Percy Jackson, move over! Jonah Stone is here!
What if Nephilim-the children of angels and men-still walked the earth? And their very presence put the entire world in danger? In "Spirit Fighter," Jonah and Eliza Stone learn that their mother is a Nephilim and that they have special powers as quarter-angels. When their mom is kidnapped by fallen angels, they must use those powers to save her. Along the way, they discover that there is a very real and dangerous war going on between good and evil and that God has a big part for them to play in that war.
Parents today are looking for fiction that makes Christianity and the Bible exciting for their kids. This series is the Christian answer to "Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Kane Chronicles, The Secret Series" and other middle-grade series packed with adventure, action, and supernatural fights. "Son of Angels, Jonah Stone" will be the first series in the market to explore this topic from a biblical perspective with content that is appropriate and exciting for middle-grade readers.
"Jerel Law has crafted a fantastic story that will leave every reader wanting more. Stop looking for the next great read in fantasy fiction for young readers-you've found it!" -Robert Liparulo, bestselling author of Dreamhouse Kings and "The 13th Tribe"

What a wonderful book. A fresh new series for children of all ages. Jonah Stone a typical 13 year old has one thing on his mind, basketball tryouts. After a disastrous attempt to make the team, Jonah prays to God for guidance and direction. Soon he discovers he can do remarkable things. Impossible things! After talking with his mother, Jonah discovers he is one quarter Angel. His grandfather was a fallen angel. As this starts to sink in, Jonah wonders what plans God has in store for him and his family. He doesn't have to wait long to find out.
Jonah's mother is kidnapped by fallen angels who want to destroy Jonah and his family. The only ones who are able to stop them are Jonah and his 11 year old sister Eliza. Elohim calls upon them to rescue their mother. They have to remember that Elohim will never leave or forsake them. When God gives you a mission He is always by your side. With the help of their guardian angel, they race to New York in hopes of finding their mom and rescuing her in time, before she is turned into a fallen angel herself.
I received this book as part of this blog tour for a fair and honest review. It is a Christian Fiction Series aimed toward the middle grade level but all ages will enjoy reading this book. It is wonderful to read such a fresh, clean and exciting new series. It is hard to find a book that you are able to share with your children. This is a wonderful series and I recommend it to children of all ages.
Fire Prophet (Book #2)
by Jerel Law
Expected publication: December 11th 2012
Thomas Nelson Publishers
Paperback, 256 pages
What if you could actually see angels and fallen angels engaging in battle-and you were expected to join the fight?
It's been one year since Jonah Stone and his sister, Eliza, discovered that their mother is a nephilim, the product of a union between a human and a fallen angel, which makes them and their little brother, Jeremiah, "quarterlings," or one-quarter angel. After embarking on an epic journey to rescue their mother and the other nephilim, who were kidnapped by fallen angels, the Stone kids have enjoyed a little peace and quiet.
But when Jonah and Eliza are attacked by fallen angels at school, they learn that quarterlings all over the world are being targeted, and separating them from their parents is the only way to keep them safe. The kids undergo special training to help them discover their own unique angelic gifts, which come in handy when they embark on a mission to find a mysterious prophet who they believe holds the key to Abaddon's defeat in a massive battle between good and evil.
Parents today are looking for fiction that makes Christianity and the Bible exciting for their kids. This series is the first Christian answer to Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the Kane Chronicles, the Secret Series, and other middle grade series packed with adventure, action, and supernatural fights. But the message is solidly scriptural in that God alone is always in control.

Jonah is having dreams and visions where someone is calling out to him for help. He can't see who this person is but he knows that he has to do something, he just doesn't know how. When the fallen angels arrive again, they are prepared to attack and this time they won't give up so easy. How in the world will Jonah keep his siblings and everyone else safe this time? Jonah knows that with God all things are possible. We have to depend on Him to take care of all of our needs.
This is another extraordinary book. A nice, clean book that you will love to share with your children. My teen and preteen have started reading the series and really enjoy them. We need more books like this to share with our children. I recommend this book for children of all ages.
