Review Quotes

GREEN YETI MEN!

DINOSAURS!"

"Now, let's talk about what we really wanted to talk about: Martin. Martin is one of the coolest, most awesome characters we've read about this season."

The Oasis King by Mark David Pullen is a straight-up Kaiju novel! We were not expecting that, but were pleasantly surprised.

"So, what is this book about? Well, despite its wild, fantastical concept, it's actually quite digestible and understandable.

In this book, a group of boys, all cousins, discover a mysterious place called the Valley. the Valley is full of exotic, strange, big, and powerful creatures, some of which seem to be from the Earth's prehistoric past. This book reminded us a lot of Terra Nova or Primeval." -The Outstanding Creator Award

This book was enjoyed by myself (an adult who can't wait for the next book) and my 8 and 5 year old sons. Together we loved it my boys would ask every night after school to read it only took us 4 days. It is so well written in a way even my 5 year old could understand and couldn't get enough. Dylan Jace and Trip inspire my boys, all my sons could talk about was going on an adventure the way they did. We love this creative adventure seeking story. We are looking forward to the next read!!!! This book is great for all age groups!!! My son is going to take a copy to share with his 3rd grade class!

Wow - A Whole New World! This book is fantastic, I can envision children, pre-teens and even some 13 and 14 year olds enjoying this story. The boy cousins are energetic, fun-loving and bright and will be relatable to kids reading this. The Oasis setting is phenomenal and so imaginative - I loved reading the descriptions of the landscapes and the inhabitants. The adventure is compelling and sucks you right in. Yes, it is juvenile fiction and I generally read adult fiction but who am I kidding? I love a good kids story and read them whenever I get the chance. This is very well written and I highly recommend. I am going to loan this to my grandsons (8, 14) and get their opinions. I predict they will love the book! I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review.

An Action-Packed Adventure

The Oasis King by Mark David Pullen is the first book in The Oasis Chronicles series. It is an action-adventure book for middle school-aged children, and it’s a clean, unique, and suspense-filled story with an underlying faith message throughout. I loved the adventurous spirits within the boys and seeing the Valley of the Oasis through their eyes. This dangerous paradise was thrilling to journey through with primal predators, ambitious villains, and unsolved mysteries that kept me turning pages until the end. And what an end! This story will have you begging for the next book in the series! Overall, I enjoyed this fast-paced story, and I would love for my boys to read The Oasis King, knowing it is a clean read full of fun and entertainment. It will inspire the imagination of all readers no matter their age. I was given a copy of this book by the author with no expectations of a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Riveting This book is excellent for the age group, for which it is written. But, as an adult, I LOVED IT! I think that both kids and adults, who don't really like to read would find it riveting. I know I did. It is written in such a way that you are almost transported into the Oasis. And, the characters are easy to fall in love with. Can't wait for book 2!

This book is a great kid’s book that I happened to enjoy - though not quite a “kid” any longer. The adventure the three boys took was action filled and pulled you in. If you’re looking for a fun story with a great message for your young reader, this is it. It’s the first of a series and I believe it could be the beginning of your child/grandchild’s love for reading. They’ll be asking for the next story as soon as you finish the last page. It’s a fantastic book you could read along with them - and you’ll both enjoy it. Highly recommend it.
