Publisher's Summary

Arrows will fly. Swords will swing. Heroes will fall. Legends will survive. And the Holy Land will never be the same.1190 AD: Richard the Lionheart has launched his epic crusade to seize Jerusalem from the cruel Saracens. Marching with the vast royal army is Britain's most famous, most feared, most ferocious warrior: the Outlaw of Nottingham, the Earl of Locksley - Robin Hood himself. With his band of loyal men at his side, Robin cuts a bloody swathe on the brutal journey east. Daring and dangerous, he can outwit and outlast any foe - but the crimson battlefields of the Holy Land are the ultimate proving ground.
And within Robin's camp lurks a traitor - a stealthy enemy determined to slay Christendom's greatest outlaw before the trumpets fade. Blazingly paced and richly imagined, featuring a cast of unforgettable characters and packed with fast, furious action, Holy Warrior is adventure at its thrilling, white-knuckle best.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed the first book of this series but wasn't prepared for the second. I listen to my books on my commute to work, and continually found my self arriving at work horrified about some graphic description or depressed at the continual march of death through out the plot. I understand the book is about war during a brutal time of history, but it was just a little to much. I did not finish listening. I stopped after approx. 3/4 of the story when there was foreshadowing of something horrific to come. The narrator did an outstanding job, however. I do not envy his having to read some sections.

misleading

overall a good story. However based on the title and the description I was expecting the majority of the book to be about the Expedition and battles to Jerusalem. Not the case. I still enjoyed it.
