aving been raised as “normal” kids, Jonah and Eliza are surprised to find out they are quarter-angels. Maybe if their parents would have sat them down and discussed the fact that their mother was a Nephilim, it wouldn’t have come as such a shock, not that they knew what Nephilim were! Finding out you have special powers as you’re standing up to a Bully can leave you speechless. To think that Jonah had these powers all along and was never aware of them, just wait until he tells Eliza!
Jonah starts noticing unusual happenings, his senses are now more aware, noticing the evil around him. The kids soon learn of their mothers kidnapping, and find out that it is up to them to save her! Can they put their new powers to work defeating the evil that lurks around them? Can they really overcome everything through God’s help?
I loved this book, as did my 11 year old son! He is an avid reader, and has read many similar books in the secular market by different authors. I tend to be leery of what he is reading, unsure of the content, if I haven’t read the book myself. While I know a book is not “safe reading” just because it is classified as a “Christian” read, it does tend to put my mind more at ease.
Now, I have to admit, I do not know my Bible inside and out like I should. I loved when we came across a verse from Genesis in the first few chapters of the Spirit Fighter, leading us to the part of the Bible where the Nephilim are referred to. I know we have both read that part of the Bible before, but had not fully understood or even remembered the Nephilim being mentioned there. From talking with different colleagues, I understand that these verses in the Bible have led to many discussions, just exactly what were Nephilim, and if they were real.
Scripture is placed sporadically throughout the book, giving reference to and backing up parts of the story that refer to putting on the armor of God, the shield of faith, and so much more! Jonah and Eliza use scripture throughout their battles, helping to build their faith and stand strong in their beliefs. I loved how this was a strong reminder to kids nowadays to clothe themselves in what is right and true.
Some may think that because this is a Christian author, that it might be more bland, or melancholy for the kids to read. Not the case! This book is full of suspense, the type where you are sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for what’s around the corner. The kind you can’t put down at night, you need to read just one more chapter!
Jerel Law is an excellent writer, who hits this one out of the ballpark! Once you read Spirit Fighter, you’ll anxiously be awaiting the next release in this series, Fire Prophet, due to release in December, 2012!
