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.
Book 2 of this series begins about a year after Jonah and Eliza Stone discovered they were part angel and had to rescue their mom from fallen angels. In this book, their younger brother, Jeremiah must also take up the fight. The kids discover that all of the quarterlings around the world are being targeted by fallen angels, after they were attacked at school. Jonah keeps hearing a voice in his head and seeing visions, someone is calling for his help.
All of the quarterling children are being called upon to train to fight the fallen angels and Abaddon in order to save the world. Separated from their parents, the children must learn to work together and have faith that God will protect them in the upcoming battle. Jonah, in particular feels the need to protect all around him as well as find the person who keeps calling to him.
What a wonderful way to introduce or reinforce Christianity and faith for younger readers! The battles were deadly, but not overpowering with gore. The gravity of the situations were apparent without being too intense, more like being seen through the eyes of young Jonah. Although infused with strong Christian fibers and messages, the overall action will enthrall middle grade readers who will identify readily with these kids! Well done from start to finish!

This is an interesting and exciting continuation to the series. It's full of action, adventure, mystery, and lots of fantasy. It's Christian fiction, so the plot revolves heavily on Christian ideas and themes - like God, prayer, scripture, and faith. The story is fun and fast paced without being too confusing for younger readers. The writing was well done and flowed at a good rate. I enjoyed the detail and description that the author put into the characters and the plot - it added a great new layer to the series. The characters were all pretty well rounded and easy to identify with, especially Jonah and Eliza. They have their flaws and weaknesses, which makes them more realistic. Overall, this is a great MG Christian fantasy series that kids of all ages will enjoy all while receiving a positive message.
