                Jeremy Lapoint is the son of a convicted criminal, and the kids at his school make sure that he remembers it.  Jeremy, bullied by his fellow middle schoolers, tries to escape and suddenly feels the urge to fly—and with one leap, he does exactly that!  He discovers that he has obtained other powers as well including the ability to walk through solid objects and turn invisible just because he wants to do it.  Jeremy discovers, with the help of his guardian angel, that he himself is part angel—a nephilim.
                Jeremy is given a scholarship to attend a special school for others who have angelic powers like his, but the other children do not realize that they are nephilim.  They have been told that they are the next phase of humanity due to evolutionary process; however, Jeremy knows the truth and uncovers a plot of how the nephilim DNA was passed to each of the children.  He then becomes a leader among those who believe what he has learned, and he leads nephilim and angels against the demon warriors who want to distort the truth.
                Author Kathryn Dahlstrom’s fantasy tale is full of biblical imagery of angels, demons, and the battles that take place between good and evil.  Dahlstrom shows how Jeremy can rise up in faith and overcome his fears as he learns about the love of God.
                Children of Angels is a wonderful story for middle school-aged children that will help them see that there is an unseen battle going on in the world, which includes not only angelic and demonic soldiers, but also worldviews that contradict Scripture.  In addition, the story is full of examples of how those who reject the existence and love of the Almighty God will deviously work outside of common decency as well as the law to promote their agenda and false doctrines. 
                Although a work of fantasy fiction, Children of Angels is filled with biblical truths about faith, grace, and spiritual warfare.  It is a must read for middle school students who seek God’s truth of the battles—both seen and unseen—that Christians of all ages face each day.
                My rating of Children of Angels is 4 stars.

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
