Consider a world with a finite number of souls available. The human race exceeds that limit and babies are born without a soul. They grow up with no conscience, killing anyone to get their way. They use sex as a weapon, sometimes beginning at a very early age. These soulless creatures become known as 'Sopaths'. This is the story of one man and his family and how they deal with this terrible problem. An interesting concept and well presented. BUT! This is definitely NOT a book for teenagers or the squeamish. If you have strong religious views, you will probably be disgusted with the book.
I have read most of Mr. Anthony's books and while I prefer his science fiction (the Cluster series) and his fantasy (Xanth novels), this was quite a change of pace. I'm not sorry I bought the book but I don't think I would buy another of this type. Very disturbing premise.
