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.
"Another Masterpiece from Alaric Longward!"
Hraban the Marcomanni has been cast out of his tribe by his treacherous father Maroboodus. He has lost his tribe, his mother and both grandfathers, and his fame and honor with the ones he loved. He has been lied to, he has been used to further his father's plots and in the end discarded, and his lot was to linger in slavery to Odo, a priest to Lok until he would die, having fulfilled the needs of a deadly prophecy.
"pretty good sequel."
During the era of Augustus, there is a wild, untamed land far in the north, where no Roman sandal has yet trodden, and there Maroboodus, the son and adeling of a Goth lord Hulderic, simmers with rage over the many injustices their family has to endure.
Maroboodus lost Saxa. Hulderic, his father, lost their lands and abandoned his weak-willed brother to fight their loss-maddened uncle alone. The Boat Lord, their powerful relative, was after their heads, and the Draupnir's Spawn, their famous family ring, is still what the man wants, having lost it decades past.
