Review

You cannot run from the nature to protect. Leaping to protect his friends, Luke will learn what it means to be a warrior and that it's more than training. "A Warrior's Soul" is a fine and exciting read for younger readers, highly recommended.--Wisonsin Book Watch (Midwest Book Review), September 2011.

I would recommend this book to people who like stories in which the character must gain the courage to do what is right. In the book, Luke agonized over this, and I found that I could somewhat relate to him. "A Warrior's Soul" was an inspiring book, and I finished it soon after I started it.--Readerviews.com, August 12, 2011

"Staley's novel is a fast-paced, enjoyable read that delivers not only action, but also offers insight into how martial arts training can influence young people's everyday decisions." Donna Meredith, Midwest Book Review (Donna's Bookshelf), January 2012.

"Staley's gritty and gripping story brings to life the kind of dilemmas today's kids can face on a daily basis. He also provides important lessons for how martial arts training can become a touchstone in finding our way through life. Bullying is a dirty blight in our society, and Luke's story doesn't shy away from the threats they pose to boys and girls, and the adults in their lives. I enjoyed reading the martial arts action scenes, which are believably intense. As founder of the To-Shin Do martial art, based on Japan's historical ninja defensive combat principles and techniques, I am personally excited to see A Warrior's Soul illuminate the impact of modern-day bullying, martial arts, and personal growth."

-- Stephen K. Hayes, Black Belt Hall of Fame, Founder, To-Shin Do Martial Arts



From the Author

"A Warrior's Soul" was inspired by watching my son, then a middle scholer, learning martial arts. As I watched him train, I realized the self-defense techniques he was learning on the mat were very useful. But I wondered: Would he do the right thing with these skills if he were in a situation where he had to use them? The book grapples with this moral and ethical challenge within the context of bullying. I also really tried to emphasize the authenticity of the martial arts techniques. So, while the book is not intended for martial artists, I think they will appreciate the realism that drives much of the story. I also hope adults, particularly parents, will find "A Warrior's Soul" a good read. Bullying is not isolated to the world of our kids; we are inextricably linked to this problem as well. We also need to grapple with the question of when, and how, to step up.
