Twists, turns, blood and death, ambush and escape is all revealed against a meticulously-researched backdrop. A stunning portrayal of the dark side of the Robin Hood legend, THIS is the outlaw Russell Crowe should have played.
Excellent, well researched and full of detail. Started it a few weeks ago, and have been gripped by it since. Quite simply, it's a great read.
A glorious, gritty, violent, fast-moving recreation of an English legend
Angus Donald leads you into the familiar forests of Medieval England...and then all hell breaks loose! Far from the figure of popular legend, Donald's Robin Hood is a brutal, cunning warlord who will let nothing stand in his way. A fresh, lively and welcome take on one of the world's most famous outlaws. And yet, it stirred in me a nostalgia for all the great stories of my childhood; those that thrilled me, inspired me and shaped who I am today. Complex heroes, craven villains, brutal fights...King's Man is a boy's own romp that flies like an arrow from a yew bow
