About the book

A benevolent King;

...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 as the victor in this epic struggle between good and evil to govern the lives of hapless men?

My Review:
I found out about the Victor years ago and instantly wanted a copy. Medieval fantasy… my favorite! It’s a book that I don’t regret buying, or giving away to others. It’s a tale I think many would really enjoy and one that more people I believe, need to know about.

Yet, this is a tale that I recommend for mature readers only. This doesn't mean the book is bad; it just has mature topics in it that wouldn't be right for a younger reader. Graphic battle scenes, tragic graphic death scenes, mentions of alcohol, and one bad word (d*mn) used from what I can remember twice in it. I don’t normally like graphic scenes or bad language, but this tale wouldn't be the same if it didn't have it (perhaps the cursing could have been cut out ;-) )

The story theme is built on tragedy and the spiritual theme that is beautifully woven within will make you cry and touch your heart.

Marlayne Giron has written a tale that cannot be easily forgotten. There are very few tales that really touch me and The Victor is one of them.  The Victor is one you’ll think about long after you’re done reading it.

I HIGHLY recommend The Victor but only to mature readers.

Thank you Marlayne for sending me a signed copy… I will cherish it forever!
