I bought the actual paperback bundle of these books for gifts. they were such a great hit I wish I could get them again in paperback. unfortunately with them only being offered in ebook form if is very hard to give as gifts. please bring them back in a paper back bundle.
This series had some interesting ideas that I enjoyed, but had I realized it was based on "conspiracy theories" I would have looked else where for reading material.
I will admit that the first book (the brothers) was hard to get through, but it was because I didn’t know what to expect and I didn’t understand. Now I see the wisdom of the book and truly is what makes this more than a fun story to read! All of the other books are very different than book one, but build on the foundation of book one, just like our lives. I became so hooked that I was always looking for time to read more and purchased a full set for my teenage kids and wife, so they could read them also. I would recommend this series to everyone. And unlike me, enjoy the short prequel (the Brothers), if you do, they rest will be truly fun and thought provoking.
Yes... I am comparing eating and reading these books. Gruuuubbbed on them. Chris allows your mind to think of the possibilities in the pre-existence and I believe a lot of what he is saying is real. Yes I know it's fiction, but I know he was inspired. These books helped me grow closer to God in so many ways. They really make you think how real the invisible war is; how real the devil is; and how real and important our choices are on earth as it relates to the Plan of Salvation.
This is the best series I have ever read. It has literally changed my life. I thank you for writing it! Every American should read this book! Thank you Chris Stewart for being the person to write this series!
These books are literally life changing. While I was reading book one I kept having the strongest feeling that a lot of what was written was ringing true to my spirit. It really opened up my eyes when I am being tempted that is probably one of the followers of Satan that actually knew me well in the pre-existence. I have talked about this with my children and hope it helps them to resist even more and not listen to those whisperings from Satan's evil hosts. Simply amazing books. They made me want to be a better person.
Riveting, thought provoking, inspiring! This COULD be our past, this COULD be our future. Though it is fiction, there is so much we can learn that can benefit our reality. I could not put it down, and highly recommend it to anyone who likes fast paced intrigue combined with faith promoting, insightful reading.
I've been so uplifted by the words Mr. Stewart brought to us in this set of books. He and the Spirit have motivated me as a sister to prepare for the worst but yet remember to listen to the voices and be a better server of Christ and his Church. I so totally enjoyed every part of these books, I was there throughout the enitire series. I hope there will be more to come. Chris Stewart you truly are a man of God. Thank you for putting many things in perspective and allowing God to use you as a tool. I feel as if I know you, a kindred spirit. God Bless you and your family.
Author lacks any real understanding of the middle east, in particularly Iran.
Just finished reading all 6 books. Good story. Good depiction of how evil works on us in mortality. The battle between good and evil is what we can't see, which has made me more aware. The last book felt rushed through a little bit. I wouldn't mind seeing a 7th book about what is happening 5 years later. Another great Chris Stewart book!
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll feel the love of the Creator, you'll gain insight into Heavenly Father's plan, and see what your part is in that plan. These books should be read by mothers and fathers and by church leaders, they should be read within the loosly organized book clubs, and even within structured book clubs. If I was still a teacher, I'd make it required reading. You need others to discuss it as you progress in the book. I fell in love with the families in the book, with the wonderful soldiers who gave their all to protect our constitution. Be prepared to sit with white knuckles, and to need to wake up and read in the middle of the night. Share it with your family, and then discuss it within the context of today's geopolitical realities...Chris Stewart had angels helping him write this book, and the editors and publishers knew they were taking a chance publishing it by Deseret, but after you read it you will know why. Now that I have completed this set I need some sequels, Chris! Thank you! sincerely, Beki Knott
If you like suspense this book is for you. If you wonder what it could have been like in our pre-mortal lives and how our fight against Satan and his armies effect us now! These stories made you think and wonder if that really is happening on the other side. These books are nail biters. I was sad to see it end. I think there could be another book if Chris Stewart put him mind to it. I would love to see it made into a mini series or movie!
I loved this series, I loaned it out to my two step sons and the one step sons girlfriend is reading them now. It really is a reminder of what do I need to do to be prepared. It also is a reminder that when we get those negative thoughts, to realize the source behind them. I really learned a lot from reading these books based on the authors knowledge from his experience. Also as I see world events and the corruption that is in our nation and others, I think about some of the people in these books.
I love to read, but usually I don't like to read something more than once. This series made such a powerful impact on me I want to read it again and again. I have told so many people about it. I think everyone would look at these last days with a new perspective. I know I did. It really made me think of what I need to do to be prepared and also how thankful I am to have the gospel. It's my favorite and I hope the author writes another series. I would love to know if Chris Stewart will ever be at a book signing in Salt Lake. I will be there if he comes.
I absolutely loved each and every book! I read the series when each book was released as a single. The world and personal circumstance of the characters depicted created connection. I could picture us, today, in the same situation. I laughed. I cried. I found it difficult to put them down. A story of destruction and fear, good vs. evil, faith and hope, and of rebuilding. I will read them again!
This series of books are the best set of books ever! It took me 3 hours to read each book. It was scary, made you think about your own mortality and just a big what if this really happened?
Please make another series like this one Mr. Stewart. I love your works.
I loved each and every book this Set. I enjoyed reading these books and felt each one has impacted the way I live my life. I am more aware of Satan and the way he tries to tempt or discourage me. I also have gained a stronger testimony of my purpose in this world. Never underestimate yourself, your testimony, or the work you do in the Kingdom of God.
A enjoyable read but definitely not completed. Missions, marriages, fortunes and the millennium yet to arrive. Chris Stewart please complete this thought provoking series.
His idea of the pre-existence is a bit strange. An ugly dead bird lying in the street? C'mon! Sam, Ammon, Luke, and Elizabeth are brothers and sister from a good family. Aren't we all? Don't we all have the same father? There are inconsistencies all through the books. When you first meet Bono, he can speak 3 or 4 languages, including Arabic, fluently and Sam just can't get it. The next book Bono just can't pick up the Arabic and Sam understands it. There are so many mistakes, I think they forgot to hire a proofreader. But still, I enjoyed the books and hated to get to the end. I understood it would take us all the way through, from the pre-existence to the Millenium. Is there perhaps another book coming?
