I really enjoyed this book. It has enough differences from previous Robin Hood stories that it stays interesting.
I enjoyed the banter between the characters. Their emotional life was realistic
I enjoyed how Bran was changed by events that caused him to mature into a man.
The social injustice is the driving force of the book. There were still a lot of other things going on to keep the story moving.
If you enjoy Robin Hood. The sit back, relax and enjoy being in his world. This is more a story of how Hood became the man he was. It isn't alway pretty or comfortable.
I bought this book because it was on sale. I was pleasantly surprised to find a new author and his characters to love. May I have some more, please? The story was so well written that I cried at the funeral of the Mother Superior. I even cryed when the Red Knight's horse was killed. I cared about the characters. I hurt, struggled and triumped when they did. The narrator had perfect delivery. He went from an ancient nun to a rowdy solidier seamlessly. I laughed at the rough soldier humor and cringed when they cussed in front of the nuns. I really appreciate a villian that is written sympathetically and a hero that is written with a dark side. It makes the story so much more interesting. I really had doubts how this would end. At any time it could have gone several ways. If you enjoy swords, knights, and fantasy then you will enjoy this book.
This is the first book by this author that I have read/listened to. I found it very entertaining.
I found this story very unique. I would say this was like a cross between Laurell K Hamilton and John Ringo. It is dark and brutal but hilarious at the same time.
Bronson Pinchot does an excellent job. His interpretation of the characters really brings the characters to life. He captures the annoying slow speach of one while expressing the childish evil behavior of a young girl.
I don't think this story is about extreme reactions. It is just a wild ride from start to finish. I really couldn't figure out what was going to happen next or how it would end.
This was a very enjoyable experience. I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to escape reality for a while... for a long while.
I wouldn't recommend this book to a friend. This book was like a writer's holiday. There was tons of potential but it didn't go anywhere. I found it very disappointing. Even if it is the start of a series, the authors owe the reader something. This was a long set up to nothing.
I am a big fan of Mecedes Lackey. This is not her usual excellent work
I felt cheated and was glad when the book was over.
