Publisher's 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!

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.
