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.
What an awesome read! I started out reading this book with my 11 year old son, but it was hard to find a time that we could read together since he is still in school. I decided to finish the book without him, and once school is out, we will pick right up where we left off. The first few chapters we read together though were great, he enjoyed them as much as I did! He is an avid reader, and loved reading the books that were mentioned above, but we were both excited to see what this series, with a Christian background to it, had to offer.
Now, I have to admit, I do not know my Bible inside out like I should. I loved when we came across a verse from Genesis in the first few chapters of the Spirit Fighter, leading us to the part of the Bible where the Nephilim are referred to. I know we have both read that part of the Bible before, but had not fully understood or even remembered the Nephilim being there.
Scripture is placed sporadically throughout the book, giving reference to and backing up parts of the story that refer to putting on the armor of God, the shield of faith, and so much more! Jonah and Eliza (his sister), use scripture throughout their battles, helping to build their faith and stand strong in their beliefs. I loved how this was a strong reminder to kids now a days to cloth themselves in what is right and true.
I LOVED this book! I would give it more stars if I could, but since I can't, I will give it 5! If your looking for a good read, something to share with your tween or teen, I highly suggest this book!
