I'm really excited to share the news that the FINAL book in the Caliphate trilogy will soon be available for purchase on Amazon! Over the next few weeks, I will share some excerpts from the book. Let's start with the text from the book's back cover. Next to coming up with a catchy, unique, and appropriate title, I find writing the cover text for a book the most difficult part of a project. How do you capture 400+ pages of a complex story in just a few paragraphs? It's not been easy for Entangled Hopes of Glory, but this is what I have come up with. I hope you find it intriguing!

Entangled Hopes of Glory is the high-paced climax to the Caliphate trilogy. In this third and final book of the series, Iran's desire for political, religious, and economic dominance in the Middle East brings them into direct military conflict with the Caliphate.

China has similar dreams of glory but on a more global scale. The only thing that stands in the way of them finally becoming the world's most powerful nation is the continued economic and military might of the United States of America. And when an IT specialist at the US Embassy in Tunis goes missing, a chain of events unfolds that leads China, the US, Iran, and the Caliphate to the brink of disaster while the world holds its breath.

The key characters from the first two books in the series return while several new characters make their debut appearance, including President Zhang of China, Ayatollah Parizad of Iran, and his intriguing wife, Roshanara.
