All in all, it is a great and complex story that blew my mind.
James Duckett
Even though I am sad to see it end, the finale invites the reading to feel hopeful about the future because of the good people who still exist in this world.

This book like the first 5 books in this series was wonderfully written.

A few years ago I was at the library looking for something new to read. I was looking for something entertaining in the LDS section and came across an interesting book called "The Brothers: A Prologue" What fascinated me about this book was that it was entirely written in the pre-mortal life. I've never read anything like that and picked it up.

There were two sections that were not framed in the pre-mortal life. The story opens up with a funeral at Arlington Cemetery. It doesn't say who's funeral it is but I figured I would find out eventually. The ending of the story was a preface for the following book, where the story takes place here on Earth.

I liked the first book but it seemed somewhat, well, simple in presentation. I gave Chris Stewart for writing something original but had actually planned on stopping with that book since the story had already reached its climax and the only question left open was "Who's funeral is it?"

But then I reflected on that opening scene in the book, the funeral. I remembered how powerful it was, how emotional it was, how moving it was, and how un-simple it was. It seriously almost brought me to tears. So I decided that maybe he would do it again with his story.

So I have read the rest of the series. And I'm glad I did... what a phenomenal story and engrossing story! When others ask what the series is about the easiest way to sum it up is like this: A Mormon Tom Clancy. Chris Stewart seems to have a good understanding of government and military protocol and has put together something that is both scary and thought-provoking. Could any of this really happen? Unlikely, but it still scares the living daylights out of me.

There are basically three plots in this book.

Clear as the Moon

Clear as the Moon is the 6th and final book in the Great and Terrible series, published in 2008, by the Deseret Book Company. This aw-inspiring last book written by Chris Stewart has just about everything from suspense, to spirituality. The author Chris Stewart, who has also written Shattered Bone, The Kill Box, The Third Consequence etc. lives with his wife Evie and 6 children in Utah.

There are few words to describe the complexity of the characters in this series. Katherine Lee Bates author of "America The Beautiful" summarizes a few of these characters greatly "Oh, beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife, who more than self their country loved, and mercy more than life!" Sam Brighton, Luke Brighton, Ammon Brighton, Sarah Brighton, Azadeh Ishbel Pahlavi, Bono, and Caelyn. All through the series we have watched them develop, now, and finally they are at their fullest potential, which will finally defeat Abdullah?

So far Abdullah has bombed Israel, made the whole entire United States go dark with an electromagnetic pulse, bombed Washington D.C. and multiple other things. It is our characters job to stop them. In the Beginning everyone is trying to fix little things on their own, but in the middle they all get together to devise a plan to take him down. The son of the first prince of Saud, who is the rightful heir to the throne, is hiding deep in the mountains. He is their only hope. In the end Sam and the other Cherokees develop a plan. An extremely risking plan because of all it will take, and all it will involve. It will take all of their efforts as they try to do what they truly need to for their country.

"Twenty-four roses. Twelve red and twelve white. White roses for virtue. Red roses for blood.

Having read the first 5 in the series, I was anxiously waiting for number 6. It started out a bit slow, but made up for it later on. The ending of the series was different than I expected, but well done nonetheless. I will miss the characters. I wish Chris Stewart was continuing on with the story, as I feel there is more to be told. But I understand his ending it where he did. It was a great ride anyway. Very interesting perspectives on things. Even though I am sad to see it end, the finale invites the reading to feel hopeful about the future because of the good people who still exist in this world. Great series...great ending.

I just finished a marathon listening of Chris Stewart's "The Great and Terrible" series and I must say that I have rarely been as profoundly moved by a novel. The best literature, films, and stories are the ones that make us reexamine our own circumstances, motives, and souls and encourage us to consider what we would do if confronted with the same challenges. I found myself taking stock of my own life and state of preparedness and mentally rehearsing what I would do if faced with such dire circumstances.

This series grabbed my attention from the beginning of "The Brothers" (who isn't curious about the pre-existence?) and held it until the final epilogue in "Clear as the Moon". Stewart's compelling story has prompted me to see my husband and family differently and more compassionately than I did before as I consider the nature of their character before coming to earth, and what kind of person I was before coming here. I've even started formulating plans to help organize the homeowners in my subdivision in the event of an EMP-style catastrophe. And I'm taking stock of our storage of food, water, medicines, and the means to protect ourselves and our neighborhood. "If ye are prepared, ye shall not fear" applies to more than just temporal preparation. One of Stewart's driving themes is spiritual and emotional preparation, too. The reader is reminded, through the narrative of the Brighton family, that this preparation is perhaps the most important of all.

Now, what other novel can inspire all of that?
