When he's caught stealing, young Alan Dale is forced to leave his family and go to live with a notorious band of outlaws in Sherwood Forest. Their leader is the infamous Robin Hood. A tough, bloodthirsty warrior, Robin is more feared than any man in the county. And he becomes a mentor for Alan; with his fellow outlaws, Robin teaches Alan how to fight - and how to win.
But Robin is a ruthless man - and although he is Alan's protector, if Alan displeases him, he could also just as easily become his murderer....
From bloody battles to riotous feast days to marauding packs of wolves, Outlaw is a gripping, action-packed historical thriller that delves deep into the fascinating legend of Robin Hood.

Not bad Robin Hood Fiction

I really don't like the title 'The Godfather of Sherwood Forest' because it implies a Mario Puzo type story which I think it is different then the overall truth of how all people existed back in the time this story takes place... Knights were not 100% chivalry & honor, it's feudal obviously so it works on this system. I love the military nuances & the beginning of longer blood battles & I would be interested to see how parts of this end, but I don't know if I'll get every book of the series. I'll probably get the last book & see how the end resolves.

The overall story doesn't hold up well as other authors but perhaps Donald has not written his best. If you like Robin Hood stories it could be worth it, but it depends on what else you've read. It obviously can't compare to Cornwell & Martin but its almost on Ludlow level, but its only one book I've read about this author.

Not the best type of books I've read in this genre...
