In her essay Cyril Scott and a Hidden School: Towards the Peeling of an Onion (Theosophical History: Occasional Papers Vol.VII; ed. by James Santucci), theosophist Jean Overton Fuller writes that after the link with their Teacher -- named in the books as Christabel -- had died, Charles Broadbent and his wife Viola (pseudonyms for the author and his wife Rose) became fascinated with the astrology of David Anrias (nom de plume of Brian Ross).
    Anrias, who sets the author and his wife against Krishnamurti, is best known for his book Through the Eyes of the Masters. The fact that Anrias' book " the result of communications from the fifth astral plane and not from the Masters at all" (Benjamin Creme, Maitreya's Mission, Vol.II, p.554), may explain why there is no lack of Masters (i.e. glamour) in this final volume of The Initiate trilogy.
