Publishers Description

Robin Hood: The Legend Begins Anew

For centuries, the legend of Robin Hood and his band of thieves has captivated the imagination. Now the familiar tale takes on new life, fresh meaning, and an unexpected setting.

Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne of Elfael, has abandoned his father's kingdom and fled to the greenwood. There, in a primeval forest of the Welsh borders, danger surrounds him--for this woodland is a living, breathing entity with mysterious powers and secrets, and Bran must find a way to make it his own if he is to survive.

Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Stephen R. Lawhead conjures up an ancient past and holds a mirror to contemporary realities. Prepare yourself for an epic tale that dares to shatter everything you thought you knew about Robin Hood.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellent  Nov 19, 2008
Great read. I am by no means an expert on literature but I enjoyed this book. It is a bit hard to see the robin hood story at times but a great read none the less. Definitely worth purchasing.
This was a beautifully wrought tale!   Oct 7, 2008
I absolutely loved this novel. Now of course I am a former history major and a medieval/dark age "junky" so the material is right up my alley. But I love the weaving in of various languages, the well worked in view of the church and actions of the churchmen.

The language was beautiful, the descriptions grand, the dialogue very well done. I absolutely love "Aethelfrith" i.e. Friar Tuck. There is not much negative I can say overall about the book. I understand that for some there may not have been enough "action".

And don't come to this book looking for the traditional, almost "high fantasy" version of Robin Hood. I love the old Eroll Flynn movie as much as anyone - I watched it countless times growing up - but this is something grittier, more historically accurate to the times. There really just isn't much negative that I can conceive to say of the book. Very well done and worth a read.
New and intriguing retelling of the Robin Hood legend  Oct 1, 2008
The King Raven Trilogy, Book 1

I read this book based on the title and a review of it as a new and intriguing retelling of the Robin Hood legend without knowing that it was by an author who writes Christian historical fiction, and published by a division of Thomas Nelson books, a noted Christian publishing house.

And Lawhead, who has other series in this vein (on the King Arthur legend, starting with Taliesin: Book One of the Pendragon Cycle, and other Celtic cants), does a nice job of blending pseudo-history, pseudo-fantasy, mild Christian themes, action, and humor into the task of bringing together the cast of characters in the Robin Hood legend. Hood is envisioned as a left-for-dead heir to a Welsh kingdom in the late 11th century, just after the conquest of England (but not Wales) by William the Conqueror.

No classic here, but worth reading and continuing.
Epic  Sep 24, 2008
So creative! This book is an ingenious twist on a legend we all know and love!
Excellent reimagining  Sep 16, 2008
This is an excellent reimagining of the Robin Hood story. I really enjoyed the way that Cymry was used to show how the names would originate. It also makes a lot more sense why the Cymry would fight against the Norman invaders.
