Publisher's Summary

Book One of The Wode
The Hooded One. The one to breathe the dark and light and dusk between….
When an old druid foresees this harbinger of chaos, he also sees whom it will claim: young Rob of Loxley. Rob's mother and father, a yeoman forester and a wisewoman, have raised Rob and his sister, Marion, under a solemn duty: to take their parents' places in the Old Religion as the manifestations of the Horned Lord and the Lady Huntress.
But when Gamelyn Boundys, son of a powerful nobleman, is injured in the forest, he and Rob begin a friendship that challenges both duty and ideology: Gamelyn is a devout follower of the Catholic Church. Rob understands the divide between peasant and noble all too well. And the old druid has foreseen that Gamelyn is destined to be Rob's sworn enemy—to fight in a blood sacrifice for the greenwode's Maiden.
In a risky bid for happiness, Rob dares the Horned Lord to reinterpret the ancient rites—to allow Rob to take Gamelyn as a lover instead of a rival. But in the eyes of Gamelyn's church, lust is a sin—and sodomy is unthinkable.

A new take on the Robin Hood origin

What did you love best about Greenwode?

This story sent you on a roller coaster of emotion, there were times that make me extremely happy and there are other points that made me want to cry but it all tied together so perfectly that you couldn't help but love every second of it.

What did you like best about this story?

I have always been a fan of myths and legends such as King Arthur and Robin Hood. You always hear so many tales but all of them seem to have the same intents and purposes, this one however takes the legend of Robin Hood and flips it onto its head, but in a good way. It also leaves you wanting to find out what happens later which is a perfect lead in to the next book, which I shall be starting shortly.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes I did. And believe me, I tried. This is one of those books that you would stay up until three in the morning on a work day to finish (which is exactly what I did)

Any additional comments?

This is an amazing story and definitely worth the listen.

The most powerful book I've read in years.

Would you consider the audio edition of Greenwode to be better than the print version?

As I'm blind, audio is my main reading format. A good narrator always helps, and this guy was great.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Greenwode?

I can't answer that without spoiling the plot, but the whole story was full of emotion from beginning to end.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?


Any additional comments?

This book is beautifully written, combining great characters with fantasy and a historical setting. It harps back to the more fantastical routs of the Robin Hood legend rather than focusing on the more realistic side of medieval life. That said, the author brings across the pagon culture and religion perfectly and it's always believable. This is a story of passion and prejudice and I couldn't put it down.

Disappointing doesn't cover it

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book would appeal to homosexuals who admire the writing style of the late Barbara Cartland.

What will your next listen be?

A book that is neither written by J Tulios Hennig nor narrated by Ross Pendleton

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Ross Pendleton?

Any narrator well enough informed on English dialects not to play the residents of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire with a Scots accent.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Greenwode?

The scene beginning at the top of page one and ending at the bottom of the last page

Any additional comments?

I think I hafve said enough
