Publisher's Summary

Hraban the Marcomanni has never met his father Maroboodus, exiled in far-away Rome, but this is about to change.
In the age of early Roman Empire, Augustus is creating his legacy with gladius as the legions begin the arduous work of subjecting the troublesome and divided Germani tribes.
Such great, distant issues do not concern Hraban, a young man bent on becoming a spear lord, giver of rings, a warrior praised in the dark halls of his kin. He is the Raven, and son of great lords. Yet his father's return to their burning village does not only upset plans of Rome and the scheming Germani, but those of Hraban, who finds the ancient virtues of his kin are very strained with strange morals of Maroboodus, his father.
Will Hraban find a way to survive the plots of his many enemies, serve his father, and keep his honor while entire nations struggle to unite against Rome and those who would betray the Germani?
The Oath Breaker is the first book in a new series of historical novels set in the dark lands east of Rhenus and fabulous, ancient Rome.

Another Masterpiece from Alaric Longward!

Alaric Longward has a way of taking history or mythology, making it his own, and create enthralling stories that always leave you wanting more. In this case, its the Marcommani during the Roman days, and Alaric creates engaging characters, and fleshes out a world that has to be read to believed. I cant recommend this book highly enough. Clay Lomakayu does an outstanding job bringing the characters to life, doing a great job keeping the narration flowing.

Good historical fiction.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Oath Breaker: A Novel of Germania and Rome to be better than the print version?

The narration, in addition to the writing, brought us into the story. Easy listen. Engaging story. I would definitely be interested in listening to any sequels, as I do enjoy historical fiction.
