Title & Author: Spirit Fighter by Jerel Law
Short Summary: 7th grader Johan Stone is happy with his life until his mom is captured by demons. The secret it out, his mom is a nephilim: half human, half fallen angel. This makes Jonah and his siblings part angel. With their new found powers, Jonah and his sister must save their mom, and the earth as well.
What I liked about the story: I liked the fact that this is the only story not directly from the Bible that I’ve read about face to face human-angel interaction.
What I liked about the writing: I liked the descriptions of the hidden realm and of the angels and demons. I felt like I could draw one based on the wording in the book.
Review by Nate, age 13
Book summary from Goodreads: Your mom always said you were an angel. What if she was right? Jonah Stone has always thought of himself as average, but in seventh grade he learns a fascinating family secret, and his world turns upside down. Jonah’s mom is a nephilim, the daughter of a human and a fallen angel, which makes Jonah one-quarter angel. When his mom is kidnapped by fallen angels, it’s up to Jonah and his sister Eliza to rescue her. Guided by prayer and a guardian angel, Jonah and Eliza embark on an epic adventure through the streets of New York and come to understand that God plans in ways they never could have imagined. Spirit Fighter, Book 1 in the Son of Angels: Jonah Stone series, is an imaginative adventure that is based on scripture in the book of Genesis.
