The Azrael Initiative by K. Hanson Blog Tour with Guest Post & Giveaway @khansonbooks


Hello readers! I am back from my vacation sunburned and well rested. Today I welcome you to my stop during The Azrael Initiative blog tour.





Genre: Adult/New Adult Thriller
Release Date: March 2017


Summary:
Best friends Kayla Falk, an engineering student, and Olivia Bellamy, who is studying nursing, are nearing the end of their college career when terrorists attack their university. Through a combination of cleverness, bravery, and luck, the two manage to foil the deadly plot. A mysterious man from the United States government, Mr. Hightower, sees their potential and attempts to recruit Kayla and Olivia for a program to take on ISIS. They initially refuse, but another terrorist attack that strikes close to home pushes them to change their minds and join the Azrael Initiative.
After several months of hard training, the two women are dropped into Al-Raqqah, the capital of ISIS, in Syria. Once there, they must blend in with the locals as they strike from the shadows to kill ISIS leaders, destroy their facilities, and free captives. As Americans deep within enemy territory, they know that they will be killed if discovered. As women, they also know that they would suffer before death. Walking the line between vengeance and justice strains their relationship. As they work to resolve their differences, the symphony of brutality around them ultimately pushes them closer together and forges them into the warriors that they were meant to become.


Read the first three chapters.





Music Playlist
I didn’t really cultivate a specific playlist when writing The Azrael Initiative. However, I did create a station on Pandora for writing. It focused heavily on epic movie scores or similar music. In particular, music from the Bourne movies featured prominently, as well as music from Two Steps from Hell, who are great at making epic-sounding music. This helped me get into a good mood to write and often helped set the stage for specific scenes.









About the Author
K lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, where he works as a software developer. In his spare time, when he isn’t writing, he enjoys reading, working out, playing video games, and spending time with his wonderful fiancee, Bobbi. Some of his favorite authors are Tom Clancy, George R. R. Martin, and Sarah Maas.
