Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Peter Canova has written a trilogy entitled The First Souls, concerning the first awakening of spirit into materiality in the form of human consciousness. Pope Annalisa is the first book of the series. At the age of twenty-three, he first realized his abilities concerning intuitive medical readings, remote viewing, psychokinesis, and other psychic? phenomena. These abilities combined with several other talents qualified Peter to handle this project. He also has twenty-five years of voluminous research behind him in both mainstream and alternative religious studies, spiritual history, psychology, and quantum physics. Pope Annalisa was a combination of this research and information channeled in his own meditations. Peter is a cum laude graduate of Brandeis University where he majored in political science. He spent several years in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, a background that greatly contributed to the vivid detail of peoples and cultures portrayed in Pope Annalisa.

More About the Author

Peter Canova is a multi-award winning author, speaker, and inspirational visionary. His book, Pope Annalisa has won ten national and international book awards. Peter recently signed a deal with the production executives of the Oscar winning film Black Swan to co-produce a motion picture adaptation of his novel. The theme underlying Peter's body of work is that all people have the ability to transcend their ordinary consciousness and experience information from a higher source within themselves.

Peter conducted thirty-five years of research into ancient spiritual texts, quantum physics, and psychology to understand the startling psychic experiences that altered his life. He learned that modern science is only rediscovering the astonishing teachings of ancient spiritual traditions concerning the creation and the true nature of physical reality.

Peter's dynamic presentations have captivated many different interest groups on a variety of topics including artistic creativity, the holographic nature of our universe, the Mystery Schools, the lost teachings of Judeo- Christianity, Mary Magdalene and the early women of the Church, the Sacred Feminine, spiritual vs. Darwinian evolution, the Third Way between science and religion, the intelligent nature of light, and the wisdom in creation myths.

Peter has been the subject of numerous radio and TV interviews and has spoken at a variety of high profile events including the Global Alliance for Transformational Entertainment where he was the kick-off presenter for a roster of speakers including Eckhart Tolle, Jim Carrey, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Jean Houston, Edward James Olmos, and Fred Alan Wolf. He has been a featured speaker at the Conscious Living Expo, the New Living Expo, the Unity Church National Convention, and the Centers for Spiritual Living National Convention.

Peter's novel, Pope Annalisa (popeannalisa.com), is the first book in a trilogy called The First Souls. Pope Annalisa is a spiritual thriller about an African nun who becomes the first female pope. It has won nine prestigious awards including the Nautilus Gold Award for visionary fiction formerly bestowed on such authors as Eckhart Tolle, Deepak Chopra, and the Dalai Lama.

Choosing to write a novel rather than a scholarly or non-fiction work was a conscious choice to better connect with his readers and communicate profound information. Peter has said, "No work can be personally transformative unless it engages both the heart and the mind of the viewer. To be touched intellectually is to be affected; to be touched emotionally is to be moved. To be touched by both is to be raised to a new perception of being. Helping people achieve that is my goal in life."

Peter may be reached through his PR agent, Steve Allen Media (Tel: 661 255-8283) or by email media@steveallen.net).

I was captivated by the characters who are richly developed, captured by the unfoldment of events, and raised to new heights of spiritual understanding.

I was going to write a review for this book, but I ran across this article and I couldn't have said it any better than the reporter. She really nailed the delicate balance the author achieved between a page-turning thriller and a profound spiritual work.

Pope Annalisa

The year is 2025. The world is in turmoil politically, economically, and spiritually. Muslims are battling Christians for control of various continental locales, and the Catholic Church is facing a profound inner shift.

And then there is the matter of a nun, Sister Annalisa Basanjo. Of Muslim descent, the diminutive Catholic nun possesses remarkable and startling healing powers, causing those aware of her abilities to wonder whether she is an angel sent by God or an evil force to be destroyed.

So begins Pope Annalisa, book one of author Peter Canova's First Souls trilogy. This first volume recounts the separate but intertwined stories of myriad characters, including Sister Annalisa, Pope Clement XV, Cardinal Peter "Pietro" Roncalli, and Robert Avernis, American CIA liaison to the Vatican.

Tackling subjects as weighty and massive as religious clashes, spiritual healing, transcendent beliefs, and a possible End of Days scenario is never easy, but Canova makes it clear that he is well versed in that about which he so adeptly writes.

It was my fear that Pope Annalisa would prove dull or confusing, mired in too many details or historical facts. Instead, the book is a dramatic page-turner that beckons to be read cover-to-cover more than once.

Format: Paperback
Peter Canova is brilliant in his awesome presentation of a world in crisis, an outdated church that has never accepted the role of women in our spiritual journey and as the representation of Sophia as Wisdom and the Holy Spirit. Peter made it all so real that I felt uplifted during my day because I believed all he wrote about is indeed possible. Beyond the research and the personal experience that came through the pages I felt connected to a new sense of spirituality that I have believed is our real nature and true relationship to the God within each of us.
Thank you Peter for this wonderful work that is difficult to believe is your first, certainly not your last. This is a must read and hopefully a movie soon. This book has the power to change lives for the better.

Format: Hardcover
When I first picked up this book and browsed through its pages, it didn't appeal to me. Its premise and religious setup in Catholic hierarchy coupled with the implausibility of a female pope, let alone an African one, just put me off. However, upon learning of a local presentation by the author, I read through his popeannalisa.com website and decided to attend his lecture. I was much intrigued with his background and his well-researched and clear presentation of the fundamental and complex concepts of "quantum-gnosticsm." So I read his novel -- and I enjoyed it! Lots of intrigue and surprises and action and mysteries (later revealed) coupled with - surprise - a plausible scenario of how a female black pope could indeed happen. It's not as unbelievable as I first thought. Additionally, the message that begins to weave through and culminates at story end gives the human heart a ray of hope for the world. It's an intriguing read.

There are no two ways about it, Pope Annalisa is a page turner that captures you early on and never really lets go. A glorious surprise, Peter Canova is one heck of a gifted writer. His words sing and he brings the most outrageous scene to life in such a way that you can almost feel the hot breath of his characters on every page. His dialogue is engaging and does not shy away from weighty church doctrine being thoughtfully chewed over. This is a novel that comes at the right time when the Catholic Church is just beginning to unwind from rigid dogma and rethink the role of women in the church. Along comes Pope Annalisa and WHAM we have this new found Joan of Arc leading an army of change in a quietly powerful manner bringing new perspective to power in the manner of a Nelson Mandela/Mother Teresa. What makes this book so enjoyable and entertaining, is most chapters are 3-5 pages in length. Each new chapter whisked me along at breakneck speed from the jungles of Africa, to the oval office, to the halls of the Vatican, to the Middle East, and onto other exotic locations around the globe. The way this book is written, I kept visualizing each scene in my mind as if I was watching the movie, which I can't wait to see when it is released.

Pope Annalisa is a page turner with rich characters, historical insights and intricasies that make it not only plausible but gives you the feeling this is/can be happening. I am still reading the book but am losing myself in the characters and think about it even when I am not reading it. It is bound to be one of those books I hate to finish and I am looking forward to book 2 and 3.
