So, yeah, this won't be a long one.
As of right this minute, A Pius Stand, A Global Thriller, is published, marking the end of The Pius Trilogy. You can pick up a hard copy here on Createspace, the publisher's site, were I can get more money for what you pay ... though the shipping and handling sucks. You can click here, and find the paperback on Amazon.com-- I won't get as much cash, but it'd be easier on you, the reader, and your wallet.
Those of you who are into Kindle can find it right here, on Amazon.com, and start reading immediately. :)
What's the premise? you ask?
Well, how does this look to you?
A Pius Legacy asked the question: What happens when someone kidnaps the Pope? When you're Sean A.P. Ryan, security consultant, the answer is easy: get him back. And that rescue pissed off...everyone...and the entire United Nations declared war on the hundred-acre Vatican city.Just so we're perfectly clear, in case you've been waiting for the whole thing to come out before you read it, the trilogy goes like this
When the Pope is threatened by the international community, with no help in sight, what's a Pontiff to do? Run and hide? With offers coming from all over the world, it seems like the best course of action. With fifteen-thousand men from armies all over the world coming to end the Catholic Church, it's a threat not even the Pope's bodyguards could handle.
But it's not just about Vatican City. With the Church all over the world in peril, things are not as clear cut for Pope Pius XIII as one might think.
With the forces of darkness closing in, Pius, Sean, and the people they love must make a decision that will affect the lives of billions, and threaten all they hold dear. Do they leave the Vatican to their enemies, or stay, and face certain death?
Once more, this epic conclusion to The Pius Trilogy continues to mix real history with wholehearted adventure. With everything on the line, and no good outcome, the Pope and his champions must decide to either cut and run, or to make a final stand.
