Plenty of action and supernatural wonder! My review of "Fire Prophet" by Jerel Law
If you enjoyed the first book in the series, then you are certain to enjoy this follow-up novel, one filled with plenty of action, tense moments, and supernatural wonder! As I read through the story, I found myself wishing that I had the power to see into the hidden realm, or fly through the air in the grasp of an Angel! Children are sure to enjoy the imagination and vivid detail that colors every scene of the story, and wish that they could join Eliza and Jonah in their adventures. There were a couple of places where I questioned why the characters acted the way they did. For example, soon after the children are attacked and arrive home with their guardian angels, the whole family drives off in their car. I couldn't help but wonder why, with a host of evil angels on their way to destroy them, the family wouldn't have immediately flown off with the angels instead of driving away. However, I didn't let such questions distract me, because in a crisis none of us would act perfectly! And also, I'm not sure the intended audience of the book would really examine such things too closely. Overall, the book is well written and sure to captivate the readers with the ongoing saga of the Stone family.
Really only one question remains – when is the movie coming out? The trailer for the book (see below) was enough to whet my appetite! I strongly recommend this book for children and youth, and award it 4 out of 5 stars.
