The previously-banished Lucius is industriously luring people away from King Eloth through lies and deceit, and he also intends to steal his the King's son's bride. The King's son, Joshua, meanwhile, bravely fights for the Kingdom of Ellioth with a general and specific benevolence-for his people and his beautiful, betrothed Llyonesse. A straightforward allegory of the love-story of the Gospel. Ages 9-12.

...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 as the victor in this epic struggle between good and evil to govern the lives of hapless men?
The plot is intriguing with its new setting and point of view, but it falls short in several aspects. None of the characters is ever fully developed, but instead remains somewhat flat and predictable. There are several instances where improbabilities occur, and the formatting for the entire book is rather erratic with entire paragraphs in italics and multiple exclamation marks within a single monologue. In addition, because the plot is an allegory, its ending is obvious from the start, and the storys developments are all expected.
Though The Victor effectively reflects the themes of Bible verses like John 1:11He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive himits other weaknesses may deter readers from true enjoyment of the story. But those readers who are able to look past the outward problems to the heart of the story may still gain refreshment through the familiar tale of a loving King who comes to save His people. -- Ruth Anne Burrell, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
