Litfuse Blog Tour: Children of Angels by Kathryn Dahlstrom
“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.
When Kathryn Dahlstrom’s husband was transferred to Los Angeles, she traded Minnesota’s black-bear country for the inner-city and taught children at a Child Evangelism Fellowship Good News Club in Watts. She also began her writing career. In addition to writing six titles in the Good News Club children’s fiction series published by Child Evangelism Fellowship Press, the author is also a screenwriter and film producer.
Currently, she and her husband, Tim, live on wooded acreage north of Minneapolis/St. Paul where they care for her mother. They also have an adult daughter, Kristina.

Thoughts from Hero, my 11 yr daughter:
This book is awesome! It's a must-read! I liked how it was a lot like James Patterson's books. (Specifically Maximum Ride) My favourite part in the book was probably when Jeremy jumps of the roof of his apartment. There is SO many good/exciting parts that it was hard to pick my favourite. :D
My second favourite would be the part where Jeremy is going to HHI and his mom says "If they do something terrible to you, it's your own fault!" Their argument was pretty funny. I think if I were a Nephilim like Jeremy, the first thing I would do is run into a brick wall. Then I would disappear. Don't ask how I would do that, you should read the book before you ask. You'll understand when you read the book. I would recommend this to my friends (and I will) because a lot of them like fantasy books and a lot of other books I read. (Like Maximum Ride) I can't wait until the next book comes out!!! Overall, I would give this book an awesome rating of 9.5/10!
