A Really Good Book Series--

I have never been much of a reader. I do like to read for information, for example, when I was pregnant, I read everything I could get my hands on about pregnancy. When our first born had colic, I read everything I could get my hands on about colic. I think you get the message.

Lately, I've been reading a series of books--The Great and Terrible--by Chris Stewart. I just started the sixth and final book in the series--Clear As The Moon. These are very fast moving books about the last days. On Amazon.com under Product Description the book is described as follows, "The nuclear explosion over Washington D.C. and the subsequent EMP attack have left a decapitated government and 300 million helpless citizens. In the ensuing chaos, a dark and powerful cartel steps forward to claim power. The Constitution of the United States hangs in the balance as the eternal struggle between good and evil spreads through the government. After Sara Brighton agrees to help a shadow government rise to power, Sara and Bono are sent on the most dangerous military mission of their lives. Azadeh agrees to guide them through the mountains of Iran as they seek for the key that could save the world. Struggling against overwhelming odds, they realize the most important lesson of their time: Faith is the only thing that matters as the final day draws near."

Other reviews describe the books as "powerful", and "thought provoking." One reader said that they weren't sure if something like this could really happen, but it really gets one thinking about the last days. Personally, I had a hard time putting these books down. That's a lot coming from me, because, like I said, I've never been much of a reader. I am so glad I had all six of them, because if I had to wait, for the next one to come out, I would have been really tict.

The first book, The Brothers, actually starts out during the pre-existance. The second book, Where Angels Fall, continues during Earth life, as do the rest of the books in the series. Well, I really need to go, because I hear a book calling me. Hopefully, I will be able to find time this weekend to finish. I sure hope it has a good ending...
