Publisher's Summary

History speaks of a folk hero hundreds of years ago who fought against corrupt kings and saw the good in everyday people.
Legends say that this might not have been just one man, but many heroes to take up the name and mantle of Robin Hood throughout the ages.
The legend has been reborn in the American apocalypse.
Rob 'Hood' Huntington was an easygoing 20-something kid who loved house parties with good friends and bad jokes. He never thought about a life of survival.
Then in one day everything he knew was gone.
Lucky for him, he learned quickly he is a truly gifted marksman. Learning to live with pulling the trigger is something else entirely.
Two years have passed since the fall of civilization. Hidden away in the mid-Atlantic countryside rests the small town of Clearwater, where Hood, his sister Taylor, and an ex-cop by the name of Whiskey lead a group of survivors. Raging through the remnants of the northeast, two kings, the Kaiser and the Crusader, fight a bloody war for control of the land.
Hood, Whiskey, and the Clearwater crew survive by stealing just enough from the Kaiser to keep the town going. But they cannot stay hidden away forever.
If you loved The Last of Us, I Am Legend, or The Road, you won't want to miss Hood!

An post apocalyptic story any living humanoid would enjoy!!!

Oh my god.

Finished this in like three days.

It was THAT good.

I fell in love with the main character, Hood, and his kind heart and jock-like ways.

The story itself is wonderfully written. Even in audiobook you can tell that Mr Pickering is a masterful writer, with an eloquent voice and a skill for the descriptive.

I had hoped to pick up a copy of the novel but when I saw there was an audiobook I was delighted, as a new job has meant spending long hours commuting.

Um, NOT LONG ENOUGH.

Once I began listening to 'Hood', there wasn't enough hours in the day. I developed a full on crush on Rob and cannot wait for the sequel, though the tragedy of this story will certainly stop you for six. I'm going to listen to Harry Potter now so that I can escape from the realistic horror that this novel describes, and the viewpoint it provides on both human nature and animals, and the thin line which divides us from the latter.

Please note, this book is awesome. You're missing out if you don't read/listen.

I'll definitely be waiting for the audio of 'Whiskey' too. Get on it, Pickering.

Dystopian dark

What did you love best about Hood?

The pace was consistent and flowed well. The situations described in detail.


What did you like best about this story?

The characters are well defined, even when they surprised me. We got into their heads.


Have you listened to any of Michael Jameson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not. This was very well done.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Staying alive and out of evil's way


Any additional comments?

In a dystopian world you expect dark and disturbing. This small band of survivors are trying to stay alive and hide from the evil left in the world. When Hood finds himself on his own, the world gets darker and survival even less probable.
