This is week 4 of 4. You don't have to start at the very beginning of every book, but you might at least want to start at the beginning of the chapter with week 1 for the recap. PREVIOUSLY ON ISABOL TSEUNG VOICE NEWS: Isabol Tseung is a reporter for Voice News; the most stubborn, tenacious reporter the upstart Canadian based international news network has ever known. Focused on bringing the people the honest truth, without all the bullshit, Voice News does things a little differently from other news outlets. And Isabol is showing them the way. She’s uncovered stories of feral child gangs, and corrupt American presidents. She stands up to authoritative figures and is a voice for the victimized and powerless of the world. And when she received a text from an old university peer drawing her towards the story of a lifetime in Iraq, well, of course she was going to accept. With Australian philanthropist dude-bro Greg Beckett as her cameraman and translator, she bullied her editor in chief into buying two tickets onto the next flight into the Middle East. Arriving in Mosul, one of the cities most affected by the fight against ISIS, they made friends with the struggling locals including a man named Aram, and his grown son Ahaim. They also met a boy named Muhammed whose parents had died in the chaos. It wasn’t long before they were taken by the Iraqi government and given an exclusive interview with the prime minister. The man allowed Isabol to continue her investigations but with a warning that she wouldn’t like what she found. Touring the city with Aram, she and Greg uncovered a no-go zone and the freshly discarded corpses of civilians rounded up by the military. Greg was meaninglessly killed by the cruel Iraqi soldier Omar, and Isabol was taken prisoner and tortured. She would have died were she not rescued by a warrior woman named Alia, leader of a resistance fighter group that knew the now deceased Suzie, the university friend who had set Isabol on this mission in the first place. They escaped the city to a secret resistance base where a ceremony was taking place to honor the dead. During that ceremony, Aram and Ahaim were interrogated, Aram being mortally wounded before revealing the location of the resistance base. The military attacked the base during the ceremony, and Alia’s team (consisting of Hasan, Naeem, Yasheesh, and Ayaan) managed to hold them off, but they know their victory to be a hollow and temporary one. Their base was no longer a safe space for them. ----------------- My name is Andrew Geczy. My brand is 99% Geek found at 99geek.ca I'm a writer, writing monthly chapters of novels like episodes of TV shows, releasing them in 4 weekly parts (a teaser and three acts) on Sundays on my Patreon page at patreon.com/99geek At the end of the month the finished chapter is added to the PDFs attached at the bottom of every post. Finally, the finished books are self-published on Amazon. There's Urban Fantasy tales about a teenage girl turned into a vampire against her will, or a scorned lover investigating paranormal phenomena, or a journalist covering news and politics in the Middle East. There's a sci-fi story about people on a dying world trying to build a ship to a new one. There's a fantasy story about a fallen angel trying to stop the end of the world. And there's more coming. And it's all attached to the bottom of every post on the site in convenient PDF format readable on computers, tablets, ebook readers, and phones. I also have a Geeky Weekly Blog and host video game playthroughs and matchmaking streams on Twitch and eventually post them on my Youtube and Patreon pages. So stay tuned, and maybe subscribe. It's only a dollar and the support you show will go a very long way, I promise. There are also higher tiers. Give 5 dollars one month and you can name a character, or location, or suggest a thing you might want to see. Basically you get to give a noun, and then I promise to incorporate that noun into one of my stories somehow. Maybe not the same month you give the suggestion, but within one cycle of books guaranteed. No matter how crazy, you can't sabotage me. I promise. And you can keep giving nouns, for every month you pay at the 5 dollar tier. Or if you give 10 dollars, you don't get two nouns, but you can give a description. Describe the personality of your character, or the look of your location, or the importance of your item. For 10 dollars you get a noun and a description. You can also give a dollar towards supporting my efforts at Video Game streaming, or my weekly blog. If you don't want to subscribe on Patreon, you can also give at paypal.me/99geek and for a limited time the same rules about suggesting a noun apply there, you can write it below your very contribution. I'm as poor as it gets, living pay check to pay check (and sometimes starving). So I understand if you are too. I don't wanna take food out of your mouths. Your attention is enough.
