The effort was a team effort and everyone did their part and I am so grateful for the end product. Thank you Outskirts Press for believing in my dream and now my reality. The seed was planted and now it has sprouted and I must continue to water it.”

Meanwhile in Iraq, a young Muslim boy, Hassan al Hassan, tips off American soldiers as to the location of their kidnapped squad member, who is saved at the last minute, from beheading. As the boy grows older, his peaceful interpretation of Islam gives him many followers and he becomes a young Imam known as “The Boy Prophet.” However, militant supporters of Jihad continue in the world and Sternlight comes to grips with his strengths and weaknesses; and the realization that more battles will still follow.
