Fire Prophet


Goodreads synopsis: 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.

Review: I received a copy of this book through BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review. 
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a quick, easy read that was filled with action and adventure. It had a decidedly religious theme that I didn't find too overwhelming. If anything I found the way the religious theme was presented as very accepting. I liked how some of the other of the quarterlings were shown as not having a very strong religious background. 
Even though I haven't read the first book of the series, and I really want to now, the background information wasn't too confusing. It was a book that you could almost read alone, but I really don't want to. I've fallen in love with Jonah, Eliza and their little brother, Jeremiah. 
It was actually a book that made me see the Bible in an interesting manner  I may just want to take the Bible in our home down off the shelf its been in and open it for the first time in 20 years or so because of this book.
