PUB DATE: December 11th 2012
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Publishers
Pages: 257

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.

My Review:
I really liked Spirit Fighter (book #1, review HERE) and was really looking forward to continuing the story and see what else was going to come into Jonah Stone's life. And surprisingly, i LOVED this book a bit more than the first one :)
I guess since we already know about them being angels (1/4th) and fighters in this invisible battle between good & evil, we can easily get back into the story. What I liked was that it still kept the multiple POV's and this time we even see it through Abaddon's (the "devil" so to speak) point of view, which was cool & scary O_O
Yes, this book had higher stakes and a lot more characters we meet. I really love how the author can make so many characters that make me wish they were real because they sound like really interesting people to meet. There are some you like seeing again like Henry (now a warrior class angel) and Marcus & Taryn (whom are now teachers). We also meet some kinda mean characters like Fredrick, whom I didn't like much because I don't think he took things serious at the start BUT after reading the entire book, I felt he changed and he did and saved Jonah's life.
I liked the idea of "Angel School", it made it more real to the kids that they were fighters and A lot of things happen there. They get trained to use there skills and to also use the scripture and there faith as weapons too. Which is pretty cool. Jonah and his siblings grow more in there gifts and there faith.
AH! There is a lot of action in this book and the scripture is still incorporated nicely into them. There is still another plan to get rid of the nephilim and quarterlings. One thing i gotta say though, the ending to this book was so MUCH BETTER than the last one, well not better but more action packed and i did cry when a certain character "left", and we also learn something about Jonah that was like, "O_O I should have known" but really it was a GREAT ending to book #2.
Overall, this was a AWESOME continuation to Spirit Fighter and a great book to lose yourself in! Don't shun the series because it sounds religious because you will be missing some really good awesome action :D I LOVED this book and will be waiting eagerly for book #3! Great for MG kids and very enjoyable! 4.5/5 AMAZING STARS!
Totally AWESOME! My mind was stuck int this book for a while and it blew me away at times! READ IT.
