Fallen Masters Hardcover – September 18, 2012
|New from||Used from|
“Compelling...poignant...Coming off like James Van Praagh tempered with the down-to-earth apeal of Caroline Myss, Edward offers an intriguing collection of anecodotes that may not convince the cynical but that can both comfort and fascinate the merely skeptical.” ―Publishers Weekly on One Last Time

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
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.

The classic good vs. evil, light vs. dark written/told in a very believable way. I think Mr. Edward's may have some real insight as to what is going on in the spiritual world.Published 5 months ago by Eugenia Y. Kemp
