Two princes wage the battle for eternity but The Victor has been known from the start…” The verses from Amy Grant’s “Fairytale” song (Father’s Eyes) were the inspiration behind my book, The Victor. — Marlayne Giron, author
I just finished reading this book for the second time and fell even more in love with these characters. It is beautifully written and held my heart until the last page was turned. I appreciated the Scripture footnotes and seeing the story play out of the Father’s grace & mercy, the Son’s love for His bride, and the victory won. Fantastic book! — Liz FitzGerald, LITHBTH Educational Services
Castles, knights, and kings. Drama, intrigue, and betrayal. Good vs. evil. Right and wrong. Choices and consequences. All of these tantalizing tidbits and more are expertly woven into The Victor, a riveting allegory of the greatest love story of all time. From the first page of the prologue, author Marlayne Giron quickly draws the reader into the medieval tale, making this a hard book to put down!– Krystin Corneilson, Product Reviewer, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine Read the full review at The Old Schoolhouse Magazine.
…In the rich tradition of J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, The Victor is an action packed adventure novel of love, friendship, betrayal and sacrifice set in medieval times. Girls will love the romance of rescued love while boys will devour the scenes of jousting, knights and battles. Using ancient literature as the template, The Victor teaches lessons of enduring love, loyalty and reward in an exciting drama laced with unforgettable characters — Lillian Jones, Library Media Specialist III, Laguna Beach High School, California
A true medieval fantasy, complete with knights, and jousting, and a damsel in distress, The Victor doesn’t read like an allegory. It reads like an action-packed historical romance, with a hint of the supernatural. The language and details are carefully researched, and fit a Medieval time period. Characters are well-developed and believable. And because the story is based on truth, it is both honest and compelling. –- Kathryn Frazier, Homeschooler
