Publisher's Summary

Robin Hood returns!
And this time the legendary wolf's head is working for the sheriff....
After winning his freedom in Rise of the Wolf, Robin - with his faithful lieutenant John Little at his side - now spends his days travelling around northern England dispensing King Edward II's justice.
When a new band of outlaws appears in Barnsdale, Sheriff Henry de Faucumberg sends Robin and John to deal with them. Before the lawmen can track them down though, Will Scaflock is attacked and another of their old companions murdered in his own home by the outlaws whose leader seems to have only one thing on his mind:
Bloody vengeance!
Will Robin's reunited gang be enough to defeat this savage new threat that seeks to wipe them out one by one? Or will another old foe provide the final twist that sees England's greatest longbowman dead and buried?
This stunning conclusion to the best-selling Forest Lord series will delight and entertain listeners looking for action-packed historical fiction in the mold of Scarrow, Kane, and Cornwell!

A Good Listen

Where does Blood of the Wolf rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks somewhere in the middle. it is a good historical retelling of Robin Hood with a twist.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked all of them. Some of the secondary characters stepped up to steal some of the scenes.

Which character – as performed by NIck Ellsworth – was your favorite?

Little John

If you could take any character from Blood of the Wolf out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Not sure about taking them out to dinner. They were each enjoyable. I would probably have all of them to the park for a BarB Que so they could entertain the others in the park.

Any additional comments?

I got this ARC via audiobook boom. The narrator was not up there with my other favorite narrators but was a close second.

This is an exciting new take on Robin Hood and the what came next. Characters give us a glimpse of life on both sides of the law and Robin Hood, Little John and Friar Tuck as they move in the life after their life on the wrong side of the law.
There are sword fights, and defining moments that show how choices one moment can move life n startling directions.
Nick Ellsworth does a wonderful job bringing all the male characters o life. His voice is perfect for the story. His characters have their own personalities and are easily identifiable making the story easy to follow while listening.
