Summary

Robin Hood returns!
And this time the legendary wolf's head is working for the sheriff....
After winning his freedom in Rise of the Wolf, Robin - with his faithful lieutenant John Little at his side - now spends his days travelling around northern England dispensing King Edward II's justice.
When a new band of outlaws appears in Barnsdale, Sheriff Henry de Faucumberg sends Robin and John to deal with them. Before the lawmen can track them down though, Will Scaflock is attacked and another of their old companions murdered in his own home by the outlaws whose leader seems to have only one thing on his mind:
Bloody vengeance!
Will Robin's reunited gang be enough to defeat this savage new threat that seeks to wipe them out one by one? Or will another old foe provide the final twist that sees England's greatest longbowman dead and buried?
This stunning conclusion to the best-selling Forest Lord series will delight and entertain listeners looking for action-packed historical fiction in the mold of Scarrow, Kane, and Cornwell!

McKay's usual brilliance!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd recommend all the Forest Lord books! McKay is a fantastic new author, now fairly established as an attention-grabbing storyteller with plenty of pace and action from cover to cover. I enjoyed reading the books on Kindle, but listening to them on Audible also gives a whole new 'feel' for the characters thanks to an excellent and eminently suitable narrator!

What does NIck Ellsworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The voice and intonation of the narrator Nick Ellsworth isn't immediately gripping, but it slowly and delicately lures you into a world of rural northern England where he truly makes you feel as if you're actually there, and if not one of the characters, you'll definitely feel very comfortable as a hidden - almost spying - spectator!

Any additional comments?

Read them all - you'll not regret it!

A fantastic end to a fantastic series.

What made the experience of listening to Blood of the Wolf the most enjoyable?

The story itself. The author just gets better with each book.

What other book might you compare Blood of the Wolf to, and why?

I suppose it's inevitable that I'd compare it to other Robin Hood novels for obvious reasons, but it's a favourable comparison.

What does NIck Ellsworth bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He gives each character an individual voice.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Blood of the Wolf

Any additional comments?

I absolutely could not put this down. Exciting, funny, at times deeply moving, this book is all of that and more. A brilliant end to a brilliant series and a worthy addition to the Robin Hood legend.

You must listen to this series.

Would you consider the audio edition of Blood of the Wolf to be better than the print version?

I listened to the audio version. I listen to dozens of audio books while working. This Narrator is one of the best in the business. I know you will enjoy it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood of the Wolf?

A missed arrow shot lol

Have you listened to any of NIck Ellsworth’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes he is very good. He is one of the best there is.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Steven McKay is a good author who has the ability to surprise the reader a number of times in the book.

Any additional comments?

Treat your self by beginning at the first one in the series.

A Good Listen

Where does Blood of the Wolf rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks somewhere in the middle. it is a good historical retelling of Robin Hood with a twist.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked all of them. Some of the secondary characters stepped up to steal some of the scenes.

Which character – as performed by NIck Ellsworth – was your favorite?

Little John

If you could take any character from Blood of the Wolf out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Not sure about taking them out to dinner. They were each enjoyable. I would probably have all of them to the park for a BarB Que so they could entertain the others in the park.

Any additional comments?

I got this ARC via audiobook boom. The narrator was not up there with my other favorite narrators but was a close second.
