Title: The Prince Warriors
Author: Priscilla Shirer
Publisher: B & H Kids
My rating is 4 1/2 stars.
The Prince Warriors is about a group of kids who are caught up in a spiritual battle in another world called Ahoratos. In our modern world, the kids have inner struggles going on in their lives: the brothers Xavier and Evan keep fighting, Levi does anything but the right thing; Brianna will tell a lie and so on. During one day they are magically transported into the world of Ahoratos where a spiritual battle rages. A dark prince named Poneros leads his minions of chaos against those who have been called to serve the Source who is the creator of all things. The kids go through many trials and temptations and along the way they the meaning of truth, forgiveness, and doing the right thing for others.
I like this book because of its nonstop action and adventure and its good representation of the spiritual battle that goes on in our world. The Source represents God, who calls humanity to Him; and Poneros who represents the one true enemy: Satan. It shows important Bible lessons like not leaning on our own understanding, but relying on God in all things. Of the spiritual battle that goes on inside us and how Satan wishes to keep us from serving God with all our hearts and forgiving our enemies showed up briefly near the end. Because the story takes so much of the lessons that the Bible speaks of and the consequences of not following them and putting them in a fictional story, I would recommend this book to others. Also, I recommend this book because of its action and adventure and its cast of interesting characters facing different problems, how they learn valuable lessons in the other world about themselves, and how they take what they have learned back into our world.
There were at least one or two elements in the story that are very similar to The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. Kids taken into another world that is beset by an evil force and when they get back to their own world, they are set at the time in which they left it. Other than that and a few minor things, the story was really good, so I’m looking forward to book 2: The Prince Warriors and the Unseen invasion. Thank you for reading this review. Have a good day and God bless.
