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. Prepare to hear an epic tale that dares to shatter everything you thought you knew about Robin Hood.

A Good Ending

This book made a good ending to the story. This book focused on Tuck and his roll. There wasn't much to focus on, however, since he did not have much of a roll at all. He did play key parts that should be noted, but as also took part in deceptions that are not becoming of a man of the cloth. Some of these deceptions could almost be considered sacrilegious. The story itself holds little resemblance to the Robin Hood we know and love and would lose nothing if any mention or allusion to the classic tail were removed from it. The ending was enjoyable if not believable. In my opinion if a story telling device cannot stand on its own and must be backed up by historical fact, it should be rewritten. The epilogue seemed to serve no other purpose than to show how this story was changed into the classic Robin Hood. As a result I cannot get behind this as a Robin Hood story but can enjoy it as a King Bran (Rey Bran) story.

A Well-Crafted, Satisfying End to a Great Series

Thus epic and brilliant trilogy deserves a spot on the shelf of anyone who values contemporary literature that is actually worth reading. Tuck, the third and final entry of this unique take on the legend of Robin Hood, delivers an end betting the quality the first two demonstrated. The reader was also a pleasure to hear.

Great story and VERY well read.

This is a captivating story and the reader does an amazing job of using many different voices and not mixing them up. It is thoroughly entertaining and uplifting. You have to listen to the entire trilogy - it is great.

Great finale

Great into the trilogy. Narrative was slightly slowed down in the previous two books. Much better.

Tuck

The performance threw me off because the pronunciations of certain people and places were different from the previous two audiobooks. If I hadn't been reading along with an actual book, who knows how long it would have taken me to catch on. Also, the plot had a passing issue. it was very slow for the longest while, and then had a very fun but very speedy rap up. Still, the final book was very satisfying!

Enjoyed this trilogy

Good ending. I enjoyed this trilogy. The story was quite good and the performance was excellent.
Guess I'm supposed to try to make this longer than I already have.
However, I really said all that I wish to say about my enjoyment or criticism of this audio book.

Great conclusion to King Raven Trilogy

Tuck by Stephen R. Lawhead is the great conclusion to the King Raven Trilogy. Hi Bran Y Hud and his men Tuck, Scarlett and a minstrel named Alan Dale travel to Bran's mother's kin to gain their support and an army to help reclaim their lands. First though they have to rescue King Gruffyd from his 8 year imprisonment. things do not work out the way they should, meanwhile the Marshall and Sheriff are making their moves on the band of so called outlaws, Merian is trying to convince her brother King Garran to lend troops to help Bran reclaim his rightful lands, and King William the red is plotting war against Rhi Bran Y Hud and his men. Tuck may well be the only one who can save them all. Well narrated by Adam Verner, Tuck is a brilliantly, well told story and another historical fantasy masterpiece by Stephen R. Lawhead, and is the best version of the Robin Hood legend I have ever read. It is definitely not a children's tale.

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.

Good books, poor narrator

This is a review of the trilogy as a whole. It's a pretty good retelling of the Robin Hood legend, and setting it in Wails and within a different time period gives it an original twist. The Author also has a flowing, easy to read style that is easy to listen to and draws you in quickly. There is a slight fantasy element in the form of made up folk tales with morals that are supposed to give a hint to the hero. These went on too long in my view and were a distraction from the story. My main complaint is the narrator. Yet again we have an American narrator who can't do an English accent. Why they couldn't use a Brittish narrator I don't know given where the story is set. Many words are often mispronounced, passage was parsage at one point. I think the narrator is probably pretty good when using his own voice, but if this trilogy is ever released on audio read by someone else, I will get it. The story is good enough that I will listen again regardless, but I expect I will be flinching at certain points as well.
