So this is a super short fun tale that fits in with McKay’s Forest Lord Series. It slots in nicely between books 2 & 3 so I’d advise not reading this until you’ve finished book 2 at least.

McKay’s Forest Lord series mainly focuses around Robin Hood as you’d expect so this short is a good chance to shine light on Little John.

It’s a short tale at 19 pages but does offer an action packed little tale to read. The plot is really good and it was a really nice change of focus Robin not being involved. Little John gets to show how much of a formidable opponent he is and the image McKay paints is spot on with how I’d imagine the character myself.

I do hope we see more short tales as I think these are the perfect accompaniment to the series.

As usual with McKay you get great writing and can expect a bit of violence but it’s not overly gruesome, which is one of the things I like about this authors books. I know it sounds weird but he manages to add fun to the fight.. That makes sense right? Ha

Overall this is a good short from McKay and it ticks all the right boxes but it really does highlight how much I miss the series. *Sighs*

Definitely one for the fans of the author and let me tell you that ending is what makes it 5*

A delightful short featuring John Little or Little John as he is more famously known as. A night out with friends, lots of ale and food, and a group of mean looking mercenaries bent on mayhem. A pleasant night goes awry but have the mercenaries taken on more than they can handle? An imaginative bit of writing at the end had me thinking, "clever, Mr. McKay, very clever indeed."

5.0 out of 5 stars Tall, brutish and sharp! 16 April 2017
By William L Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This work is a stand alone short story, and reminded me of how enjoyable the short, discrete, finished tale can be. It is a night in the life of Little John, who is recognized as a good opportunity for bounty hunters. Easy prey... Well, maybe. The writing is blunt and direct, much like the characters. No one is a fool, no one is an angst ridden worrier, and the whole story is populated by people with clarity and a willingness to take direct action. Much direct action is taken. Much indeed.

Got this Kindle novelette off Amazon for the price of a candy bar. And enjoyed a side tale to a Forest Lord character. Well worth it. Satisfying & a nice treat, like a Three Musketeer bar!

Well written (as always) and entertaining none the less. Woild have made a great little piece of a larger story. I'm always on the lookout for the next wolfhead story from Steven McKay..
