Jerel Law. Thomas Nelson, $9.99 trade paper (256p) ISBN 978-1-4003-1843-8
Law dreams up an exciting debut novel featuring seventh-grader Jonah Stone, who learns to his amazement that he, his younger sister Eliza, and little brother Jeremiah are quarterlings: one quarter angel. He is the offspring of a nephilim, a half-angel descended from a human and a fallen angel. Immediately after he learns that, angels, and trouble, fly. When the children’s nephilim mother, Eleanor, is kidnapped, Jonah and Eliza are tasked with finding her in New York, where, with the help of guardian angel Henry (who looks like a teenager), they face battles for their lives and souls. Law negotiates well the balance between using a biblical infrastructure and making it sleekly modern and appropriately fantastical. There’s lots of action, credibly repellent evil creatures, characters young readers can relate to, moral fiber, and the promise of more adventure in the Son of Angels: Jonah Stone series. Law’s young quarter-angels are off to a flying start. Ages 9-up. (Apr.)
