Book 4 – The Lost Knights – Coming in 2012

In Book 4, which picks up three years after the end of Book 3, Tom and Emily are getting ready for their first vacation since a major change occurred in their lives. Both have to be in Europe for business and decide to take some extra time to do some sightseeing. On the day they leave for Europe, one of the Order’s surveillance teams in France is captured while observing an arms deal, vanishing without a trace. Later, while walking alone in Paris, Tom finds himself in a war zone as immigrants and locals begin battling each other out of fear and mistrust. Tom begins investigating who provided arms to both sides of the battle and learns that someone is manipulating immigrants and their neighbors to bring about a conflict that could ignite war across Europe. Tom is captured and is taken to the heart of the organization that is supplying the arms. He learns that this organization has been manipulating conflicts across Europe for centuries for profit. Emily must rescue Tom and help stop this organization before Europe is plunged into a devastating war that cannot be won.

Book 5 – The Knight’s Crucible – Coming in 2012
In Book 5, which picks up one year after the end of Book 4, Tom, Emily, and other members of The Order are heading down to South America to participate in several ceremonies related to the Order’s presence expanding in the region. Unknown to them, some global banks in the Caribbean are working in partnership with rebels to topple a government and replace it with one that will provide a permanent safe haven for arms suppliers, terrorist training, mercenaries, and unrestricted banking services for terrorist and criminal organizations. Tom and Emily discover that an old enemy from Europe is also involved. Just before the members of The Order are to leave South America and return home, they find themselves trapped in the middle of a revolution – cut off from the US Embassy, the airport, and all communications with the outside world.

Book 6 – The Knights Victorious – Coming in 2013
In Book 6, which picks up immediately after the end of Book 5, Tom, Emily, and other members of The Order are trapped in the middle of a South American Revolution with the old enemy from Europe providing the military forces being used to overthrow the democratically-elected government. An unexpected opportunity arises for a bold attempt to rescue the leaders of the civilian government before the rebels can carry out their plans for a permanent transfer of power. The climax of the book occurs when the rebels face a counter offensive as the civilian government, together with some outside help, attempts to put down the revolution and restore freedom to the country. In the final showdown between The Order and the old enemy from Europe, only one can survive.
