Celebration quickly turns to disaster as Prince Paulsen returns with curious demands, either Princess Madeline will be his, or no ones. Rejection turns to obsession and battle is declared.
In a tense struggle to decide her future, Princess Madeline must choose where to put her trust… in the king’s tried and true plan, the wizard’s cryptic messages and maps, or her own sense of bravery. Follow Princess Madeline on this adventure as she battles evil in an attempt to create a future of love and magic.

Keep a dream journal…Sometimes wisdom can come to you in the most unlikely of places, and you never know where it will lead
Madeline is obviously a sheltered girl who literally lives the life “of a princess” and it shows. But she’s endearing. I love that. She isn’t annoying, nor is she a spoiled brat.
Part of the fun of reading a new book is discovering the characters and imaging them in your mind. This is my dream cast for the Princess Madeline series, and who I envision playing the roles. I hope you agree.
So if you have a TEEN I would recommend these books Highly or if your a kid at heart!
Here at JoJo’s Corner, we are huge fans of Kristin Pulioff, Princess Madeline and this series!!!
I enjoyed reading the power struggle between Madeline and King Theodore. They are both clever and just when you thought one of them outwitted the other, the other one did something to show they weren’t done yet. It was entertaining!
I love books like this. I really liked the plot and the way events unfolded.
Symbolizing the innocence of youth, and a desire for love, harmony and purity, Princess Madeline is my white princess.
The plot is well thought out and the storyline is great.
I have a thing for rainbows. The magical colors and sparkles add happiness to my life in an instant. With that in mind, I take care to choose my colors carefully, for the imagery they evoke, the symbolism they encompass, and the characters they portray.
I highly recommend this series to any girl with dreams of being a princess and it’s great for the entire family, too!
6/9 – Wonderings of One Person – Review
The Escape of Princess Madeline and The Battle for Princess Madeline by Kirstin Pulioff creates a beautifully enchanting and delightfully touching story of a princess who quickly goes from being a spoiled girl to an amazing woman.
6/10 – Wonderings of One Person – Prince Paulson
“Your Majesty,” he continued, “I am here to claim Princess Madeline’s hand in marriage. Surely you recall our deal?”
I guess I love fairy tales especially when there is a head strong and noble princess who won’t let anyone or anything hold her back from doing what she thinks is right. I love her sense of personal integrity and courage which is hard to teach or show kids but this book does it 🙂 Kirstin is a fabulous story teller and bard 🙂
Each portion of this world was created carefully, with respect to their colors, the imagery, and the feelings they evoke. I hope you enjoy the Kingdom of Soron, and the wonderful adventures.
A nice, short read about making your own choices… sweet and new.
Continuing the story of Princess Madeline and her royal family, The Battle for Princess Madeline was a short and sweet read. I didn’t have the opportunity to read Madeline’s first story, but I can absolutely say that this reads as a standalone just fine!
In this novel, we see the twisted side to self-entitlement and greed. Prince Paulsen thinks that he deserves Princess Madeline… We see how a pure and brave Prince turns obsessive because of his quest to claim Madeline as his, and it was sad to watch him turn to the dark side because of his greed. I actually really admired Prince Paulsen in the 1st novel, and it was sad to watch him fall from grace
Madeline’s story begins…
