About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

The Victor: A Tale of Betrayal, Love, and Sacrifice by Marlayne Giron

The Victor

A benevolent king; his sword of power.
A ruthless traitor bent on revenge
and the faithful son who stands in his way
with the woman destined to share his throne.

Who shall emerge The Victor in this epic battle between good and evil to rule the lives of hapless men?


This is a deeply compelling story that will appeal to a wide range of readers. It is a medieval fantasy, rich in romance, and filled with Christian references, that is set during a time of knights, swords, and castles. Lucius is a rebellious knight who has been cast out of the kingdom of Eloith but he doesn't go quietly. Thus begins his desire for revenge with a campaign filled with lies, deception, and evil! Can he and his cohorts gain control and rule Eloith forever? Will Joshua, the King's son, be able to defend the kingdom and save the people from this evil rule?

Author Marlayne Giron admits that she was writing to grab the attention of teens, but adults will be just as fascinated with this book! Danger, adventure, and a sweet love story make it a story you don't want to miss, and I found myself eagerly turning the pages and highlighting passages that have hidden meanings. The Victor is an epic tale of good versus evil, and an allegory with characters that depict God, betrayal, and the sacrifice of Jesus. Believers already know the outcome of the ultimate battle between good and evil, and I can only hope that reading The Victor will convince others to want to learn more!

I voluntarily received a copy from the author. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
