Jerel Law has written a series on the level of Percy Jackson and Harry Potter for originality, action and the ability to draw the reader into this Christian-based tale of good vs. evil!
Book 2 of this series begins about a year after Jonah and Eliza Stone discovered they were part angel and had to rescue their mom from fallen angels. In this book, their younger brother, Jeremiah must also take up the fight. The kids discover that all of the quarterlings around the world are being targeted by fallen angels, after they were attacked at school. Jonah keeps hearing a voice in his head and seeing visions, someone is calling for his help.
All of the quarterling children are being called upon to train to fight the fallen angels and Abaddon in order to save the world. Separated from their parents, the children must learn to work together and have faith that God will protect them in the upcoming battle. Jonah, in particular feels the need to protect all around him as well as find the person who keeps calling to him.
What a wonderful way to introduce or reinforce Christianity and faith for younger readers! The battles were deadly, but not overpowering with gore. The gravity of the situations were apparent without being too intense, more like being seen through the eyes of young Jonah. Although infused with strong Christian fibers and messages, the overall action will enthrall middle grade readers who will identify readily with these kids! Well done from start to finish!
