My 12 year old read and reviewed this book. Here is her review.
I recently read and reviewed the book Children Of Angels , by Kathryn Dahlstrom, book one in the New Nephilim Series. Here is what I thought of it.
Overall it was not a bad book ; in fact ,I enjoyed it very much. It is about a thirteen year old boy named Jeremy who discovers that he is a Nephilim ,a Biblical being which is supposed to be part angel and part human. Word travels quickly about this ‘Angel Boy’, and he receives an invitation to the Higher Humanity Institute. He begs his mother to let him go and be with other children who are
‘like him’. But upon his arrival, he discovers that Mrs. Prouse , the headmistress, hates angels. None of the other children are true Nephilim ,because Prouse has injected their grandparents with a formula designed to give the grandchildren attributes of angels. Jeremy, along with his friends and an angel , must defeat the demons and Mrs. Prouse. They all have the power of the Lord Jesus, and yet the opposition is great. When the enemy drags their families’ lives into the fray, do Jeremy and his friends have the courage to stand up for everything they know and love, or will the enemy win ?
Please keep in mind that this is a fictional story and humans will
NEVER become angels. But Nephilim , however , did exist.
I received a free copy of this book for the purpose of review.
