Publisher's Summary

For centuries, the legend of Robin Hood and his band of thieves has captivated the imagination. Now the familiar tale takes on new life, fresh meaning, and an unexpected setting.Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne of Elfael, has abandoned his father's kingdom and fled to the greenwood. There, in the primeval forest of the Welsh borders, danger surrounds him, for this woodland is a living, breathing entity with mysterious powers and secrets, and Bran must find a way to make it his own if he is to survive.Like the forest itself, Hood is deep, dark, and at times savagely brutal, yet full of enchantment and hope. Internationally acclaimed author Stephen R. Lawhead has created a lyrical rendering of a time-honored story that will lead you down strange pathways into another place and time.

Hoodwinked - Hood Bk 1

I am a big Stephen Lawhead fan and have collected most of his works. This is my first audio version of one of his books. I found the storyline and characters enjoyable and liked the setting of the Robin Hood story. My only criticism is the story being read by an American who cannot pronounce the Welsh names and places. I found this extremely irritating and it constantly distracted me.

A compelling listen

I enjoyed this story. However, it is worth noting that it really bears very little relation to stories of Robin Hood. This said, it is an enjoyable fantasy novel and I hope to download a sequel soon.
