Edward Ware’s Retirement In The House Of Lords:

General Lord Edward Ware at the end of World War 2 retired from His Majesty’s Armed Forces with the title of Lord of Ruweisat Ridge and an appointment to the House of Lords. He helped the British win the Battle of El Alamein in 1942. Therefore he has been appointed to a hereditary position in the House of Lords. When he is no longer meeting with Churchill to plan battles, Lord Edward Ware’s life is now consumed with social events and flashy ceremonial responsibilities. For one thing he has managed to have the title of Black Rod of the House of Lords forced upon him by his peers.

It is now his responsibility to be the monarch’s representative in the House of Lords. He summons the members of the House of Commons to Lords to hear the monarch’s speech. He is also the usher to the Order of the Garter. He organizes addresses to Parliament of visiting heads of state. He also organizes the state opening of Parliament and helps to run the House of Lords on an every day basis.

After a long career of spying, intrigue, and fighting battles, Edward’s life has run into a boring dead end. His wife, Dora, Lady Ware, tries to console him and find things for him to do in her father’s auto and tire business. But Edward is totally out of his element when they run into alarming news.

Churchill, in his second career as PM, summons Edward to his office. He shares with him a security report that has just come in from joint exercises that Americans and Brits are doing in the Bering Strait off the coast of Alaska. A boat was observed with bright lights and fizzling sparklers going off. When it saw the British and Americans it fled. They tried to follow it. They lost it.

“Russians?” Edward asked.

Churchill shrugged. “Anything is possible. But since you and your wife have never recovered your daughter from the Russians, I thought the assignment of researching it was up your alley.”

Edward is catapulted into the Far North. He finds situations beyond the human imagination that his better sense would say were impossible. People that he thought were dead suddenly appear again or seem to appear to meld with legends. But what are they doing? Carrying out the will of the mysterious, dark Russians who seem to be plotting to take over the world the way the Nazis were? Or is it something far worse?

Helga And Her German Band In Alaska:

At the end of the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest as depicted in the Cheops Books LLC historical thriller, Caesar’s Lost Legions, Arminius was triumphant. But his triumph lasted only five short years. Germanicus was back in 14AD to get his revenge.

Arminius and a small band of loyal followed took ship up the Elbe River and kept on going, putting out word that Arminius was dead so no one would try to follow him. The Viking-like warriors rowed from the North Sea upward to the Norwegian Sea, and onward to the Barents Sea and the Kara Sea on a seemingly endless journey to the East Siberian Sea and finally across the Bering Strait until they reached Alaska. They were not Eskimos and kept themselves and their little band apart in a secret enclave that was to stretch through the generations as the Alaska Germans kept to themselves.

Later in the nineteenth century the band of long-surviving Germans, exiles from Europe and civilization itself, were joined by another self-imposed exile, the Frankenstein monster escaped from Europe and Germany itself and followed to Alaska by his creator, Dr. Frankenstein.

So where would the villainess of the Edward Ware Thriller Series naturally decide to flee to after the Second War World left her a war criminal? Naturally she also fled to Alaska and joined Arminius and his band and Frankenstein and his monster. Dr. Frankenstein had the arts and sciences needed to beautify the scuffs and scratches that Helga had endured from her last conflict in the desert near Los Alamos, New Mexico with General Sir Edward Ware. She once again became an ageless beauty who could snare and lure people to their deaths.

So Helga and her band of German warriors and monster lay in wait for General Lord Edward Ware and his wife, Dora, Lady Ware, if they ever dared to come near the magical, nefarious world of the Land of the Midnight Sun.
