Not so fast, one prince is determined to have her as his bride by fair or foul means.
So begins the next adventure, including a string of complications and unexpected revelations. I won't give away any plot spoilers, but the story has a strong sense of right and wrong, a gutsy heroine that you care about, and is written with such a command of imagery you can feel and smell the medieval atmosphere. Tweens and early teens are bound to relate to Madeline's on-going problems and her creative, outside-the-box solutions. If you or your child enjoy Disney-like stories, get the first two books in the series today. You won't regret it!
Preparations for the royal wedding are on track until Prince Paulson arrives, set on getting his reward. He demands Madeline's hand. Battle ensues, and Madeline makes an effort to obey the King's wishes before she talks her best friend Sophia into helping her escape. Since Sophia suffers the consequences, Madeline's immunity from similar trouble annoys me. But I doubt such picture-perfect love will annoy girl tweens.
Again, the magical elements make good entertainment as Madeline trains, and the legacy of her mother becomes more evident in predicting future events now coming to pass. We see more vivid descriptions to make the scenes lifelike. Then in stark contrast to how things would happen in the real world battle, there's no real damage to a main character and no death. I shook my head.
A way with words can only get a book so far. A good critique group would do wonders to correct a myriad of errors. But for those who can skip over or don't notice the problems, there's a good day's adventure in store with a message of peace and forgiveness. I liked how the author completed the story arc for this book and introduced another. Dragons! 3 stars with hopes for more in the next book. I was provided a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
One thing that I really like about this book is that there is more depth to the side characters. We get to learn more about Princess Madeline’s late mother, her twin brother, Braden, and her best friend, Sophia. We also learn more about the wizards, especially, Elias. I liked how we get to see how their personal conflicts and struggles. Another thing I like about this book is how Madeline has grown from the first novel. She is very reckless and does not heed the advice of others, especially her father. Yet, she is willing to sacrifice herself for the good of her kingdom. Therefore, I think that Madeline would make a great queen. The only thing that I did not like about this book’s characters is that Daniel made very few appearances in this novel. Thus, I did not feel that his character was developed very fully.
Overall, this book is about love, friendship, duty, bravery, and choices. The message of the book is to stand up for what you believe is right, even when others are against you. The world-building is much more developed than in the first novel. The only thing that I dislike about the book was the cliffhanger at the end. I felt that it was very unnecessary. Nevertheless, I can’t wait to read more about Princess Madeline’s next adventures. I recommend this book to those interested in original fairy tales, romances, and those who want to read an entertaining series of adventure tales.

A few months ago, I had the privilege to read The Escape of Princess Madeline by Kirstin Pulioff. Her first book was full of the delightful dreams of a young inexperienced princess searching for happiness and love. Since that time, Madeline has grown into a confident young woman ready to take destiny into her own hands. In this second book, The Battle for Princess Madeline, she has become a fearless warrior, fighting for her love, kingdom, and freedom. This is a thrilling story, full of delightful characters, tender moments, and glorious victories. The mysterious scenes revealing the influence of wizards and dragons take readers to an imaginary world filled with magic and superpowers.
The wisdom of the fearless princess will not surprise those who have read the first book. Once again, the daring young princess proves that in order to win, you must fight. Nothing can stop this brave princess. A powerful evil is threatening to destroy her love and her family. This is her life, her battle, her destiny, and she must fight for her love and happiness to protect her people from a dark evil.
The story is well developed and easy to follow. The vivid scenes will transport young readers into the magical world of fairy tales with thrilling characters that have come to life.
Another splendid read for young readers! I can hardly wait for a new book, Princess Madeline and the Dragon.
