Praise for The Prince Martin Epic

“Brilliant! Riveting! Heart-wrenching! Hopeful! Brandon Hale's delightful pen has once more crafted a story that will have you giggling, crying, and cheering as his endearing characters relay a tale rooted in solid truths certain to forge character and bravery into the youngest (and oldest) of hearts.”

Jenny L. Cote, Award-Winning Author of "The Amazing Tales of Max and Liz" and the "Epic Order of the Seven" series.

“Exactly what boys love and need. The Devil will tremble.”

Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., best-selling author of "The Philosophy of Tolkien: The Worldview Behind The Lord of the Rings" and "C.S. Lewis for the Third Millennium."

“The great G.K. Chesterton remarked that ‘Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.’ Brandon Hale does children the evergreen favor of providing adventures in which we learn the simple truth that dragons can be killed, heroism and courage are rewarded, and love and goodness triumph against wickedness.”

Mark Shea, popular blogger and co-author of the New York Times bestseller "A Guide to the Passion."

A rollicking good adventure that appeals to the heart and captures the imagination with vivid, virtue-based story telling. Both the young and the young-at-heart alike will enjoy this exuberant tale.

Patrick Madrid, host of the “Patrick Madrid Show” on Relevant Radio

Brandon Hale and Jason Zimdars have done it again. In this fifth installment in their epic fantasy series named after its hero, Hale’s poetic prose beats and rhymes with fine ballad-like effect on the ear. Zimdars’ illustrations arrest the eye with vivid images of creatures winsome and horrible. And good defeats evil in surprisingly plotted ways. It’s no easy, smarmy victory but one well-fought and grace-filled.

Ralph C. Wood, author of The Gospel According to Tolkien: Visions of the Kingdom in Middle-earth

Another riveting read in the Prince Martin series! Prince Martin and the Cave Bear is filled with themes that I want my children to ponder—hope amidst fear, protecting the vulnerable, fighting for justice… Every time we finish a Prince Martin story, we are already itching for another!

Katie Warner, Author & Editor of the FirstFaithTreasury.com series and A Parent Who Prays

Epic, timeless, and fun! As the mother of many sons, and now grandsons, I know how rare it is to find an adventurous book for boys set in a moral universe that projects virtue and right order. My youngest son grabbed Prince Martin and the Last Centaur and couldn‘t put it down.

Leila Miller, author of Raising Chaste Catholic Men, and Made This Way: How to Prepare Kids to Face Today's Tough Moral Issues (co-authored with Trent Horn)

A tale of courage and kindness with a little silliness thrown in. An exciting bedtime story, cleverly written.

Wayne Grant, best-selling author of the Roland Inness Saga

As dads, Prince Martin and the Last Centaur is exactly the type of book we want our kids to be reading. Adventure-seeking boys, in particular, will love it.

Adam Minihan and David Niles, hosts of "The Catholic Man Show

The ability to tell a good story well is one of the oldest and finest of the arts. It is also one of the most important of all the imaginative gifts. Brandon Hale possesses this most wondrous of gifts to a wonderful degree, weaving a tale of princes, heroes and dragons. Every child who enters the pages of this book will find themselves in an enchanting adventure full of the virtue that vanquishes viciousness.

Joseph Pearce, biographer, and author of Tolkien: Man and Myth, a Literary Life

The ancients knew that virtue is best learned through story, which is why I love the Prince Martin books. My kids enjoy the adventures and heroic battles and I like that, through the books, they are secretly forging their character, learning courage, fidelity, and sacrifice. This latest story, Prince Martin and the Last Centaur is another home run. Get it and read it with your kids!

Brandon Vogt, content director at Word on Fire and author of Why I Am Catholic (And You Should Be Too)

Here’s a gripping tale to be read over and over—a princely story teaching the values of integrity, courage, and resilience when facing a dangerous fear—a promised favorite in every child’s library.

Pam Kanaly, best-selling author of The Single Mom and Her Rollercoaster Emotions

Prince Martin and the Last Centaur continues the epic adventures of Prince Martin in a package that, as always, is brilliantly illustrated and richly told. The story is filled with bad guys and heroes, battles and adventures—enough to thrill the heart of any boy (or man). Best of all, there are moving lessons in virtue and friendship, kindness, and courage. My kids loved all four of the previous Prince Martin books, and they’ll love this one too.

Sam Guzman, author of The Catholic Gentleman: Living Authentic Manhood Today

"These books are not just for boys but for their fathers too. The Prince Martin tales instill in young readers - as one character puts it - a longing for 'wisdom and honor and truth.' As they hear these rollicking tales, boys come to desire these virtues for themselves. Prince Martin and his delightful companions - elf, dog, and wolf - bring to today's boys not just exciting stories but a vision of authentic manhood, and they bring to the boys' fathers the satisfaction of showing their sons what it means to be a man of 'wisdom and honor and truth.'"

Karl Keating, author of No Apology and founder of Catholic Answers

A charming adventure filled with the celebration of true heroism, Prince Martin and the Last Centaur is a perfect read-aloud for homes or classrooms to promote positive decision-making and growth in virtue.

Katie Bogner, author of Look To Him and Be Radiant blog

Telling tales of true adventure, especially to the youth, has become a lost art. Brandon Hale has found that art with his exciting and inspiring Prince Martin stories. Prepare to let your imagination lead you on adventures filled with virtue, discovery, and the thrill of the quest!

Fr. Daniel Mode, author of The Grunt Padre

The Prince Martin books are a must have for anybody desiring their young boys to grow up to be honorable and courageous men. In this series, Brandon Hale pulls off an amazing combination of rollicking rhymes, moral depth, and inspired world building. The fifth book in the series, Prince Martin and the Last Centaur, while fleshing out the history of one of the main characters and delving deeper into the mythos of Prince Martin’s world, teaches invaluable lessons on forgiveness and the possibility of restoration of even the most desperate of characters. Don’t miss these books!

Mother Melania, Abbess of Holy Assumption Monastery and children’s book author

A thrilling adventure story that teaches young readers the importance of such virtues as courage, loyalty, and discernment while also instilling in them a love for the sound and rhythm of words.

Louis Markos, Professor in English and Scholar in Residence, Houston Baptist University; author of On the Shoulders of Hobbits and The Dreaming Stone.

I love the way Brandon Hale’s stories frame a child-like sense of adventure in terms of love, loyalty, and friendship. The Prince Martin books remind us that the little wild streak in all of us is there for a reason.

Jonathan Rogers, author of The Wilderking Trilogy and The Charlatan’s Boy

A delightful tale packed with adventure, heart, and many surprises. Hale does it again with a story that captivates the imagination and teaches a very important lesson about true wisdom.

Philip Kosloski, creator of the Finnian and the Seven Mountains series

Very creative and cleverly written. Nicely illustrated. The kind of fun and meaningful stories kids will love to read - or have read to them.

Paul McCusker, author of Adventures in Odyssey and The Imagination Station

Prince Martin and the Cave Bear‘s humor, rhyming prose, enterprising characters and moral themes make for an excellent read. It will be for any young listener, or reader, an entertaining and thrilling story, with suspense, action, and plenty of adventure.

Donal Anthony Foley, author of the Glaston Chronicles series of Young Adult books
