“It’s not the shadows you should fear, but what hides within.”
Alaric is an enemy of Rome.
For too long he has thwarted the empires attempts to gain control over the land that has long resisted them: Germania.
To the Romans he is a scourge, always evading their carefully laid traps. But to the tribes he is much worse: Outlaw, chief killer, battle turner, Oathbreaker.
All men know him, all men fear him. At his back is a war host, on his shoulder sits Loki, the Trickster.
A deal has been struck between the legions and the tribes: lifelong enemies agree to become friends, for a time. The eagles march with the wolves, together they hunt the raven.
Isolated and lacking in allies, will Alaric be able to break free from the noose that slowly encircles him? Or will the Sly One once more come to his rescue.
OATHBREAKER: One man’s stand against the tyranny of empire.
PRAISE FOR ADAM LOFTHOUSE
“The characters are full of the life of the period, their flaws, their doubts, their abilities all on display; a feast for the readers” – HOOVER BOOK REVIEW
“No holds barred, vivid Roman entertainment, probably the next best thing to actually being there” – SPEESH READS
“A great mix of legion camaraderie mixed with a personal plot you can get invested in, add in a couple of big twists along the way and you’ve got a smashing read” – DAVID’S BOOK BLURG
A tightly woven tale of a tightly wound man. Alaric faces many challenges in this fast paced, page turning story, though as daunting and exciting as they are, the most challenging is Alaric himself. Convinced of his ties to the gods, of his own reputation as a warlord, he becomes blind to the pain caused by his actions. A deeply complex character combined with a plot replete with twists, turns, and surprises. Come along for the ride, my fellow readers, Rome doesn’t play nice with stubborn foes, Alaric doesn’t care too much about Rome period… ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
