1.0 out of 5 starsWhere are the children?

2.0 out of 5 starsA clunky novel that was hastily written.

This novel reads like a rough draft or an outline. It's as though Chad Daybell jotted down a few thoughts of his "visions" and then added in some really bad dialogue.
Bad Chad. Really bad.
So, I plead to anyone out there who is contemplating spending 10 bucks on this e-book. SAVE YOUR MONEY and go buy The Way of Aloha: Lanai. by Cameron C Taylor. Not only is the price of Taylor's book $1.07, his writing is magnitudes better than Daybell. Plus you will fill uplifted and be better prepared for the second coming of the Savior, rather than reading Daybell's poorly written mormon apocalypse fiction.
5.0 out of 5 starsGreat start to a terrific series. Worth the buy!

I am a big reader and am always on the lookout for new series. I have been on an end of the world kick for a few years and reading everything associated with possible scenarios.
This is book 1 in the Times of Turmoil scenario. I like these books because they get across an "apocalyptic" story but using clean language and concepts. It does not detract from the horror of it, or the intent of the doomsday happenings, but nice to keep all the garbage out I find in some other series. I enjoy Chad's writing style. His style reminds me of Vince Flynn, hard and fast and keeps the pages turning. Good pacing.
A great introduction to the Times of Turmoil series with some good character development and interesting concepts and thought processes. I like the imagination involved in the story. I am looking forward to the continuation of the series.

Chad Daybell has done it again! I was drawn into this book so quickly and I hate to put it down. Chad's ability to bring his readers into the story is amazing, but, even more amazing is his ability to pretty much foresee the future, as he did in his, "Standing in Holy Places", series. His books about the coming end times stirs within my soul, an even greater desire to prepare. And his message in his books are perfectly in line with what Heavenly Father tells me. I have no doubt that Chad is another instrument in Heavenly Father's hands!
5.0 out of 5 starsPay more attention to the series of events and less to the story line and you'll get it

Pay attention to the details in this series of books. Chad Daybell has had some -um- experiences, and "Times of Turmoil" series and "Standing In Holy Places" series documents some of what he was shown. Don't get too hung up in the story line though.
5.0 out of 5 starsAuthor Chad Daybell Has done his homework!

As I read the first few pages I thought the story would be a too obvious, LDS-slanted approach. As the story unfolded, the events seemed strikingly realistic, and frightening possible if not probable. The book is, as we say, a quick read...so I’ve just now started the second book in the series!

I love Chad Daybell's books. I read this one shortly after it came out. Yesterday during a long 11 hour drive from California to Utah, I read the book to my husband. He was amazed at the parallels to actual conditions in the world today. He felt it was very interesting and asked me if I had the sequel at home. We are anxiously awaiting the next in this series.
