Synopsis: 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?
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 action, adventure, and supernatural fights. But the message is solidly based in Scripture, conveying God is always in control.
REVIEW: I'd like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
You can find my review of the previous book in the series here, from a year ago. What a change a year can make in my life, but its been so much time apart from the series, maybe I should have re-read the second book first. This book really relied more on the previous books than the second did, and I didn't really like that.However, it is a series, and that does happen.
There was just as much action as the previous book, and we revisited many of the past characters. We did get to see more of the Stone parents as they started figuring more into the story line. The religious theme and the Bible were heavy but not overwhelming. The story of Job was a nice parallel.
Overall, I enjoyed the book and hope to read the next. I know I said that I would have liked to read the first in the series, well, I just went out and bought it.
