Reviewed by Amy Louise Hill for Readers' Favorite

The Great Victor: Love Never Fails by Manuel Becker is a religious book for children. The story follows a young farm boy named Adam who begins to doubt his loving ruler, King Abba, after being fed lies by an evil man named Malus. Malus coaches Adam into the darkness by pushing him to eat one of the king's forbidden fruits. The fruit causes Adam to feel the darkness take full control over him and soon he becomes as hateful as Malus and his guards. More and more of King Abba's people turn to the dark side and betray him, leaving Adam feeling as if all hope and light is gone forever. How could his king ever forgive him after his betrayal? Surely, there's no way of going back, or is there? The king's son, Joshua, takes away some of the darkness and releases the hold Malus has on Adam, allowing him to choose between going back to his loving and caring King Abba or staying with the evil Malus the Magnificent. With everything on the line, what will Adam decide? Find out in The Great Victor and learn the important messages the author has included.

Author Manuel Becker has done an amazing job of telling the story of God and how he will always love and forgive no matter what dark path you find yourself on. The Great Victor will teach children the many lessons they will need in life and they will also enjoy a beautifully written story. The story was engaging and entertaining, which will help keep the young reader's attention. I feel that you don't necessarily have to be religious when reading this book because children can still learn from it. I enjoyed this book very much, and I wish author Manuel Becker all the best in his future writing. Keep up the good work!
