" Fans of Erin Hunter will love this " said.

" A rousing and exciting debut. Part "Hamlet," part "Hunger Games," this original fantasy is both familiar (in a good way) and unique. High adventure and action, yet thought-provoking too: What is the role of story in our lives? Is there life after death?An engaging and instantly likeable narrator keeps the reader turning the pages. Looking forward to the next book! " said.

" An incredible story! I loved this so much! The unique race of cat-evolved people lends itself to fantastic characters in world rich in description. This is a great story for all ages and the weaving of mythology, both familiar and unfamiliar figures, creates an incredible backdrop for a wonderful coming-of-age story. " said.

"The Spinner Prince is the first book in the Pride Wars series. It follows Leo, the heir to the Singa throne, as he comes of age and prepares to take his place as the next great Singa Kahn. But many obstacles are thrown his way, including one in himself that he can't control. In a world ruled by facts, can fiction and faith find a place among those living in Singara?

This was a fantastic read. I was engaged throughout the book, and didn't find it predictable. I loved the cast of characters, and I loved that the stories included were based off of different parables from all over the world. I definitely did get some Lion King/Hamlet vibes, but with so many similarities, it's hard not to. I didn't really have any issues, with this book. It was a great read, and Leo was very relateable. I can't wait to read what happens next.

" If my students were picking up Hunter's new Bravelands series, I would definitely get this. I liked that one, but my students still just want the Warriors and Survivors series. Did have someone check out Seekers, which surprised me. " said.

I thought that this might be a new genre for me. A half lion/half boy main character? What an interesting concept and a way to get out of my YA fantasy book binge. I need to try new genres and expand my horizons... But then, when I began reading it, I realized how many of my favorite books were stories told by animals. Who doesn’t love the classics Charlotte’s Web or Black Beauty?

The Spinner Prince has parallels to the Lion King (or Hamlet, if you are a Shakespeare lover) with an element of fantasy. I wonder if these popular stories inspired the author, Matt Laney, to tell this story. Similar to Simba, Leo is heir to the throne and has a relative who is blood-thirsty and wants all the power himself.

Leo is a Spinner, or story-teller, in a society were logic, facts, and war is valued. Throughout the story, Leo tells short parables, or stories with a THEME, that relate to the conflict at hand. He must keep these stories a secret and only trusts his best friend Anjali with them. I couldn’t imagine a place where stories are outlawed. Can you?

Overall, this book is EPIC. The synopsis above really only reveals about 10% of the book. If you like stories that seem to never end (in the best way possible, of course) this might be a good fit for you.
