A disappointment

I read the first two books in this trilogy and enjoyed them enough to listen to the third. This was definitely the weakest of the three. The plot often included points which stretched my credulity past the breaking point. For instance, Marian does not hear of her father's death for many months even though he is a king and his castle is an easy day's ride from the greenwood? At the same time a Frank nobleman comments upon how quickly news travels among the common people.
I was less than delighted with the narrator as well. He should have checked word pronunciations more assiduously and his dialect was sometimes ludicrous because of his extreme use of a broad "a" which, at times, turned Bran into something like "Bron." Still a pleasant enough story, but definitely a disappointment.

Final book in the Trilogy

These books have a very interesting and imaginative take on the Robin Hood story. A treat for anyone who enjoys tales of the Dark or Middle Ages.
