5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Debut, 21 July 2011

This review is from: Outlaw (Outlaw Chronicles) (Paperback)
I have always been a fan of Robin Hood, i suppose it has something to do with being named after him and then eventually ending up living in the back yard of the exploits of the Man/ Myth.

When this series started it was with a part groan part apprehension that i picked it up, so many times i have read the tale and its been awful prancing Nancy's in tights, and then there are the movies, inc the recent Russell "where the hell is that accent from" Crowe version.

But All of that gets thrown to the wind with Angus Donald's books, this is a different Robin Hood, this is a man who protects the poor, but at a price, this is a Robin Hood where there is still mystery and Awe, but also fear, in the same way that Pacino gave mystery and Awe to Michael Corleone and he was still feared.

Angus Donald's writing its self is excellent, tight, fast paced, descriptive without drowning in it and detracting from the plot, and the pace so well set you have finished the book before you know it.

This is a book as with the whole series you simply must buy: Its An offer you can't refuse.

Highly recommended
