FIRE PROPHET by Jerel Law
Book II of the SON OF ANGEL series
DESCRIPTION: (from Amazon)
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.
Jonah and his siblings, Eliza and Jeremiah, have discovered that their mom is one of Nephilim, which are the children of Fallen humans and angels. Jonah has, with his angel gifts saved the Nephilim from the Fallen before. They are now hiding while being trained in war. But can, possibly, prayer save them? Does Jonah risk all to follow Elohim. There are characters That younger children could relate to, not so much YA.These characters show all kinds of emotions and traits. There's a lot of suspense, but the story goes at a nice clip. It is not real scary and you will not find violence in this book. The one thing I didn't care for was should prayer be associated with magical spells? You could say this is a way of showing God's power, on the other hand, you can say that prayer is associated with fantasy. Will children know the difference?Fire Prophet is the sequel to Spirit Fighter, last year's book. You will find a lot of action in this book from the start to the finish. Parents, just be sure your child understands the difference between fantasy and reality. If you feel your child does, then this is a wonderful read for them.
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.
