Publisher's Summary

Arrows will fly. Swords will swing. Heroes will fall. Legends will survive. And the Holy Land will never be the same.1190 AD: Richard the Lionheart has launched his epic crusade to seize Jerusalem from the cruel Saracens. Marching with the vast royal army is Britain's most famous, most feared, most ferocious warrior: the Outlaw of Nottingham, the Earl of Locksley - Robin Hood himself. With his band of loyal men at his side, Robin cuts a bloody swathe on the brutal journey east. Daring and dangerous, he can outwit and outlast any foe - but the crimson battlefields of the Holy Land are the ultimate proving ground.

And within Robin's camp lurks a traitor - a stealthy enemy determined to slay Christendom's greatest outlaw before the trumpets fade. Blazingly paced and richly imagined, featuring a cast of unforgettable characters and packed with fast, furious action, Holy Warrior is adventure at its thrilling, white-knuckle best.

    "A sequel that is even better than the prequel!"

    I really enjoyed Outlaw, although at times it seemed to drag just a little. Not so for Holy Warrior! Every minute of this book, I found engaging, entertaining and historically informative. I usually listen to these Audiobooks while driving too/ from work. I found myself almost looking forward to my otherwise miserable commute, listening to this book. Well done Angus Donald!

    "A big disappointment after Outlaw"

    I really liked Outlaw and tried to like Holy Warrior, but after listening for many hours to tiresome depictions of extreme sadism and battlefields slick with the entrails of disemboweled horses, I finally concluded that there was no actual plot here, so I stopped listening. It doesn't work as a travelogue or as a story. I would remember the first book with far greater pleasure if I hadn't moved on to the second.

    "My favorite of the series"

    For reason or another, I think this is my favorite of the series. It might be because the structure of the crusade gives me a linear line over Europe the map the events. In the other books in the series it takes a bit more efforth to locate the story.
    Highly recommended series! Note: if you are a new listener, go find "Outlaw" book from the same author. It is the first on this series.
