RED CARPET DAY
The World at War by
The second book in the exciting Four Horsemen Series. Join General Alexander Ludlow as he continues on his mission to save the world. At least that is what he thinks that Operation Dark Angel is all about. He is however starting to suspect that this mission is not all that it’s cracked up to be. The world is in complete chaos as major nations wage war on each other and the world is on the brink of World War III.The Group is secretly continuing Operation Dark Angel with much success. Unknown to the rest of the world they are the ones who are behind the strange and devastating attacks on Israel and around the world. What is it that they are really after when they are supposed to be bringing peace to an out of control world?
Italian President Nicolaitanes Balac is steadily gaining political power and recognition. The entire world is watching this one man and wondering if he will be the one to save them from the chaotic spiral that the world is headed towards. Is he really who he appears to be or is he something much more sinister? Can he save the world? Do we even want him to? Is this who mankind should rely on for help or will this be the worst mistake that mankind has ever made?
Chee Tsang, China’s Chief Executive, gathered the country’s military officials together. He was ready for payback. How dare Israel attack his beloved country? Beijing is now just a smoldering disaster zone. This fact alone both angered and saddened him.
General Baojia Chan stood nearby looking over intelligence and working out a war strategy in his head. First we will attack Israel with missiles then a surprise attack with our massive army.
“General, I want your opinion about something. What will we gain from this? How will this attack on Israel benefit the people of China?” Chee Tsang asked.
General Chan looked back at the papers he was reviewing before looking at Mr. Chee Tsang. “Well, I think that this will only work as long as we contain the element of surprise. We then enter the country from here and here,” Baojia said pointing at the military map.
“I see. But would we not have a greater advantage point from here and here,” Chee asked.
“I have planned for the Immediate Action Unit to drop forces in at those locations,” General Chan replied.
“But I thought that we primarily used them to protect the country from terrorism, riots, and the like. If we use them in our attack, won’t that leave the country defenseless?” Chee asked.
“Yes, the IAU is primarily used for that purpose but as they are extremely good at tactical maneuvers we will be using them to strengthen our military forces. The Snow Leopard Commando Unit will be protecting our country while the military is deployed,” Baojia replied.
“Very well then, how long before we can make this happen?” Chee asked.
“It is being done as we speak sir. In a matter of hours we will have our troops in the air,” Baojia replied.
General Chan has done well, although I wish that he had waited for my approval. Chee turned and faced General Chan. “You are doing a fine job. As I am not needed here I will be off taking care of more pressing issues. Do not disappoint me,” Chee said. He then turned and left the room.
General Chan turned back to his staff. “How much longer before the planes are loaded with the troops and equipment?” he asked.
“Sir, they will be ready for takeoff in approximately two and a half hours,” the young soldier replied.
“Excellent. Now I want you to launch the missiles at Israel. We will start by creating chaos and panic and then the real fun begins,” General Chan ordered.
“Yes sir,” the soldier replied. He then typed in the target locations, the order codes, and hit send.
And now Pamela has kindly allowed me to ask a few questions about her latest book.
Alberta: Operation Dark Angel left the world and us readers teetering on the brink of a hell inspired world war, so presumably as this was the start of a series we will travel further into this hell with the second?
Pamela: Unfortunately, yes we will journey further into a war; the beginning of World War III.
Alberta: Is this series specifically based on the apocalypse or generally on the fight between good and evil?
Pamela: While the apocalypse is a big part of the story, it is specifically based on the fight between good and evil.
Alberta: Now, this is marketed as a Christian book and you are a committed Christian, is your intended audience a Christian one or would you think this series could appeal to a wider audience?
Pamela: Although the book is marketed as Christian Fiction, it has appealed to a wider audience that has included those who are not Christian.
Alberta: The first book was very dark indeed the issues at stake dictated this – is this how you view the way the world is going?
Pamela: Unfortunately in our current world, there is a lot of darkness in it. A lot of bad things are happening on a daily basis. Things are going to get a lot worse whether we want to accept it or not~ as it was all stated in The Bible.
Alberta: What are the lessons, if any, you hope your readers would take away from the series?
Pamela: I hope that people will realize that our days are numbered and to live each day as fully as you can; to treat each other with love, compassion and kindness. That they will each decide for themselves to either start a personal relationship with God or to strengthen the relationship that they already have.
Alberta: You have many ideas for future work apart from this series, although where you find the time I am not sure:) will you be exploring new genres and themes, will they be stand alone or maybe another series for your readers to look forward to?
Pamela: Yes, I have two new series in the works for Young Adult (although I hope that they will appeal to others as well). I also have some standalone books that will be coming into the picture.
Alberta: Is there anything else you would like to add about this or future publications.
Pamela: While I know that this series is not for everybody as it touches on some topics that some people just aren’t ready to deal with. I hope that it is enjoyable to those who do read the series and that they will come back to read other books that I write.
Thank you very much, may I wish you all the best with The World at War.
