We’ve got a great middle grade fantasy series to spotlight today on Swoony Boys Podcast: the Sons of Angels Series by Jerel Law! You can check out the other stops on the tour here.
Sons of Angels Series Book 1: Spirit Fighter
Your mom always said you were an angel. What if she was right?
Jonah Stone has always thought of himself as average, but in seventh grade he learns a fascinating family secret, and his world turns upside down. Jonah’s mom is a nephilim, the daughter of a human and a fallen angel, which makes Jonah one-quarter angel. When his mom is kidnapped by fallen angels, it’s up to Jonah and his sister Eliza to rescue her.
Guided by prayer and a guardian angel, Jonah and Eliza embark on an epic adventure through the streets of New York and come to understand that God plans in ways they never could have imagined. Spirit Fighter, Book 1 in the Son of Angels: Jonah Stone series, is an imaginative adventure that is based on scripture in the book of Genesis.
Sons of Angels Series Book 2: Fire Prophet
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.
Sons of Angels Series Book 3: Shadow Chaser
Join part angel Jonah Stone as he faces his biggest challenge yet!
Many months have passed since part angel siblings Jonah, Eliza, and Jeremiah Stone began their angelic training. As part angels, or “quarterlings,” the siblings joined other children of nephilim to begin honing their special powers.
In this third installment in the Son of Angels series, Jonah’s story comes to resemble a modern-day Job as he’s faced with trials that affect his health, strength, relationships, and most-prized possessions. As he and the other quarterlings prepare for mid-term exams, their powers are tested once again in the most fierce battle against Abaddon’s forces yet. Will Jonah’s faith in Elohim continue to persevere as he fights Abaddon in his hardest battle yet?

We didn’t really know what to expect when we were invited to join the tour for Jerel Law’s Sons of Angels series. We love fantasy and definitely want to check out more Middle Grade. We were really surprised by how much we enjoyed reading this series.
Parents are often looking for better choices for their kids to read, and the Sons of Angels series is a definitely safe bet. It’s especially hard to find Christian books that are still interesting and don’t seem to be “preaching” at the reader. One of the things that we liked the best about this series, so far, is that there is a lot of scripture, so kids who want to look it up can, but it’s also not “in-your-face” or judgmental. It’s a fantasy series featuring angels with tons of adventure and action. We think both boys and girls will like it, and it’s a great series to read along with your kids. Definitely give this series a shot!
Shadow Chaser comes out tomorrow (May 7, 2013), and we can’t wait for the next in the series, Truth Runner, which is coming in November 2013.
