4.0 out of 5 starsWorth the purchase, great continuation of the series

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 3 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. There are some leaps of faith in here for the plot's sake I find a tad lazy, but not enough to interrupt the enjoyment of the book.
My only complaint is it is too short, and ends too quickly. Maybe you should connect with Brandon Sanderson and book 4 can end up around 600 pages!
Exciting to read. Deep thought and sadness at the whole necessary concepts of all it takes to create Zion. In hearts and minds. Especially as I contemplate my family, my ward family and all those I know.
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.

I bought the first book just to check it out. But, bought every book after reading just one of his first book in his series. I really had a very fun time reading this book, as I have had with ALL of his books. Good, clean, exciting and you never know how it's gonna end. A very fun read.
5.0 out of 5 starsWonderful faith building to read

From studying the scriptures I've know of some of the trials the saints will face . This book shows some of them but gives hope to know God's hand will be in everything if we are faithful to the end we will be okay even in death .I 've rated this book so high because of the spirit I felt as I read it teaching me to know if I have faith in God all things will be as he wants
