Publisher's Summary

'I charge you, Sir Alan Dale, with administering my death. At the end of the game, I would rather die by your hand than any other.'
England rebels. War rages across the land. In the wake of Magna Carta, King John's treachery is revealed, and the barons rise against him once more. Fighting with them is the Earl of Locksley - the former outlaw Robin Hood - and his right-hand man, Sir Alan Dale.
France invades. When the French enter the fray, with the cruel White Count leading the charge, Robin and Alan must decide where their loyalties lie: with those who would destroy the king and seize his realm or with the beloved land of their birth.
A hero lives forever. Fate is inexorable, and Death waits for us all. Or does it? Can Robin Hood pull off his greatest ever trick and cheat the Grim Reaper one last time just as England needs him most?
The climactic episode of The Outlaw Chronicles is the most explosive yet - but who will survive and who will fall when the final reckoning comes?

Loved it!

The whole series has been an action packed adventure and this book has been a fitting finale saying goodbye to characters new and old. An emotional and brutal end. Angus Donald I salute you! It has been my first time using audio and if the narrators are all like mike rogers I will become a life long audiobook client. Thank you.

Like losing an old friend !

Where does The Death of Robin Hood rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

As a series of 8 books these are the best I've listened to... over the past few years I've listened to each book stand alone as they were released but decided to listen to them all again prior to the final installment. It's taken me 3 months but now it's over I can honestly say it's like saying a final goodbye to an old friend


Who was your favorite character and why?

Obviously Alan Dale stands out as he feels part of the listener but Angus Donald did a fantastic job with Robin making him as Swashbuckling as Errol Flyn but as flawed, inhumane yet charismatic as Alan Rickmans Sheriff of Nottingham


Have you listened to any of Mike Rogers’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've only listened to Mike in relation to this series but what a job he does! He makes every character sound different. His tone and general reading make the books come alive


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

The Real Story of the Legend !


Any additional comments?

Please do yourself a favour and read these books. You can't help but think this is as close to how Robin and his men really were .....10/10 listens !!
