Publisher's Summary

When he's caught stealing, young Alan Dale is forced to leave his family and go to live with a notorious band of outlaws in Sherwood Forest. Their leader is the infamous Robin Hood. A tough, bloodthirsty warrior, Robin is more feared than any man in the county. And he becomes a mentor for Alan; with his fellow outlaws, Robin teaches Alan how to fight - and how to win.
But Robin is a ruthless man - and although he is Alan's protector, if Alan displeases him, he could also just as easily become his murderer....
From bloody battles to riotous feast days to marauding packs of wolves, Outlaw is a gripping, action-packed historical thriller that delves deep into the fascinating legend of Robin Hood.

Worth persisting

I started by thinking Graham Padden was a little mono tonal and was almost inclined to stop listening. However, there turned out to be more intonation than I originally suspected and an enjoyable story. I have even downloaded the next volume!

An adventure to get your teeth in to.

Any additional comments?

I'd like to say it was a jolly romp through Nottinghamshire but it is not. What we have here is a gritty, realistic and graphic port rail of what life was like in this time period. It's always a bit mean to draw comparisons but this book is very similar in nature and delivery to the Warlord Chronicles by Bernard Cornwell. For fans of historical adventure there are few books I have enjoyed more than this one. As long as you don't mind a few rather graphic descriptions of violence, and in one instance a young lad losing his virginity, you will almost certainly love this story. Definitely worth a credit.
