What other readers are saying about this title:
I had never heard of Stephen Lawhead before coming across this title at Costco, where the cover and title at once grabbed my attention. I was intrigued by the fact he set the story in Wales, and learned things I did not know about the primeval forest that was there. As to the story itself, A in my book. Good characterization and flawless pacing. Now one reviewer on Amazon thought it bogged down in the middle, and another thought the whole first half was something to be got through, but I had no such reaction to this work. He has managed to take the Robin Hood myth and make it feel brand new, and leave plenty to unfold for future volumes -- I, for one, can’t wait for those!

I have my request in for Hood! Since you like this, you should take a look at some of his other stuff: Dragon King trilogy (starts with In the Hall of the Dragon King)and King Arthur trilogy (starts with Taliesin). Really good!

Hood is an awesome book and it adds a whole new twist and dimension to the Robin Hood story. you wouldn't really know it a Robin Hood version unless you know it is. I would also recommend the Song of Albion Trilogy, which starts with Paradise War.
