Spirit Fighter by Jerel Law is the first book in a new series called Son of Angels for children. In this first installment Jonah finds out that he is a quarterling. What's a quarterling? A child born to someone who is half angel. Right after Jonah finds out he is part angel something bad happens(don't want to spoil the story) and he meets two angels who send him on a mission with his sister, who is also a quarterling, to save the day.
The author Jerel Law is a pastor and father who began telling stories to his own children as a way to build their faith in God. And now he is sharing those stories with the rest of us.
I enjoyed this book even though it is written for children. There is a lot of action in this Christian Fantasy story. As a mom I appreciate that it doesn't have the usual disrespect for inept adults. The children rely on their faith and accept the help and advice of others as they go through their journey. The main character refers back to his father's advice and to what he has taught him about God and faith. The children use memorized Bible verses in times of trouble and a Bible an elderly friend has give to them to learn more about their angelic gifts. The story line was interesting, exciting, and full of imagination.
After I read the book I handed it off to my 10 year old son and he instantly took interest in reading it. The cover illustration draws your attention and makes you want to find out what is going on inside the book. I know my children will enjoy this story and I know they will learn about their faith as they read it.
