Greenwode: The Wode, Book 1 | [J Tullos Hennig]

Greenwode: The Wode, Book 1

Book One of The Wode. The Hooded One. The one to breathe the dark and light and dusk between…. When an old druid foresees this harbinger of chaos, he also sees whom it will claim: young Rob of Loxley. Rob's mother and father, a yeoman forester and a wisewoman, have raised Rob and his sister, Marion, under a solemn duty: to take their parents' places in the Old Religion as the manifestations of the Horned Lord and the Lady Huntress. But when Gamelyn Boundys, son of a powerful nobleman, is injured in the forest, he and Rob begin a friendship that challenges both duty and ideology: Gamelyn is a devout follower of the Catholic Church. Rob understands the divide between peasant and noble all too well. And the old druid has foreseen that Gamelyn is destined to be Rob's sworn enemy—to fight in a blood sacrifice for the greenwode's Maiden. In a risky bid for happiness, Rob dares the Horned Lord to reinterpret the ancient rites—to allow Rob to take Gamelyn as a lover instead of a rival. But in the eyes of Gamelyn's church, lust is a sin—and sodomy is unthinkable.

    "Disappointing doesn't cover it"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book would appeal to homosexuals who admire the writing style of the late Barbara Cartland.


    What will your next listen be?

    A book that is neither written by J Tulios Hennig nor narrated by Ross Pendleton


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Ross Pendleton?

    Any narrator well enough informed on English dialects not to play the residents of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire with a Scots accent.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Greenwode?

    The scene beginning at the top of page one and ending at the bottom of the last page


    Any additional comments?

    I think I hafve said enough
