Publisher's Summary

AD 1215: The year of Magna Carta - and Robin Hood's greatest battle.
The yoke of tyranny King John is scheming to reclaim his ancestral lands in Europe, raising the money for new armies by bleeding dry peasants and nobles alike, not least the Earl of Locksley - the former outlaw Robin Hood - and his loyal man Sir Alan Dale.
As rebellion brews across the country and Robin Hood and his men are dragged into the war against the French in Flanders, a plan is hatched that will bring the former outlaws and their families to the brink of catastrophe - a plan to kill the King.
The roar of revolution England explodes into bloody civil war and Alan and Robin must decide who to trust - and who to slaughter. And while Magna Carta might be the answer their prayers for peace, first they will have to force the King to submit to the will of his people....


What the Critics Say

"Joyous writing, full of verve and control" (Conn Iggulden)
"A gloriously entertaining reboot . . . Donald's Robin is a fascinating figure - enigmatic, unpredictable, charismatic and more Benedict Cumberbatch than Errol Flynn. Huge fun" (The Times)
"Angus Donald delivers rip-roaring novels that fling you headlong into the dark undercurrents of the medieval world, written in a taut and compelling style and seething with skulduggery. A master of adventure." (Robyn Young)

Another good one!

Sir Alan Dale is the medieval version of Conrwell's 'Richard Sharpe'. Great characters, great adventures, and great history. This series has become one of my favorites!
