Book Review

In The Prince Warriors and the Unseen Invasion, by Priscilla Shirer (with Gina Detwiler), the Prince Warriors battle their enemy, Ponéros, to stop his army of mechanical insects (called Ents) from bringing dissention and chaos to their world. It is the second book in the “Prince Warrior” series.

Plot Summary

In Book 1 of this series, brothers Xavier and Evan, as well as their new friends, Levi and Brianna, begin seeing a strange symbol. They recognize it from a book about a land called Ahoratos. Soon, a shadowy figure in a purple robe named Ruwach summons them there. He tells them Ahoratos is the real world, and in it, they are Prince Warriors. He fits them each with armor, starting with a belt labeled “truth” that holds everything together. They rescue a prisoner named Rook from Skot’os, where the enemy, Ponéros, rules.

Now, Ponéros seeks revenge. Ruwach prepares the kids for battle by giving them seeds to protect them. He also warns that possessing the seeds puts the Prince Warriors in greater danger. The kids aren’t sure they want the seeds. They’re also a little dubious that a tiny seed can save them from anything. Several get rid of their seeds, and one even tries to build his own shield. When the enemy attacks them in Ahoratos with his powerful, meteor-like Olethron, they realize only Ruwach’s seeds can become shields strong enough to protect them.

The enemy then sends killer Ents into the kids’ world. These are metallic insects that stealthily create divisiveness and chaos. Brianna gets caught in their spell as they urge her to tell lies and to believe the worst about the people she loves.

To save their world, the kids must close the portal between it and Ahoratos. They get help from Rook, Levi’s father and Brianna’s Grandpa Tony, who are also Prince Warriors. Evan wrestles with guilt after having stolen a key from Ruwach. When he confesses and returns it, Ruwach forgives him but warns there will be consequences.

After winning the battle and closing the portal, the children celebrate in their world. The angry Ponéros plots his next move.
