His lot is that of a spy, and a killer, as his band of Germani Custodes Corporis seeks clues to guard the life of Tiberius, who is an exile in Rhodes. If they succeed, his family will be released, and Rome will change for good.
Yet, long years of treading paths of servitude have left Hraban tired of being the victim to the mighty. Knowing full well no word of his wicked mistress can be trusted, Hraban finally takes route that is of his own making. The terror and deceit he intends to deal to his enemies is cleverly planned, but such a path will finally push Hraban away from his pursuit of fame, off the quest of clearing his name, and perhaps far from his hope to gain revenge on the killer of his family and Drusus. He might be left with power enough to choose his own destiny, should he survive, and succeed.
Will Hraban’s desperate plan give him what he most yearns for, or will it indeed cost him his life, his honor, his friends, and indeed, even the family he hopes to protect?
The Bane of Gods is book number five in the continuing saga of the Hraban Chronicles, and will take place from Rome to Armenia, and from the limes of Illyricum to the depths of Germania, where Varus meets his fate.

Konrad commits his soul to the devil to find the man
In 1283, a great war is brewing in Germany over the succession of the Duchy of Limburg. The Luxembourgs and the Brabants are locked in a power-struggle in an era when the German Dukes and Counts settled their scores in a battlefield, and any family might grasp the crown of Germany. Konrad, a minor knight in the service of the Luxembourgs loses his wife to a mysterious killer. Despairing, he commits his sword to war, and soul to the devil. Working for Adolf of Berg, the killer and Konrad are locked in a game for the devil, and their struggle might even determine which great house wins the war. Setting his men against mighty Adolf of Berg and his sinister servants, Konrad must choose between the devil’s favor and the love of a virtuous woman.
Will Konrad defeat Adolf and his servants with devil’s help, or will he find serving his lord and new love is enough of a reason to break his oaths to the Old Serpent?
The Wolf and the Lion is the first book in a brutal historical action and adventure fiction series set in the Medieval Europe and Germany.
Question: What is different about the Wolf?
Alaric: Different? I guess many of the elements one would love in other historical fiction stories are all there. It’s a brutal tale with well-developed characters, no real heroes, and life is cheap. There are plot twists and surprises along the way. What is different, is the setting. My books generally take place in the places other authors rarely cover. This book series, like the Oath Breaker and Maroboodus, mainly takes place in Germania, or the many Counties and Duchies of Medieval Germany, rather. Of course, I have a unique style of writing as well, and perhaps the battles are more gripping than some. Also, there is an element of mystery to my books, and it is often hard to guess the ending.
Question: What authors do you love?
Alaric: Bernard Cornwell. His work is on a different level form the others, and he covers time periods I love. I try to take my stories out of Britain, and into new areas, as I explained. Steven Pressfield is another of my favorites. Gates of Fire is a masterpiece. Then, some classics, like the great Henryk Sienkiewicz.
