Publisher's Summary

Arrows will fly. Swords will swing. Heroes will fall. Legends will survive. And the Holy Land will never be the same.1190 AD: Richard the Lionheart has launched his epic crusade to seize Jerusalem from the cruel Saracens. Marching with the vast royal army is Britain's most famous, most feared, most ferocious warrior: the Outlaw of Nottingham, the Earl of Locksley - Robin Hood himself. With his band of loyal men at his side, Robin cuts a bloody swathe on the brutal journey east. Daring and dangerous, he can outwit and outlast any foe - but the crimson battlefields of the Holy Land are the ultimate proving ground.
And within Robin's camp lurks a traitor - a stealthy enemy determined to slay Christendom's greatest outlaw before the trumpets fade. Blazingly paced and richly imagined, featuring a cast of unforgettable characters and packed with fast, furious action, Holy Warrior is adventure at its thrilling, white-knuckle best.

My favorite of the series

For reason or another, I think this is my favorite of the series. It might be because the structure of the crusade gives me a linear line over Europe the map the events. In the other books in the series it takes a bit more efforth to locate the story.
Highly recommended series! Note: if you are a new listener, go find "Outlaw" book from the same author. It is the first on this series.

Pretty good

Apart from a few bits I thought were gratuitously, misogynistically, violent, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Which is good because I've already bought the next two!

I really like the voice characterisations by Graham Padden and I very often find I'm more likely to buy books with the same voice artist rather than the same author simply because the performance is every bit as important as the story in many cases.

Very, very good!
