Now, however, Will is in prison for a crime he did not commit. His sentence is death by hanging - unless he delivers King Raven and his band of cohorts.
Scarlet continues Stephen R. Lawhead's riveting saga that began with the novel Hood, which relocated the legend of Robin Hood to the Welsh countryside and its dark forests. Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Lawhead's trilogy conjures up an ancient past and holds a mirror to contemporary realities.

I love Jesus, dogs, cowboys, and a good mystery book
This story is very engaging and a fun listen. The narrator does an amazing job! He is good at changing his voice for each character and keeps it interesting.
cooooooooool this book was pretty ice I like Adam's voice and Stephen ' voice heck yeah
This is the second book of the King Raven series. I enjoyed it as I enjoyed the first. The only thing against it was that they're are sections written in first person which through me off for a bit. I can't wait to see how the concluding book unfolds.

Even better than Hood, I'd say. The reader is much better as well. If you have read Hood then it's definitely worth it to keep reading
A well-written tale utterly ruined by narrator Adam Verner. His reading of the dialog is corny and his style in general sounds as though he's reading to elementary students. I made it through the first two tales of this trilogy, but won't suffer listening to him a third time. I'll buy a hard copy instead. Truly sad.
I enjoyed Hood, but this one was hard to follow.
I didn't like the first person style going back and forth between the story and dialog with the scribe.
Scarlet as scribed by the monk Odo, told by William Scatlocke (Will Scarlet) is the story of how Will Scarlet came to join Rhi Bran Y Hud, Merian, Little John (Iwan) and Friar Tuck. and ended up in a cell awaiting his execution by hanging. The Sheriff is out for blood, after Bran and his men steal a secret letter bearing a message from the Pope, threatening to hang a boy each day until the letter is returned. Well narrated by Adam verner, Scarlet by Stephen Lawhead is the heart of the King Raven Trilogy.

The first book of this series was fine, but made me wonder if Lawhead had lost some of his magic...but in this book he got it back in spades. The reader is a perfect voice for Will Scarlet, who narrates the story, and telling the tale from Scarlet's perspective is engaging and interesting. I almost gave up on the series after book 1...but this book totally makes it all worthwhile, can't wait to check out the finale.
