After losing everything he owns, forester Will Scarlet embarks on a search for none other than King Raven, whose exploits have already become legendary. After fulfilling his quest--and proving himself a skilled and loyal companion--Will joins the heroic archer and his men. Now, however, Will is in prison for a crime he did not commit. His sentence is death by hanging--unless he delivers King Raven and his band of cohorts. That, of course, he will never do. From deep in the forest King Raven and his men form a daring plan for deliverance, knowing that failure means death for them all.

Prepare for an epic tale that dares to shatter everything you thought you knew about Robin Hood.
