Book Description

Sept. 28 2010
SOULS OF TERROR is a fast-paced, well-researched thriller with fascinating characters whose lives become strangely entwined as they unravel a frightening mystery. The surprising climax will leave you forever questioning the thin line between fact and fiction. In the beginning . . .

A brilliant university student is brutally killed in New York as a young boy from an Oregon private school is whisked off to Switzerland. What is the connection and why is it so important to millions of people? Chris Thompson is ridden with guilt while searching for his son. Is young Michael the key to a deeply spiritual and terrifying mission?

Michael's attractive aunt Kate has a penchant for profanity and martial arts . . . and carries a heavy secret from her past. Dr. Paul Sung is an atheist and authority on the history of the New Age movement. His unfulfilling life in academia is about to change. Detective Mark Julian needs to solve a string of gruesome New York murders, so why was he sent to Europe?

Karl Heisman and his Group of Forty-Eight are a covert sub-group of a spiritual movement known as Anthroposophy. Does their strange karma include links to Freemasonry and the dawning of a New Age? Are they racist terrorists or is there a method to their madness? And who was Rudolf Steiner?

4.0 out of 5 stars thrill ride March 20 2011
I read this book in only a few days because it grabbed my mind and wouldn't let go! From the terrifying first page I wanted to know what the heck was happening. The full groundwork for an engaging mystery was laid by page 5 and the fast pace of the writing kept me completely engaged. I enjoyed the many different and unique characters in this book and I appreciate the fact that Anthony P. Norse writes with insight into men and women, and younger people and older people as well. In this book I enjoyed the action, the tension, the myriad questions, and mostly the fact that Norse explored a fascinating subject matter that I've never seen anyone else touch in such a courageous way.

1.0 out of 5 stars A weak novel Feb. 21 2011
By Angus Jenkinson - Published on
I was directed to this book as a possibly interesting novel in the tradition of Dan Brown on a theme I know well. Sadly it is just derivative, boring and silly: a bad novel. I don't get the other reviews at all.

I believe a definition of pornography is that the plot only exists to move the action from one sex scene to another. Well this is a pornography of diatribe - the author clearly has a bugbear and writes a story that moves from one unconvincing expose to another.

The author confuses sensationalism with gripping narrative. Lesbians, a mad doctor, a messiah figure and a supposed devil, a rape scene and weird murders all make their appearance.

In so many ways it strains credulity. A supposedly brilliant leader explains part of a deeply secret plot to a couple of visitors he does not know because it helps the storyline. We get a whole page of arcane quotes (regularly repeated), while a plot to control a Chinese nuclear reactor is covered in a paragraph. And the characters are unconvincing and follow neither police procedures nor realistic human behaviour.

The Da Vinci Code was of course a fair amount of fictional nonsense but it was spiced by some interesting curiosities and it was written as a mystery with a smart guy solving riddles that engaged readers. There are no riddles here - just a series of supposed revelations dumped in the reader's lap. Ranting is not a good recipe for exciting fiction. Cyphers do not replace characters.

A waste of time.

Very readable and gripping. Nice how the quotes of Steiner were woven into the narrative. Giving an insight to how families can be affected by controlling spiritualist groups, the story shows a hidden underside of international intrigue. I think the book will get broad appeal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Souls of Terror - a work of fiction by Anthony Norse March 12 2011
By SlowReader - Published on
Souls of Terror, a stimulating story that slices open Anthroposophy to display the frightening essence of its cult nature, is a work of fiction by Anthony Norse.
The author uses the inwardness and secrecy of Anthroposophy founded by Rudolf Steiner in the early part of the 20th century as the backdrop of the story. Mr. Norse maintains a balance throughout by not letting the backdrop capture the story line. While achieving its purpose, the sense of balance imparts credence that this is not another modern day conspiracy theory.
Mr. Norse's protagonists rise to the occasion pursuing unforeseen and changing directions as they hunt the various locations trying to make sense of elusive antagonists. There is an increasingly urgency of will-they-catch-him-before-he-kills-more-people. However, it is the three dimensional characteristics that Mr. Norse has assigned the "bad guys" that helps to create a believable story. It is sufficient to say there are "bad guys" and then there are "really bad guys" the difference is Mr. Norse's villains are the ones history substantiates.
Mark Twain penned the following," Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't." Read the book and draw your own conclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Illuminating Jan. 31 2011
By Lapwing - Published on
Souls of Terror makes for a terrifying and illuminating thriller, I could not put it down.

This book reads like the best kind of screenplay, with a real visual bite. As someone who has had experience of living amongst followers of Rudolf Steiner there are parts of the book which ring exceptionally true. Most people who follow the teachings of Steiner (Anthroposphists) are on the whole kind gentle people until that is, you challenge them...

Highly recommended.

Excellent book! Found this by chance and could not put it down. I have heard of Rudolph Steiner but never realized what a nut he was. Needless to say, this action packed story caused me to do my own research on Steiner. Looking forward to a follow up already!
