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.

*Some Spoilers Below* I'd give 3 1/2 stars if Amazon allowed that.

Based on the recommendation of a friend, I started reading the "Great and Terrible" series. By the end of book three I had my dad, mom, and brother all reading it as well based on my feedback to them. As a whole, I would give this series 4 1/2 out of five stars. In fact, the end of book 3, and books 4 and 5 were right up there with some of the best books that I have read (I could not put the books down). Chis Stewart did a great job bringing in a number of story lines and making the reader genuinely care about each (at lest that was how I felt). I had my favorite characters, but unlike some books, I was not finding myself skipping through pages during chapters that covered people I did not really care about.

In fairness, book 6 (Clear as the Moon) was also excellent right up until the last few pages. It is as if the book was written thinking that there would be a book 7. However, about 90% of the way through the book Chris, for whatever the reason, just had to end the book and just wrapped up the series while tying up most of the lose ends as quickly as possible. I found it to be a big letdown personally. After multiple books reading about how the conspirators were moving to take over the United States government and basically the entire world, the whole issue was resolved in about about two small chapters or so at the end of book six. The two brothers Ammon and Luke just disappear then get a small mention to tie up their story line near the end. I think we deserved to get more satisfaction out of what happened to the Saudi King in the end than the quick end that ties up that story after all of the pain and destruction that he inflicted to the country and world.
