The old king struggled, lifting his hand again. The prince smiled at the motion and placed his mouth to the old man's ear, feeling the heat of his skin on his lips. As he spoke his voice changed, as if another man were there. “It has started, my father,” he whispered in a soft, evil hiss. “There is no turning back. You might as well lift your hand to stop the sunrise as to bring an end to this plan. Like your own death, it is inevitable. A new day is dawning, a day of secret alliances and powerful men, an age of dark miracles, dreadful rumors and a red, sinking moon, a day of a bright flash on the horizon that does not come from the sun. It will be an age of power and oppression far greater than has ever fallen on the earth. Even as I whisper to you, Father, even as my breath touches your ears, the great battle has started. The sun is setting on the frail world you have known. It is passing, and with its passing, the greater kingdom shall come.”
A world poised at the brink of a disastrous war is unaware of the evil forces that will stop at nothing to achieve their arms. But in the midst of turmoil an impending doom, some of the Father's most valiant servants are in place — sons and daughters who may have the power to change the course of history. The third volume in The Great and Terrible series, The Second Sun, is a fast-paced, thrilling, action-packed story of war and intrigue by nationally bestselling author Chris Stewart.

It's been a while since I've blown through a series of books so quickly. I started the 1st book less than a week ago, and finished this 3rd book last night. Brilliant. The character development was done exceptionally well (Brighton in particular). The end of this book takes you on a roller coaster thrill that will make you burn through the pages. As I've said in my other reviews, the story is highly plausible, based on credible current fact. While the spirit is felt throughout, the ending of this book is downright terrifying. Bring on
The Best Series

A must read for every reader. Chris Stewart makes this series so realistic just like the way it may have happened all the way through how it could happen. This series has opened my eyes to really being prepared for the unknown.

The Second Sun Vol. 3 The Great and Terrible by Chris Stewart This riveting series by Chris Stewart leaves you hanging for more. This end of days thriller gives you food for thought as I can see these things occurring. If you're not religious and into scriptures, you might have a hard time believing this speculative series. If you are religious, you'll devour this series, especially with so much happening like this series talks about. The Brighton Family are prepared for what's to come, Azadeh finds safe haven amidst chaos in her new home. With the whole world against the US toward the end of this vol., seeing chaotic events bringing the world as we know it to a halt, we can see how our world can change right before our very eyes. Most of the action is centered in the Middle East and in our nation's capitol, so if you like last days thrillers, this series is tailor-made for you.

This series is awesome! I recommend these to everyone I know and I wanted to say that this is my FAVORITE book of all of them (can't say about the 6th one yet because I haven't read it yet but this is the best out of the first 5) Chris Stewart has such a great writing style and his way of describing how the end of days happens is so real and you can easily see how it could happen anyday and it gives you the feeling of needing to be prepared. An excellent series!

This series offers one very real possibility of how our lives could instantly be turned upside down by the evils of the world, as they were after 9/11. Made me consider my year-supply much more thoughtfully!
