Spirit Fighters

                                                           :My random thoughts:
Ever since I read the Angeleon series a little bit ago, I've been hooked on the idea of angles on earth, especially the Nephili.  This book particulary grabbed me, because of the line, "Percy Jackson, move over! Jonah Stone is here!" I've been interested in the Percy Jackson series, and decided to give this novel a try. What could it hurt? Nothing at all.
:Publisher's Description:
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.

  • Characters:  They were all quite enjoyable. I found Henry to be a little odd to get used to at first, since he seemed so condradictory, let me explain.  He spoke with such wisdom, but looked like a teen in sneakers. It was much easier to get used to the other angels.   The thing I love most about Nephili and angel novels is the personal aspect they add to something I always took for granted. Angels are just as much real and alive, thinking and breathing as we are.  Not just simple chess peices.
It was interesting. I liked it. It wasn't at all slow, or boring. And was entertaining enough to keep a 16 year old happy while still being easy enough for a 9, maybe even 7-8 year old to read.

Writing Style:
It was really fast paced. Sometimes, I felt a little choppy, however.  When Jonah is told he is a quaterling, he just latches on to the idea without giving it any thought. Also the way his parents break the news to him is a little cheesy, but not terribly laughable.

Cover:Can you ask for a more better, action packed, drag you in cover?

Ending:It was well ended, but left plenty of room for a sequel.

World Building:
While the world was already made, the development of the spirit (angelic and demonic) world is very admirable.
None, however, several Moon Truckers do, quote, "Disrespectful finger signs". I shall let you figure out what that means.
Drugs and Drink:
Romance and sexual content:
Jonah's mom and dad kiss once to their children's disgust.
The evil demons are indeed evil, and don't hesitate at harming people, physically or spiritually. Also, their are warrior angels, and a few battles. Nothing gory or unneeded.

This book was clean in every aspect, beautifully written, and completely worth its:
