5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, very original (despite being Robin Hood), 25 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Hood: Number 1 in series (King Raven Trilogy) (Paperback)
A very fine read, Rhi Bran (Robin) is a prince, unfortunately he has his lands stolen by Normans, under whom his people suffer. Rhi Bran flees his land to try and get help from the King, he is turned down and once again runs. He attacks Normans he finds ransacking a house, he is wounded and almost dies...

Read the book to find out the rest :P Don't want to ruin it for you. I enjoyed this book immensely, I noticed that other customers have complained about it not being Robin Hood, personally I prefer this new story line and location. One of the things I found very interesting reading this book is the way Stephen R. Lawhead slowly moulds Rhi Bran into the shape of the old Robin Hood, Rhi Bran begins hardly recognisable to Robin, but slowly, as the story unfolds, he becomes more and more like Robin.

Overall a Very good read and well worth the money, I'm currently reading the next book, Scarlet, which is also a very good read but a very diffrent style and, for me, a four star.
