Spirit fighter by Jerel Law

This is book 1 in Son of Angels: Jonah Stone series. It was awesome!! It's sort of a mix between Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson and Frank Peretti-like books. It's about quarterlings - children of Nephilim or half-angels - whose mother is kidnapped by fallen angels serving Abaddon (devil). The children put their trust in Elohim (God) and trust Him to get them thru all the obstacles in their way to rescue their mother. They are helped by their guardian angel who secretly wishes to be promoted to the ranks of warrior angel. The book is based on Ephesians 6: 10-20 - 10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. The book takes each part of putting on the whole armour of God and uses it to describe how the children prepare themselves to fight Abaddon. There are a lot of scripture references throughout the book. One thing I notice about it, is that it's not necessarily the sort of book to give someone as encouragement to become a Christian. I think that this book is for those who already know scripture well and will understand the various characters and references made throughout. However, it is overall a great book for anyone to read who wants a clean read for a change. I received this book from Thomas Nelson Book-Sneeze
