Oathbreaker (Oathsworn Book 1)
|| The Wattys Shortlist 2018 || Added to Historical Fiction's "Historical Fantasy & Fairy Tales" reading list ||
* * * 'Be my wife.' The words were so quiet, Eleri wondered if she had really heard them. 'Please, Eleri. Be my wife,' he said again, louder and with even more intensity. * * *
Eleri, priestess of the Green Lady, has waited for so long to marry her tribe's champion, Celyn. Finally, the date is set for Midsummer's Eve, when the tribes have gathered in the valley to celebrate the longest day at the stone circle perched up on the hill. But nothing is as it seems...
A glimpse of a bird circling over the stones foretells of doom...and maybe even death.
An oath is made. An oath is broken. And Eleri's life changes forever...
"Oathbreaker" is a story inspired by ancient history, mythology, and the landscape. Set in the Iron Age, where there is no distinction between history and mythology, and where magic is as real as the ground beneath your feet, Oathbreaker charts the journey of Eleri, Priestess of the Green Lady and the unusual quest she finds herself forced to make...
If you enjoy historical fiction, myths and legends, fantasy, adventure and romance, you might enjoy this too...
Oathbreaker is complete but I will be adding chapters to the end of the story to explain some of the world-building information and historical detail.
Although there are elements of historical fiction within it, some might argue it perhaps more closely resembles fantasy. Have a read and let me know what you think... ;-)
