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.

I voluntarily recieved a free review copy of this audiobook from the Author, narrator or publisher through AudiobookBoom.

Columbo meets the shield wall.

So I have mixed feelings about this book. The story line is a constant back and forth of he betrayed his father, but his father wanted him to, so he really didn't betray him, but his father betrayed him because he betrayed his father. in the end the main character lives in to betray someone else so that they can then betray him.

I guess the biggest issue I had with this book was the narrator. The narrator sounds like Columbo. This really took away from being able to focus and really enjoy the book.

I've purchased the entire series and I'm not sure that I'm going to make it through the whole series. I'm going to give book two a chance, but if the narration doesn't improve, I will be returning these.
