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.

"Jerel Law has crafted a fantastic story that will leave every reader wanting more. Stop looking for the next great read in fantasy fiction for young readers-you've found it!" -Robert Liparulo, bestselling author of Dreamhouse Kings and "The 13th Tribe"

Expected publication: December 11th 2012

Thomas Nelson Publishers

Paperback, 256 pages
 
Summary from Goodreads:
"Jerel Law transports readers to a place where supernatural forces of good and evil collide. Young readers will be entertained and inspired . . . I heartily recommend it." -Robert Whitlow, bestselling author of the Tides of Truth series

What if you could actually see angels and fallen angels engaging in battle-and you were expected to join the fight?

It's been one year since Jonah Stone and his sister, Eliza, discovered that their mother is a nephilim, the product of a union between a human and a fallen angel, which makes them and their little brother, Jeremiah, "quarterlings," or one-quarter angel. After embarking on an epic journey to rescue their mother and the other nephilim, who were kidnapped by fallen angels, the Stone kids have enjoyed a little peace and quiet.

But when Jonah and Eliza are attacked by fallen angels at school, they learn that quarterlings all over the world are being targeted, and separating them from their parents is the only way to keep them safe. The kids undergo special training to help them discover their own unique angelic gifts, which come in handy when they embark on a mission to find a mysterious prophet who they believe holds the key to Abaddon's defeat in a massive battle between good and evil.

Parents today are looking for fiction that makes Christianity and the Bible exciting for their kids. This series is the first 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. But the message is solidly scriptural in that God alone is always in control.

Eliza's Diary Entry:
Eliza’s Diary
Entry #34
I haven’t had much time until now to reflect on what this all really feels like. To
appear so normal (okay, between you and me, I’ve never been accused of being normal,
just ask my brother, Jonah…but you know what I mean), and yet so…not. I thought I
was, for the first twelve years of my life, at least. That was until I saw Jonah do
something so extraordinary that even my skeptical eyes were convinced.
And then, of course, it happened to me. I mean, it was different than him…we
all have different gifts. We were out on that road alone, and I was so scared. Jonah
was too, though he probably wouldn’t admit it. Those animals were coming at us, with
their strange yellow eyes, and for some reason I raised my hands up, without even
thinking. A defense mechanism, maybe.
I still remember the first time I felt that tingling sensation, moving from my
chest, through my shoulders, and all the way into the ends of my outstretched fingers.
Like a slow-creeping electrical current, blasting through my fingertips. A shield,
protecting us from the raging animals. The Shield of Faith, as Henry, our guardian
angel, would tell me later.
I was as surprised as anyone. But that was before I knew that Jonah and I (and
supposedly, Jeremiah, though we haven’t seen any proof of this yet) had angel blood
coursing through our veins. One-quarter angel blood, to be precise.
How weird is that?
I don’t have any proof of this, and it’s not like me to make predictions. But I
have a feeling that something – something big – is about to happen. Even bigger than
the adventure Jonah and I had in (and underneath) New York.
Besides, after seeing what we’ve seen, how could life just return to normal?
Whatever normal is…
