Spirit Fighter by Jerel Law
This is a fantasy story for Christian kids. I think it is written to appeal to those parents who don't like the Harry Potter type books because they believe anything about witchcraft is evil and who don't like the Percy Jackson books because they are about the Greek (false)gods. In this book, instead of witchcraft or ancient gods and goddesses, we have kids who are one quarter angel. Their mother is a nephilim, daughter of a human mother and father who is a fallen angel. So, 12 year old Jonah and his younger sister Eliza are sent on a mission to rescue their mother when she is kidnapped by the fallen angels who have some sort of plot to destroy the world. With Henry, their guardian angel, and Elohim, the name they call God in this book,on their side, Jonah and his sister are guaranteed victory. The story is a well-written adventure although it is rather predictable. The kids, being one quarter angel, have superpowers given to them by Elohim. I am not sure if I am thrilled about God being a character in a book along with angels with superpowers fighting the bad guys. If that does not bother you though, then you will probably enjoy this book. I received this book free to review from booksneeze.
