Robin and his gang - Allan A Dale, Little John, Will Scarlett and, still a little reluctantly, Much - are now established enemies of the state. A constant thorn in the side of the evil Sheriff of Nottingham and his henchman Sir Guy of Gisborne, they need to be quick-witted and handy with a sword just to stay alive. And, with Marian now under deep suspicion at the castle, their skills might just be needed in a rescue attempt or two.
Meanwhile there's no let-up in the fighting injustice business...Allan A Dale's long-lost brother Tom turns out to be more trouble than he's worth when he tries to rob Marian's house; Marian finds herself in mortal danger at the hands of Gisborne; and Robin flies into an uncontrollable fury upon discovering Sir Guy's shocking secret. With action and adventure coming thick and fast, it's just as well the gang finds a new member - though even he isn't the man he appears to be...
