Breo: The Celt who challenged Rome
by Francisco Narla

THE CELTIC WHO CHALLENGED ROME. His father had started the journey, but he was betrayed. He, however, took refuge on the coast, far from the clans; He only wanted to sail to the green islands of the north and follow in the footsteps of the ancient legends. But his people were dying, enslaved in the greatest gold mine of almighty Rome. A witch from the Order went looking for him. A young woman destined to lead men believed it possible. And, among the luxuries of Rome, drowned in wine, drowned in its excesses, Nero cried out for revenge and howled for absolute conquest. Never before were such a number of legions gathered. The slogan was to kill anyone capable of holding a weapon. And that was when lineage and inheritance forced him to fight. There was only one way out: finish what his father had started. To rebel. Together they would stand up to the most powerful empire of all time. Niske united the clans. And at last Breus defied Rome.
