The Victor by Marlayne Giron

An allegory tale set in the days of knighthood, chivalry and adventure. The Victor retells the fall of Satan, God's love for mankind, sin entering the world, and Jesus' sacrifice for that sin. The use of characters such as the King, the prince, the adopted son, the betrothed, the seraphims,and the banished seraphims and followers; will draw you into this wonderful truth of God's undying love for his children.
I enjoyed this book, and found myself deeply enthralled into the life of the characters and what was happening to them. I could definitely compare this book to the biblical truth it conveyed and completely related to the characters who represented mankind.
I would strongly suggest getting the companion lesson plan to complement the book. It definitely gave me insight into the representation of each character and the themes throughout the book. The companion lesson plan would also be useful if you plan to use this in a school/homeschool, sunday school or book study environment.
I would caution adults not to use this with younger children; unless you plan to edit some of the content. Some of the fight passages can be kind of grossly detailed; as well as some inappropriate behavior from the evil characters.
Overall, a great allegorical look at sin, its effect on the lives of mankind and the wonderful sacrifice of our Lord and his eternal love.
