History’s most dangerous outlaw.
England’s most famous ruler.
The year’s most exciting adventure.
The third crusade is over. Richard the Lion heart is bound for England. But with the princes of Europe united against him, can the greatest warrior in Christendom make it safely home?
The Lion is Chained. Captured. Bound. Imprisoned. King Richard's slim hope of salvation rests on one man - a former outlaw who scoffs at Holy Mother Church: Robin Hood. For King and country, Robin will risk all - from blood-soaked battlefields to deadly assassins - to see the Lion heart restored to his rightful throne.
From the internationally best-selling author of Outlaw and Holy Warrior comes a spectacular saga of courage and comradeship that brings the medieval world to roaring life.

"A very good story"
Held me right to the end lots of twists and turnes. Robin Odo (Hood) always makes a cracking tale
The grittyness of this tale makes you rearly believe in him and how it rearly was in those days and not all gentleman jim stuff. also what put the iceing on the cake for me was the narrator Mike Rogers
"The Kings Man (and Robins,)"
Overall not a bad story. Narrator has exactly the right accent for action taking place around Nottingham etc. perhaps not quite as good for the French characters, but not bad overall
"Easy to listen too and great story"
It was such an unusual combination of characters who became more and more plausible as the story developed.
I loved the imaginative way the author wove the legend of Robin Hood into the factual account of Richard the Lionheart's imprisonment and subsequent ransom.
No but I intend to!
Yes although couldn't so it took a couple of days
Thank you for including it in your list.
"It does what it says on the tin..."
If you like your Robin Hood Romantic then maybe not for you...
It is an interesting left field take on a great story.
I think that Angus Donald has a done a great job of bringing the period to life. He makes Robin a complex Mafia figure with international connections, always one surprising step ahead of his (mostly) loyal man, Alan Dale. The characters are well drawn and the battle scenes are great.
I am really struggling with this audio book. Although the narration is okay, the voice lacks depth for other characters. The story has a plot twist that I knew before it was revealed and the story is rather dull.
Im currently on the 3rd and final part and am pleased its drawing close to end
