Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
The book starts with a quick re-cap of all that's gone before in the previous two volumes, King of Sherwood and Arrow of Justice, but it is still advisable to read them first as the plot of Freedom's Outlaw relies upon its readers' investment in the characters. This isn't a weakness, I.A. Watson has done a brilliant job of building these characters up over the course of two books now and their portrayal in the third is so absolutely right that some scenes practically sing, but for this very reason that the story should be enjoyed with a full-awareness of the series. The novel is good entirely on its own; with its companions it is incredible.

The story carries on pretty much directly from the end of Arrow of Justice, with Robin and his allies escaping from Nottingham Castle and the Sheriff humiliated on his wedding day. This novel is very much about coping with the consequences of what people have set out to do and explores the ramifications of Robin's rebellion very thoroughly without appearing either unrealistic or over-realised. Instead I.A. Watson manages to draw together all his plots and brings them if not to a final conclusion then a highly satisfying resolution.

To summarise: a highly recommended book from a highly recommended series. The characterisation is, as previously described, top-quality; the plot is inventive and believable; and the mythic quality of the subject matter is respected and understood. The illustrations are not particularly inspiring but can be ignored and other than that I can think of no serious criticism. If you liked the previous volumes then you will also like this, if you have not read the previous volumes then congratulations on having just discovered not just one but three excellent reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Conclusion to a Stunning Trilogy! 10 Nov. 2014
By Tom McNulty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Robin Hood: Freedom’s Outlaw concludes the trilogy with Robin and his Merry Men intervening in the Sheriff of Nottingham’s assault on Sir Richard at the Lee’s castle. The historical background, strong characterizations and obvious love for his material are evidence enough that Ian Watson’s Robin Hood books are a must-have for fans!
