The Pipers calling and he doesnt grant extensions. President Noah Carrington is living on borrowed time. The fourth Blood Moon of the Tetrad has set and so has his future. He needs to stop the clock. Unfortunately, his only leverage; The Codex Vaticanus, has been intercepted and is now in the hands of The Coalition and theyre driving toward the end zone. With the game clock winding down, Noah drafts a team from the deepest bowels of Hell: The Humanals, a fearsome hybrid of animalistic Super Soldiers; Azazael, The leader of The Watchers, the Original Fallen angels; and Frank, the most powerful man in all of Rome. Together, they take the world field in the Super bowl of humanity, hoping to pull off a last second, satanic Hail Mary. Bear no responsibility for the past; but doing nothing makes you complicit in the present created by it. In 2021, following The Cleansing, Gwen Freeman fled the Old United States and crossed the Israeli border with Faith; the newborn daughter of her best friends, Caleb and Cristiana, tortured and killed at the hands of Noah Carrington. She vowed to never look back. Twenty-one years later, Faith, rebelling against a life of aunt-imposed isolation, unwittingly revives a past clearly marked DNR. With everything her aunt has taught her, shes about to learn the most frightening lesson of all, Its not paranoia if theyre really out to kill you. Noahs back...and theres a whole new breed of C-1.
Great life lessons and Interesting insights in Afghan culture. Akram comes from Afghanistan, but settled in Pakistan years ago during the first wave of refugees in the 1980s. In his struggle to make a living with his small corner shop, Akram notices some young boys playing cricket. Thoughts from the past flood his mind. He recalls the days when as a teen-ager he enjoyed football (soccer) and kite-flying, but how the passion for winning and hunger for revenge would utterly alter the course of his life. As much as he tries, he cant bury that memory. When a poor refugee family moves into their neighborhood, Akram soon faces new challenges. He only wants to help them, thinking this will give him some good sawab and honor, but life unravels before him. He wonders why his efforts for good deeds boomerang back on him with increasing problems. Worst of all, as much as he tries to bury his past, his memories haunt him. He cant understand why his own family never seems to be happy. While weddings are considered to be happy celebrations, why is the subsequent marriage experience so fraught with tension and disagreement? Thankfully, Baba Sharif, a long-time elderly friend and a great storyteller, guides Akram and his two young sons with helpful advice. Baba Sharif grew up as a traditional Persian wrestler and entertains Akrams sons with fascinating stories of wrestlers as well as his own experiences in the wrestling arena. But the stories are much more than entertainment. Baba Sharifs stories offer profound life lessons: - How can one fall and fail in life and yet get up again? - What do we mean with real respect? - What is true heroism all about? - Does revenge work? - How can one make up for the stains of the past? As Akram becomes more entangled with their new neighbors, yet another crisis shakes him to the core - his own son is in danger. With the stain from the past still too much for Akram to handle, a new passion for revenge flames up within him. Akram throws caution to the wind, ready to kill and forever remove his one threat in life. How will Baba Sharif respond to this?
