About the Book: 

“Not my iPod!” Jeremy Lapoint’s day plunges to record lows when Sid Lundahl and his crew stomp the only nice thing he owns-and Jeremy gets in trouble for fighting. With Dad in prison and Mom struggling to scrape by, Jeremy’s life seems hopeless.
Until he has this urge to … fly.

One leap and Jeremy soars through the air. With this and his other new-found powers, life is suddenly amazing, wonderful. Until a real-live demon chases him through the school hallways, terrifying him and making him a freak to his schoolmates. He’s the only one who can see the monster. Jeremy wonders if the flying thing’s worth it.

But during the chase, Asiel, Jeremy’s guardian angel, wields his sword and battles off the demon. Later Asiel explains that Jeremy’s a Nephilim: half human and half angel. Jeremy’s shocked. His quest to uncover how he got like this sends him to the Higher Humanity Institute where he meets other Nephilim like him along with a slew of enemies-both human and … not.

In the midst of his strange and dangerous struggles, Jeremy also receives the peace and love he’s always longed for but never knew. When called to lead an angelic battle for the truth, will Jeremy cling to the One who can win the war or let his old doubts and fears overtake him?

Fun, danger, friendship, mystery, and faith-along with awesome angels and demons-fill the pages of this exciting book. A must-read for kids (and grownups) craving adventure with a life-changing message.

My Thoughts:

This is an interesting new series for teens taken from a passage of Genesis;
When the Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. Genesis 6:4 NASB.

Jeremy is being bullied in school when he finds out he can fly. He doesn't understand how this is possible considering that he has never had any kind of special powers before. He is then introduced to his Angel trainer Asiel, who tells him he is one of 230 other Nephilim that are in Europe, Canada, and America. Asiel, also tells him that learning his battle skills are important because he will be facing demons in the spiritual realm and he needs to be ready for battle. Jeremy being more reassured, is accepted to Higher Humanity Institute for teens.

I think this is a great new series for kids 10 and up. Those who enjoy books like Harry Potter, Twilight, and the like. It has lots of action and fantasy that will grab their attention.
Highly recommended!
