Review: Fire Prophet by Jerel Law
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.
I had the opportunity to review Spirit Fighter, the first book in this series, and couldn't wait for the second one to be published. It did not disappoint me. These books are full of adventure and battles between good and evil. I love the characters. Children (8 and up) can easily relate to Jonah, Eliza, Jeremiah, and their friends. The best part about these books is that they are Bible based! Today's tween and teens will get so much more than adventure out of these books! They will see Scripture coming to life and that it does apply to the world still today.
In The Fire Prophet I loved the focus and teaching the children according to their Spiritual Gifts and how their gifts helped them work together as a team. I loved the very real visual of the prayer barrier of protection. I loved the story and the ending (but I'm not going to tell you about that!) If you have children in the 8 and older range have them read (or read aloud) The Sons of Angels series. This series is the first Christian answer to Percy Jackson, The Kane Chronicles , Harry Potter etc...But, the message is scriptural and shows throughout that God has a plan and is always in control. I enjoyed reading it myself and look forward to more books in the series.
I received a complimentary ebook copy of The Fire Prophet for the purpose of writing a fair and honest review. I received no other compensation.
