John's down-to-earth approach has earned him a vast and loyal following.

Today, John is one of the country's foremost psychic mediums and author of the critically acclaimed New York Times best sellers One Last Time; What if God Were the Sun; Crossing Over: The Stories Behind the Stories, After Life: Answers from the Other Side, Final Beginnings, Practical Praying: Using the Rosary to Enhance Your Life and most recently Infinite Quest. John's domestic and international book sales are over 2.4 million to date.

John's broad appeal has led to numerous international tours of Australia and the UK and guest appearances on everything from CNN's Larry King Live to The Today Show as well as Oprah! He is a regularly featured guest on top rated morning radio shows, including New York's WPLJ and Los Angeles' KROQ. His many television appearances include Entertainment Tonight; Live with Regis & Kelly, The Early Show, The Crier Report, The Tony Danza Show, The View, The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, Fox and Friends, Maury, Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Wayne Brady Show, Dateline, ABC'S 20/20 and the critically acclaimed HBO Special, Life After Life. He also had a cameo appearance on NBC's Will and Grace.

John has been featured in articles in The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, Newsday, People, Entertainment Weekly and in the Associated Press, and was named as one of People Magazine's Most Intriguing People of the Year.

Born and raised on Long Island, NY, John exhibited psychic abilities from an extremely early age, and was deemed "special" by many in his family. The fact that he would uncannily know family history and events that took place prior to his birth solidified that fact. Because no fuss was made over these early experiences, he maintained as normal a childhood as possible. Since Psychic Phenomena was so accepted by his family, it was easy for his abilities to flourish. John embarked on developing his own abilities after an encounter with famed psychic Lydia Clar. Lydia made him aware of his abilities and told him his life's work would be teaching people about it. That mission has been channeled into his work as a medium which enables him to bring comfort and hope to people by reuniting them with those who they loved, lost...and crossed over.

John resides on Long Island, New York, with his wife Sandra their children Justin and Olivia and their two Bichon Frises, Jolie and Roxie.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a story of good versus evil set in today's real world, as well as the world inhabited by souls that have passed over from this world into the next.

I normally do not like books where the author starts off following many different people in different places and then throughout the book moves them closer and closer to each other until the final chapters when all the various subplots merge. This book is of that type, but the writing is so effective and the personalities so entertaining that I was able to look past my personal dislike for this technique.

I enjoyed this book and it made me think - two things that rarely come together in one novel. It is very well written and the plot well thought out. The author moves the characters at a fairly brisk pace through the plot and does not get bogged down in too many discussions of the nature of evil or the nature of good, or should I say God.

This book can be enjoyed by those of any religious affiliation, since the theme is more universal than specific to a singular belief structure.

I think the author has tapped into a level of universal consciousness in this novel which will appeal to most readers and will make this book a huge success.

First off this was a very good book, although the way that our author weaved it together is a little different than most, and that was a good thing. We begin by meeting the main characters of this read, and some lessar ones as well that together will round out this entire story. You know there will be supernatural happenings as from the start you will meet, Charlene St John, as a small child, who knows a tragedy has happened before anyone is told of it. She is also in this story as an adult who has the singing voice of an Angel and will be used greatly to help mankind. You meet other characters. We have Mama G, a psychic, Dave Hampton, a popular news man, Dawson, a well known author, Dr. Tyler Michaels, a surgeon who is all about himself,the President of the USA and his family, Religious leaders, and Rae, a tender nurse who plays an important role in many lives. That is just to name some, but not all of the characters in this novel. Each one brings a slice into the picture and the lives and gifting of each one play an important role in the outcome of the world, be it good or evil.

It appears that a large dark mass is making its way towards earth, and this one is different than anyone has ever seen before. It seems to have a life of its own, with an evil purpose, that of destroying mankind. No one knows what to do, how to stop its destructive path, until those from the other side make themselves known to bring mankind into the unity of love and goodness. Now this is not an easy job as the darkness from the other side is also at work, swaying men's hearts to bring pain and suffering to each other. We witness death and accidents, earthquakes, and plane crashes, evil carrying bombs and the innocent slather, yet there is the glimmer of light, the essence of hope building in mankind.

This is about the never ending battle between good and evil. I think that many of us populating the planet today have felt as if there has been a shift to the dark side. I know I have, Lying and cheating have become acceptable in a way that perplexes me. Rudeness abounds, as does flat out hatred and violence. Has it always been this way, and we just never realized before access to so much information on the internet? I sincerely don't think so.

I don't want to minimize the cruelties and ugliness that history tells us have occurred. Wars have always been a part of the human experience. The Holocaust, and what happened in North America where a land was ripped from the hands of the native people. Oh yes, evil has always been abundant wherever there were humans. It just seems to me that everyday evil has 'grown. It seems that empathy has diminished. This more than concernes me, it frightens me, more for my children's futures than my own.

This book portrays both a physical and metaphysical picture of the battle between good and evil. A battle fought here on the earthly plain as well as others. The forces of good and evil have made themselves more and more apparent to the characters and attempt to bring certain of them into the fight, to help tip the balance to their individual sides. It gives personality to some of the metaphysical players on each side.

This is a very good story. IT is a good story that is not as well told as it could be. I am a fan of this author, but more for his work as a medium than his work as a writer, I'm afraid. I have read every book he has written. The non-fiction books touched a chord with me that his fiction does not.

I am a spiritual person in general yet I had a real hard time finishing Fallen Masters. I think you need to be a fan of John Edward and his approach to the psychic realm in order to appreciate this work. When searching for words to describe the story line, melodramatic and cliché keep coming to mind. In short, the story was full of stereotypical characters and uninspiring concepts surrounding life and the afterlife. The pervasive and sophomoric messages centering on good vs. evil and man's gift of free choice were pretty repetitive after the first few hundred pages. By about page three hundred I started to feel preached at - the themes were that strong. I felt like "ok, ok I get it already."

There were other smaller details I was put off by as well. One main character, the President of the United States, was usually referred to POTUS. So instead of a person he was POTUS (always in caps of course). This resulted in sentences like "When POTUS finally realized..." or "when POTUS began to awake..." Then there was the strong willed black nurse with impeccable character who was always talking about her man "John" or "Johnny" - as in John Travolta - whom she had a big crush on. I'll admit these are small things, and perhaps the longer the book dragged out the less tolerant I became, but I found them annoying none the less.

Mr. Edward does have some interesting concepts and imagery sprinkled throughout the book, but they were lost in the nearly five hundred pages that is Fallen Masters. Perhaps if you are an avid fan of the type of television shows John Edwards is known for, or you have read and enjoyed some of his other books such as "Infinite Quest: Develop Your Psychic Intuition to Take Charge of Your Life", you might enjoy this book? But, as a standalone piece of fiction, I found it to be uninspiring.
