Praise for The Prince Martin Epic

“Kids love rhyme, as they love bright colors. It makes a story memorable and special like singing the liturgy instead of speaking it. Brandon Hale masters the best rhyme scheme for children in these boyish, archetypal, cross-cultural, and timeless tales. Exactly what young 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.

“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!”

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“The exciting tales about Prince Martin and his delightful companions are not just for kids but for parents too. They instill in children a longing for wisdom, honor, and truth. As they hear these rollicking tales, kids will come to desire these virtues for themselves. Seeing their child’s delight, parents will be inspired to become for them the source of these traits. And parents will find rekindled within themselves the same delight they discovered at the same age but may have let slip away since. ”

Karl Keating, author of No Apology and How to Fail at Hiking Mt. Whitney.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.

“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.”
