Kirstin Pulioff is a storyteller at heart. Born and raised in Southern California, she moved to the Pacific Northwest to follow her dreams and graduated from Oregon State University (Go Beavs!) with a degree in Forest Management. Happily married and a mother of two, she lives in Oregon, and enjoys being a stay at home mom. When she's not writing, she is busy with her kids, church and the family business.
An exciting, intriguing, and thought-provoking modern fairy tale, which magically transports readers into the fascinating world of a determined young princess who takes destiny into her own hands.
The Escape of Princess Madeline, written by Kirstin Stein Pulioff, is a beautiful little whimsical story about a young girl who rebels against her father's wishes and refuses to marry the man of his choice. This story reflects a fascinating era of old-time rulers, when a young woman had no voice or choice and must obey her parents.
Like any sixteen-year-old girl, Princess Madeline has her own dreams, desires, and views on life. Throughout the story, the author portrays her magical world with real promise. Since her childhood, Madeline has always craved new adventures and has never looked for support or protection from anyone.
Surprisingly, in this vibrant story, Princess Madeline appears as a very contemporary character, reminding us of how a runaway girl would act today. Freethinking, strong, and courageous, she tries to change fate games. When Princess Madeline sees the opportunity, she escapes her father's castle and finds herself in a strange place.
Outside the castle, she faces a dangerous world, but does not lose hope or get discouraged. Surrounded by dangerous people in the forest, she bravely deals with her troubles and rethinks her relationship with her father. Self-confident, resilient, and fast-thinking, she quickly learns how to take care of herself.
Feeling lonely and facing dangerous situations, she has doubts about the choices she has made. Freedom came with a price - she lost the family she loves. When she returns home, her father, the heartbroken King Theodore, comes to the realization that he must reconsider his decisions and let his strong-willed daughter make her own decisions and take control of her life.
Searching for her place in life, purpose, and true love, Madeline discovers herself, true love, and the value of family. The author wisely underlines the issue of runaway children, and invites us to look at closely broken relationships with our children.
Vivid feelings, defining our own values, having a sense of self-worth, uncovering the true meaning of family and love, forgiveness and self-discovery are great reminders to all of us. This is a wonderful teaching story, which wisely connects to the present day.
Princess and Knight, dragons and wizards, battles and danger - another intriguing story about the courageous Princess Madeline and her new adventures!
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 own hands games. In this second book, The Battle for Princess Madeline, she has become a fearless warrior, fighting for love, her 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 knows 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 her happiness to protect 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.
