The story of Salvation like you have never heard it before!
In a kingdom divided, who will be The Victor?
The book starts out with the Baron Lucias so consumed by Jealousy that he has rebelled against the King, stormed the kingdom and stolen the King’s sword “Ephal”. When the rebellion goes awry and he along with his men are captured, the King banishes them from the Kingdom.
Once again, this was a book I couldn’t hardly put down. Even though I already knew how the story would end, I loved how it played out. Suspense, action, thriller, romance. This book contains it all. Marlayne Giron began writing this book 30 years ago and like a fine wine, time has perfected it. (Gives me hope for those sad and forgotten manuscripts in my drawer!)
Allegories are so much fun to read. Often they are set in a different time and place and are a fun story to read. But, if you read deeper and think harder, you will began to see another story emerge. Such is the case with Marlayne Giron’s book, The Victor. This is a book that should definitely be added to your reading list. I give it five stars!
A Peek at The First Page
An icy wind streamed over the hilltop from the nearby sea, chilling the sentries who stood watch from high atop the castle’s battlements. Below them in the dark courtyard a solitary figure in hood and cloak ducked under a stone archway, shouldering open the door to the gatehouse. “Greetings on this frigid morn!”he nodded to the frowning guard, throwing back his hood. He withdrew a small leather wineskin, uncorking the stopper with his teeth.
Segrid, what are you doing here at this ungodly hour?” Thaddeus scowled, pushing away the skin. “You know drink is forbidden upon the watch!” Segrid’s hand flashed out and caught hold and with a violent yank, he pulled the guard forward into his dagger, impaling him. Thaddeus’s eyes stared at him in horrified surprise then he slumped lifelessly onto the floor.
Baron Lucius of North Umberland waited anxiously under the nearby boughs of surrounding trees staring intently at the slowly lowering drawbridge in anticipation.
Marlayne Giron is a Messianic Jew who found Christ as her Messiah at the age of 17 while watching Franco Zefferelli’s “Jesus of Nazareth” on television in 1977. After coming to faith, she began to read the Old Testament for the first time and was amazed to discover that believing in Jesus was a very Jewish thing to do and not a betrayal of her Jewish religion as she had been taught by her parents and the rabbi’s in her synagogues.
