Description
Book One in the King Raven Trilogy promises to be a blockbuster. Hood is a completely re-imagined story of the man known as Robin Hood - told in a far more earthy, eerie, and elemental way than ever before by the master of British, Welsh, and Celtic historical fiction, Stephen Lawhead. The Robin Hood legend has popular appeal, as is evidenced by many theatrical and television releases of the story, and Lawhead brings the legend to life.

Follett step aside!
I am just loving this book! Well written and great storyline! I have tried to read Ken Follett's books but have been offended by the violence and sexual content. Lawhead is every bit the writer/storyteller and leaves out the offensive stuff! Thank you.

An interesting twist on an old tale
It's a long time since I've read Stephen Lawhead so I enjoyed getting reacquainted with him and, overall, I enjoyed this audio book. Lawhead gives the quintessentially English folktale a unique twist by making Robin Hood, or Bran ap Brychan, a Welsh prince robbed of his throne by Norman invaders.

The tale is perhaps is a little slow in places, and the place of the maid Marian in the tale doesn't become clear and until the end, ready for the next book, but overall it maintains interest. My biggest disappointment was that the ending seemed quite sudden. After things moving along at a certain pace, matters resolved very quickly in the final scene. However, it does set itself up for the sequel.

It's well narratedby Adam Verner, who I hadn't heard before. The end of the book includes an interesting apologetic for making Robin Hood Welsh - some interesting history about the development of the legend.

Much like his retelling of the Arthurian legends, Stephen Lawhead once again, does a masterful job of retelling a classic legend. Lawhead fills your head with the sights and sounds of the British Isle like someone who has walked the paths and discovered the secret haunts of Robin Hood himself! Narrator Adam Verner does a superb job of capturing the language and rhythm of this classic tale.
