Publisher's Summary

The final installment of a completely reimagined epic of the man known as Robin Hood, told in a far more eerie, earthy, and elemental way than ever before. The story of Rhi Bran y Hud - Robin Hood - concludes as Abbot Hugo and the Norman invaders attempt to wipe out King Raven and his flock once and for all.

Their merciless attack, the first of many to come, heralds a dark and desperate day for the realm of Elfael. Bran and his few stalwarts desperately need encouragement and reinforcement if they are to survive. But Friar Tuck, a most unconventional priest, has a daring solution to their dilemma that will radically alter all we've known about the legendary figure known as Robin Hood.

Filled with unforgettable characters, breathtaking suspense, and rousing battle scenes, Stephen R. Lawhead's masterful retelling of the Robin Hood legend reaches its stunning conclusion in Tuck. Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Lawhead's trilogy conjures up an ancient past while holding a mirror to contemporary realities.

    "Another version of a good story."
    If you could sum up Tuck in three words, what would they be?

    Right over wrong.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bran. He is the foremost hero in the trilogy.


    What does Adam Verner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have little time available for reading so listening to audiobooks allows me to take in stories that I wood not otherwise read. Adam Verner's performance was well done and not at all a hinderance to my enjoyment.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I came close to doing that but one must sleep between work days.


    Any additional comments?

    I good and interesting take on a lifelong favourite. Part 3 of a good trilogy.

    Story
    "Ugh..."

    I love Robin Hood tales but by the time the series got to Tuck, I just was sick of it. The characters are all one-dimensional and the story has a repetative feel to it. The characters just continue to do the same thing over and over and continue to be surprised when it fails only to have everything magically turn around at the very end. Huge chucks of time are skipped over and there is no character developement in sight. I really wanted to like this set of books but there was just nothing in the story that was interesting or original.

    "Good Ending"

    I don’t want to write any kind of spoiler, but I would say this book wraps up the trilogy exactly how I wanted it to end. Lawhead definitely has a different spin on a tried and true tale.

    Actor/director/teacher. Split my time between Beijing and Seattle now. Listen to Audible on the subway and while driving. Love the reviews.

    "A disappointment"

    I read the first two books in this trilogy and enjoyed them enough to listen to the third. This was definitely the weakest of the three. The plot often included points which stretched my credulity past the breaking point. For instance, Marian does not hear of her father's death for many months even though he is a king and his castle is an easy day's ride from the greenwood? At the same time a Frank nobleman comments upon how quickly news travels among the common people.
    I was less than delighted with the narrator as well. He should have checked word pronunciations more assiduously and his dialect was sometimes ludicrous because of his extreme use of a broad "a" which, at times, turned Bran into something like "Bron." Still a pleasant enough story, but definitely a disappointment.

    "Final book in the Trilogy"

    These books have a very interesting and imaginative take on the Robin Hood story. A treat for anyone who enjoys tales of the Dark or Middle Ages.
