- Slow start but 10 pages in and it is A+ by Mommydobson on 12/31/2016
So I started reading today so I could appropriately converse with my 12yr old that is reading it. The start was slow but it has really picked up and turned into a page turner.
- Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 7/2/2016
The Prince Warriors opens with brothers Xavier and Evan being typical brothers, which means sibling rivalry on steroids. There is an age gap and personality difference in the two that makes them sometimes appear to be like oil and water. Their conflicts are an ongoing thing until one day they are mysteriously transported into the unseen world. There they must learn to not only work together but fight side-by-side using the armor that they have been equipped with.
This novel is a must read for middle-grade boys (and girls too!). It is a fast-paced epic saga that captures the adventurous essence of boys while subtly teaching the importance of fighting the true enemy. I enjoyed the overall story. I found it entertaining and even downright funny at times. (I loved the momma!) But what I appreciated the most was the spiritual focus of putting on the full armor of God to fight the ultimate battle.
So many times we get caught up in fighting with those that aren't really our enemy. We see our kids in constant battles with each other. We see fellow Christians battling it out over doctrinal differences. All the while there is a more important battle being waged in the unseen realm that truly is life and death. The Prince Warriors uses those very facts to remind the reader of the importance of standing strong.
I would recommend this to any family that has boys. It is written to appeal to their need to be warriors. I do think that adventurous girls would enjoy it as well. I did. I think it would be a wonderful book to read aloud as a family. It would be entertaining and also teach a very valuable life lesson. That's a win-win.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
- Best new Christian series since Narnia! by MARSHA on 6/26/2016
If you or your kiddos are looking for a great read this summer, look no further. Priscilla Shirer's "The Prince Warriors" will keep everyone on the edge of their seats with intriguing adventures as brothers Xavier and Evan, along with their friends and unexpected characters, go on an amazing journey!
The Prince Warriors is the best new christian children series since C. S. Lewis' Adventures of Narnia. The next book, Unseen Invasion, will be available in October 2016. Priscilla Shirer has also written a corresponding devotion, Unseen: The Prince Warriors 365 Devotional.
My 9 year old and I truly enjoyed The Prince Warriors and recommend it for kids ages 9 and up. I look forward to the next book, Unseen Invasion.
- Great read even for an adult by Shannon on 6/20/2016
This was an excellent yet intriguing read. Even though it's suggested for middle school age kids, I enjoyed it as an adult. It certainly keeps you on your toes with twists and turns as to what will happen next. Right from the beginning you know it's going to be about spiritual warfare and battles. The mother tells Evan, her son, that no matter the battle you will always have what you need to win. That sets the tone for the whole story.
Immediately the two brothers Evan and Xavier draw you in with their normal sibling rivalry. The story almost immediately takes off when "Ahoratos" enters the picture. Is it a video game? Is it a dream? These were my first impressions as I started to read this book. Ruwach is a very interesting character as well. He is the guide for Evan and Xavier.
I love how this story intertwines the Armor of God. I highly recommend this book and cannot wait for the next one in the series.
- My 12 and 13 year old son's loved it! by Jessica on 6/9/2016
I originally was interested in this book for my children because it was advertised as being good for 8-12 year old's. I have 2 boys in that age range, as well as a 13 year old son who I thought might like the book. I started reading this out loud to my younger son before bed, and about 2 chapters in he said it sounded like a book that might give him bad dreams, so we stopped reading it together. My 12 and 13 year old sons read it and both of them loved it. They said it would be much better for 10 and up, with someone 15-16 years old possibly liking it.
This book is a really good example of a fantasy fiction, but with a Christian twist to it. My kids are avid readers and it is so nice to be able to find a book that can keep their interest, but also give them more insight into the battle of Good and evil that is happening all around us.
This book is highly recommended.
My boys cannot wait to read the rest of the books in this trilogy.

- My Son Loved This Book by Seasons of Opportunities on 5/14/2016
I haven't yet read this book, but I did let my son who is eleven read it. He was so excited from the very first chapter. He finished it in two to three days and was eagerly asking when the next book in the series was coming out. He was quite saddened to know it wouldn't be until fall. He also was ready to look up the website for the PrinceWarriors book and read all the information available which includes secret insights and other awesome things.
He proceeded to give me a chapter by chapter breakdown of the story when I asked him to summarize the book for him, so I cannot include that here or it would be and extremely long review. What I can share is that he said this was the "best book he has read so far" and he reads alot! He did share that the book was about some kids that think they live in the real world only to find out their world is just another reality and they have a chance to actually experience the real world. He told me there are things in the book that have spiritual connections to the Bible. He was able to discern those points of interest. He also loved the armor. He kept saying he wanted one like that!
So as you can see the book is a huge hit!! And we are breathlessly (oh yeah not breathlessly, pending passing out) awaiting the next book. I cannot wait to read it myself as he has now totally peaked my curiosity! Knowing what I know about Priscilla Shirer and her books (some of which I have read myself) I am sure this is one book you could not go wrong getting.
I was blessed with this book by B&H Publishing Group in exchange for my honest opinion.
