Publisher's Summary

A century since the departure of the Gods, the Three Nations are now united beneath the Tsar. Magic has been outlawed, its power too dangerous to remain unchecked. All Magickers must surrender themselves to the crown or face imprisonment and death. 

Alana's mundane life has just been torn apart by the emergence of her brother's magic. Now they must leave behind everything they've ever known and flee - before the Tsar's Stalkers pick up their trail. Tasked with hunting down renegade Magickers, the merciless hunters will stop at nothing to bring them before the Tsar's judgment.  

As the noose closes around Alana and her brother, disgraced hero Devon finds himself at odds with the law when he picks a fight with the wrong man. The former warrior has set aside his weapons, but now, caught between the renegades and the Stalkers, he is forced to pick a side - the empire, or the innocent.

Funtasy with a dark edge

Audiobook warning!!

I received a free copy of the audiobook with the option of leaving an honest review. So here it is.

A mere hundred years after the events of the Sword of Light Trilogy, and the Three Nations are finally at peace under a new ruler known as Tsar. But things are not as they seem. Wielders of magic are hunted down by the Tsar's army of Stalkers. Alana and her brother Braden are such wielders, and are forced to run but the Stalkers are never far behind. When they meet Devon, a former hero now deemed a coward, they get some unexpected help. However, with the Stalkers not far behind, can they make it to the Northlands and freedom from the Tsar's edicts?

This is a fun story, a worthy follow up to the Sword of Light. The characters are likeable, with some hidden depth. Who is the Tsar? Is he the leader the people believe him to be? Why does he detest magic, and where the hell did he get dragons from? Why does the leader of the Stalkers, Quinn, know so much about Alana? And can Devon overcome his guilt to fight the good fight?

Not all is revealed in the first in the new trilogy, but it definitely develops an interest in reading/listening more into the series. The narrator, who I believe without bothering to check, is the same guy who did the Sword of Light, and he does a masterful job.

If you liked the Sword of Light, or you like fantasy with characters with a good back story, then Oathbreaker is definitely worth your time.

Another great Book!!

Aaron Hodges does it again! I am a big fan and he does not disappoint! Oath Breaker is a very captivating novel. It picks up about a hundred years after the Sword of Light Trilogy but stands very well on its own. Well written, well developed, and great depth for both the characters and the world building. A few of the twists really caught me off guard and kept me wanting more. David Stifel once again delivers a great performance that keeps the listener engaged. He is the perfect narrator for Aarons work.

Although this book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review, I am anxiously awaiting the next books in the series.

I loved it more then I thought I would.

With books that have dragons, I found they are hit and miss in whether they are intriguing enough to hook me and keep me reading to the end. I was pleasantly surprised with this one. The author is a good writer, he gave us enough information about the characters to form a connection and he knows how to inpart this information without boring us to death. I also found it a fast paced book which is my type of thing and it ends on a cliffhanger. I am dying to find out what happens next.
I would highly recommend it to everyone. There is no profanity or sexual content but there is some violence but it is not graphic.

Great book!

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a fantastic book. I haven't read/listened to the Sword of Light series that this book is spun off from, but I didn't feel like that was a problem. I was sucked right into the story and enjoyed the listen. I think that is due to this series starting a century after the first series ends. If anything, this book made me want to go back and listen to them. The narration was great and did a good job of holding my interest. In fact, I'm now interested in checking out his other works.

Attention-grabbing and enjoyable

My second read/listen from author Aaron Hodges began slowly but was attention-grabbing and enjoyable. The first book in the Legend of the Gods series. I look forward to the next book in the series. Aaron Hodges has moved up on my TBR list and since I own 8 books by him that won't be a problem.

Wonderful!

The Tsar has outlawed magic since the war. People need to be protected from wild magickers who can cause mass destruction and death with their uncontrolled abilities. Parents are expected to bring their children to the Tsar if they develop magical abilities. Once a child has been turned over they are almost never seen again.
Alana's little brother has developed magical abilities and she wants to get him out the 3 kingdoms so he will be safe. In their efforts to escape the authority of the Tsar Alana and her brother end up running with Devon, a disgraced, retired solider. He was afraid of his own strength when fighting and was afraid of that taking him over. They also collect Devon's friend the retired solider now barkeep and a priestess who has been living in the forest for years. As the group runs from the Tsar's Stalkers they are plagued by the unusual knowledge the lead stalker seems to have of Alanna.

This is a wonderful introduction to a series and I can't wait to read the next in the series.

A gripping adventure story you are sure to love!

I enjoyed this audiobook immensely.
The world is incredibly well crafted and the characters feel organic and involving.
The story whips you along at a pace that feels well measured and natural never hurrying you or slowing you.

Once I got started I couldn't put it down.

The narration is on point with real emotion and with an individual feel to each and every character which is saying something.

This book is a little special and deserves full time and attention, should be on every fantasy adventure readers list.
