Publisher's Summary

'I charge you, Sir Alan Dale, with administering my death. At the end of the game, I would rather die by your hand than any other.'

England rebels. War rages across the land. In the wake of Magna Carta, King John's treachery is revealed, and the barons rise against him once more. Fighting with them is the Earl of Locksley - the former outlaw Robin Hood - and his right-hand man, Sir Alan Dale.

France invades. When the French enter the fray, with the cruel White Count leading the charge, Robin and Alan must decide where their loyalties lie: with those who would destroy the king and seize his realm or with the beloved land of their birth.

A hero lives forever. Fate is inexorable, and Death waits for us all. Or does it? Can Robin Hood pull off his greatest ever trick and cheat the Grim Reaper one last time just as England needs him most?

The climactic episode of The Outlaw Chronicles is the most explosive yet - but who will survive and who will fall when the final reckoning comes?

    "great end to a great series"

    it was bittersweet to say goodbye to Sir Robin of locksley and Sir Alan after all the adventures. Really appreciated the development of the characters, especially Robin, as they ripened into middle-aged men.

    "great ending"

    I loved this series and have listened to all of the other novels at least twice. The narrator was good, no complaints. I loved how the the book would lead the reader to beleive that Robin was about to die. I have to say a tear rolled down my eye when Alan was riding back to Westbury and he could see all those he loved that had passed.

    "Great ending"

    This has been a remarkable series intertwining historical fiction with the legend of Robin Hood, and the conclusion stood up to the challenge. Perhaps the best in the series (probably a second to that where Robin and Alan find themselves in the middle of the siege of Chateau Gaillard, which is one of my favourite novels period) the author and narrator each do fantastic work and I cannot wait to see where he goes next!

    "A Perfect Conclusion"

    Angus Donald brings his saga of the career of Robin Hood, as seen by his good friend Sir Alan Dale, to a perfect conclusion. Historical events, from sieges to battles, are folded into the adventure with skill and the action never lets up as we follow the heroes on their last great campaign. Plots and subplots planted in earlier books are neatly tied up and a few expectations are nicely twisted for the element of surprise, bit in ways that are dramatically satisfying. Donald keeps up a brisk pace throughout and delivers once more on his inspired retelling of a legend. Mike Rogers provides excellent narration and shows a great skill at giving his characters realistic and appropriate dramatic voice and accents. Highly recommended.

    "I shall miss Sir Alan and Robin!"

    I've now listened to all of Angus Donald's superb 'Robin' series. They are some of the best audiobooks I have had the pleasure of listening to.
    Fiction is woven into fact in a quite brilliant manner throughout. Amazing tales with brilliantly evil, great & good characters brought to life by excellent narration.
    I was spellbound throughout the whole journey.
    Angus is a seriously gifted writer and should be mentioned in a similar light to greats like Bernard Cornwell.
    It is rare to feel loss at the end of a series of books, however I'm feeling that right now....

    "The legend lives on!"

    A fantastic novel and last in the series (or is it?) of Robin Hood! Angus has a incredible ability which many authors fail to accomplish.....it is easy to make a reader fall in love with a character but it is not easy to make the reader feel every emotion of that character as though the reader is in the story himself! I urge you to read this book and the series! Guarantee you will love it!

    "A brilliant end to my favourite series"

    I had mixed feelings about listening to the last in the outlaw series as I didn't want it to end. What an excellent way to end my favourite series. It's the characters that really made this story for me. Yes the story lines and scene setting is first class but Angus has made me really care about the characters and what happens to them, as if they are old friends. I will really miss them and will read/listen to the stories again. The sign of a true classic!

    "A fitting conclusion blending myth and history"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Death of Robin Hood to be better than the print version?

    I have read and listened to all of this series - one thing missing from the audio books is the 'historical notes' I wish these would be included. That said the narrator breathes life into the characters and as most of my listening is done whilst driving I prefer the audio version


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Death of Robin Hood?

    Many memorable moments in this book hard to mention without spoiling the plot. I will remember Alan's 'Lone ride home'.


    What about Mike Rogers’s performance did you like?

    Mike brings a consistence to the characters and has the various accents mastered


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book did bring a tear to the eye but thats to be expected in an end to a long running series. I picked the first book Outlaw up by chance a few years ago and up to that point had not been a fan of the RH legends. However was instantly hooked on the added realism portrayed in these books and will miss Robin and Alan. I plan to re read/listen now.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a good ending and I look forward to seeing what comes next from Angus
