A little about Author Jerel Law...

He holds his undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (go Tarheels!), and a master of divinity degree from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Jerel began writing fiction as a way to encourage his children’s faith to come alive. He lives in North Carolina with his family. Spirit Fighter is his first novel.




Q & A With Author Jerel Law

Q: Describe your feelings when you opened the box and saw the first published copies of your very first book?

It was such a “wow” moment!  And very surreal.  All kinds of thoughts and questions flooded my mind.  I wonder if anyone will buy this?  It looks better than I thought it would!  And who in their right mind would trust me enough to print words I wrote onto actual pages?

It was a very rewarding experience.  Also, though, I realized quickly that it’s done.  The first one is finished.  It goes on the shelf, and we try to tell people about it and hope they buy it, and pray God uses the story.  But, it’s done.  So pretty soon after the fun and exciting thoughts, was the sense of, “Okay, let’s get to what’s next.”

Q: Coke or Pepsi?

Diet Mountain Dew. This delicious beverage fuels way more written pages than I’d like to admit.

Q: Soft shell or Hard Shell tacos?

Doritos Locos tacos from Taco Bell.  It’s a guilty pleasure.  (and they have fountain diet Mountain Dew…wow)

Percy Jackson, move over! Jonah Stone is here!

What if Nephilim-the children of angels and men-still walked the earth? And their very presence put the entire world in danger? In "Spirit Fighter," Jonah and Eliza Stone learn that their mother is a Nephilim and that they have special powers as quarter-angels. When their mom is kidnapped by fallen angels, they must use those powers to save her. Along the way, they discover that there is a very real and dangerous war going on between good and evil and that God has a big part for them to play in that war.

Summary from Goodreads:

"Jerel Law transports readers to a place where supernatural forces of good and evil collide. Young readers will be entertained and inspired . . . I heartily recommend it." -Robert Whitlow, bestselling author of the Tides of Truth series

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.

"Jerel Law has crafted a fantastic story that will leave every reader wanting more. Stop looking for the next great read in fantasy fiction for young readers-you've found it " -Robert Liparulo, bestselling author of Dreamhouse Kings and "The 13th Tribe"
