Book Release - UnHoly Wars Book One by Aaron Lim

The Real War on Terror

Press Release

Local author Aaron Lim has released the first book in a trilogy offering an alternative, fictional account of the lead up to the invasion of Iraq and the truth behind the war on terror.

UnHoly Wars Book One: Revelations examines the invasion of Iraq through the eyes of an out of work journalist Ryan Jackson, who is catapulted into Baghdad after a chance encounter with mysterious US Marine Corp Colonel.

But something far worse than al-Qaeda has awakened in Baghdad. Something ancient. Older than Islam or Christianity.

Something terrible enough to force elite US Delta Force soldiers and ruthless al-Qaeda terrorists to fight together, back to back.

In Iraq, Ryan Jackson will learn that superstition is merely a name the ignorant give to their ignorance. And there in the real war on terror, there are things worse than al-Qaeda or the Taliban.

Bridging the gap between military and horror/fantasy genres, UnHoly Wars Book One takes the reader from Auckland to Baghdad, weaving in alternative accounts of current events, including the recent earthquake in Christchurch.
