Spirit Fighter-book review



About the Book:

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 OlympiansThe Kane ChroniclesThe 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.

About the Author:

Ever wonder if the invisible things you hear about all the time - God, angels, the spiritual world, the power of prayer - are really...you know...real? And not only real, but huge, in a life-changing kind of way. So huge and real, in fact, that our very lives depend on seeing the unseen. Jerel Law wondered the same thing, and wondered what would happen if a couple of (seemingly) normal kids could see into this invisible world. That's how the Jonah Stone: Son of Angels series was born.
Jerel is captivated by stories about redemption. He is a gifted communicator and pastor with seventeen years of full-time ministry experience. He holds his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (go Tarheels!), and a master of divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Jerel began writing fiction as a way to encourage his children's faith to come alive. Spirit Fighter is his first novel, and part one of the Jonah Stone: Son of Angels series, published by Thomas Nelson. He lives in North Carolina with his family

My Opinion:

This was my first young adult fiction about the Nephilim(children of angels and men) and I was fascinated, I couldn't read this book fast enough to satisfy my curiosity.  Now that I've finished the book I've been asked to review several other books that talk about the same thing the Nephilim (I'd never heard of this before this book) and while I enjoyed the other books I didn't LOVE them as much as I did Spirit Fighter.  It's a spiritual type of Percy Jackson book and brought up a lot of spiritual questions for my children after they read it.  I give it 5 out of 5 stars for great use of imagination and weaving spiritual aspects throughout the book.  I love that good and evil collide and evil gets a good butt whoopin'.


Spirit Fighter can be purchased on Amazon for $4.00 click here to order or the
