Product Description

Jonah Stone doesn't feel like anything special-his younger sister Eliza outshines him in academics, his younger brother Jeremiah embarrasses him at every corner in school, and he can't even make it through Day 1 in basketball tryouts. But that's all about to change when he discovers that his mother is a Nephilim and that as a quarter-angel, he has special powers. When his mom is kidnapped by fallen angels, Jonah and his sister must use their 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 part for them to play in the war.

Publisher's Description

“In his exciting debut novel, Jerel Law transports readers to a place where supernatural forces of good and evil collide. Young readers will be entertained and inspired by Spirit Fighter. I heartily recommend it.” —Robert Whitlow, bestselling author of the Tides of Truth series

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

Author Bio

Jerel Law is a gifted communicator, pastor, and church planter with over twenty years experience working full-time in ministry. He holds a Master of Divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Seminary and began writing fiction as a way to express his faith and communicate God’s love to others. Law lives in North Carolina with his family.

Publisher's Weekly

Law dreams up an exciting debut novel featuring seventh-grader Jonah Stone, who learns to his amazement that he, his younger sister Eliza, and little brother Jeremiah are quarterlings: one quarter angel. He is the offspring of a nephilim, a half-angel descended from a human and a fallen angel. Immediately after he learns that, angels, and trouble, fly. When the children’s nephilim mother, Eleanor, is kidnapped, Jonah and Eliza are tasked with finding her in New York, where, with the help of guardian angel Henry (who looks like a teenager), they face battles for their lives and souls. Law negotiates well the balance between using a biblical infrastructure and making it sleekly modern and appropriately fantastical. There’s lots of action, credibly repellent evil creatures, characters young readers can relate to, moral fiber, and the promise of more adventure in the Son of Angels: Jonah Stone series. Law’s young quarter-angels are off to a flying start. Ages 9-up. (Apr.)2012 Reed Business Information

    This book begins with a bang and races from there. I actually got the third book first, but quickly realized that I needed to read books one and two to complete the story. The children learn that they are special kids destined to fight in the spiritual warfare battle of good against evil. What child (or any age for that matter) can resist that! The kids learn to put on their armor when they are called on to go into battle by going to school with others who also have special gifts. The book uses versus from the Bible to back up the story. This should be in every library that has a Harry Potter book, and gifted to every child that loves to read. I would much rather see kids consuming this than Harry Potter. I highly recommend this series for lovers of action and supernatural forces.

    Angels have always been a fascinating topic for me. So, if you offer me a story that oozes with angelic history and legend - including mention of the Nephilim and spiritual warfare - and tell me I can share it with my boys, I'm in. And in I am. With Spirit Fighter, Jerel Law brings to life a tale of heroic pursuits, danger, intrigue, and a search for more than you might expect at first glance.

    Brother and sister duo Jonah and Eliza learn that they're special. Moreso, that they are urgently needed to complete a mission for Elohim. Using talents and skills they're learning "on the job," the two head off on a rescue mission and discover themselves, each other, and the importance of faith. Central to their adventures - and offered up for the reader's benefit - is a lesson on the full armor of God, anchored in faith.

    Many people will certainly call this a "Christian version of Percy Jackson," and, to be fair, there certainly appears to be a bit of overlap. But, I haven't read the Percy Jackson series, so I'll just acknowledge the similarities as I understand them and move on to how well this book was recieved by my boys (8 & 10). They were hanging on every word and already can't wait for book two. Fall can't come soon enough (though, I might have called it "Autumn" based on the content).

    This book is about a seventh grader named Jonah Stone who thinks himself as a normal boy. He soon discovers that he and his siblings,Eliza and Jeremiah, are "quartelings"; people who are one-fourth angel. The siblings, with the help of their guide Henry, use their powers in a bid to stop the war of good against evil.

    First of all, I would not compare this book to the Percy Jackson or Harry Potter series. I think they are totally different. I want not entirely impressed with this series, as I found it very predictive, and somewhat plain, though I'm not sure if that's because I'm out of the target audiences' age range. What I did like though was the the way the Jerel tied in the "biblical background". It was pretty interesting in that sense, and I think I learned a bit from that. Overall, I'd rate this as OK. I'd probably recommend this to my younger sibling.

    My son loved the Percy Jackson series as well as the 39 Clues series. This book is equal in interest level as well as readability. There is some building up of the premise at the beginning, but the action is included even then; it keeps the reader's interest throughout the entire book.

    It is difficult for me to find good books for my children to read in the pre-teen and early teen years, but this is one that is worth it!

    "Spirit Fighter" is an action packed novel full of everything that would appeal to a tween male. The story moves along at a good pace, there's action and warfare and it involves a boy that is not totally perfect - just pretty much normal, or so one would think until the boy finds he has powers.

    Sounds like a book every tween male would enjoy, but I personally wouldn't recommend it. It blurs the line between Biblical reality and fiction, as it uses scripture and fallen angels to do so. Although the main character, Jonah, uses his power for "good", Scripture says "Who can bring a clean thing out of an unclean? not one." (Job 14:4) If a child is the grandchild of a fallen angel, he won't be the prize he is made out to be in this story.

    Christian children know that magic is not of God, yet in this story we see things that can be done that fall under that magical category. What makes a child decide that since the Bible has been quoted here, that maybe there are others things that aren't quite real in the Scripture? I would much rather hand a child a copy of "Harry Potter" or "The Lightning Thief" because he knows it's pretend and an adult can discuss that with him. Even C. S. Lewis did not mix up Scripture with his children's stories.

    I received this book through the Booksneeze program. I was not required to write a positive review, but instead, one that gives my honest opinion.
