- Martha Bryce

Three seemingly unrelated events collide to change the course of history: A Roman slave with a serpent tattoo uncovers his true barbarian identity... A battle for power among Frankish warlords leads to a mass exodus across the Rhine... All the while, Marcus Aurelius' Roman army pushes further north, changing everything.

In the background, the ageing witch Chlotsuintha predicts it all. Or is she the one pulling the strings to shape her people's future?

When Sextus escapes Rome with a pocketful of gold and a knife, how could he even have dreamt of what the fates might have in store for him?

Pursued by Roman soldiers for the murder of his master, Sextus enlists the help of a retired gladiator, and falls in love with the gladiator's niece. An invading German army drives them further north, where Sextus discovers his true birthright, and his real name - Galdir. He becomes caught up in a bitter feud as one of the heirs of a dead Frankish warlord; but the blood feud must be put aside when the Romans invade and besiege the Frankish capital.

'Galdir' is enthralling Roman Empire fiction - a tale of love, brutal battles and conflict, in which a mystical prophecy winds its way through an epic saga of struggle against Rome, and the consequences of resistance by the Frankish people, its Warlord and its witches. The saga continues in Galdir - Rebel of the North, and Galdir - Protector of Rome.

"Vivid storytelling... This is a great book for everyone who likes stories about the Roman Empire and for those that like great action and adventure books."
- Mariv Photography

"If you're looking for an adventurous, suspenseful, and interesting book, I would highly recommend Galdir: A Slave's Tale by Fredrik Nath."
