Good books, poor narrator
This is a review of the trilogy as a whole. It's a pretty good retelling of the Robin Hood legend, and setting it in Wails and within a different time period gives it an original twist. The Author also has a flowing, easy to read style that is easy to listen to and draws you in quickly. There is a slight fantasy element in the form of made up folk tales with morals that are supposed to give a hint to the hero. These went on too long in my view and were a distraction from the story. My main complaint is the narrator. Yet again we have an American narrator who can't do an English accent. Why they couldn't use a Brittish narrator I don't know given where the story is set. Many words are often mispronounced, passage was parsage at one point. I think the narrator is probably pretty good when using his own voice, but if this trilogy is ever released on audio read by someone else, I will get it. The story is good enough that I will listen again regardless, but I expect I will be flinching at certain points as well.

A Good Ending
This book made a good ending to the story. This book focused on Tuck and his roll. There wasn't much to focus on, however, since he did not have much of a roll at all. He did play key parts that should be noted, but as also took part in deceptions that are not becoming of a man of the cloth. Some of these deceptions could almost be considered sacrilegious. The story itself holds little resemblance to the Robin Hood we know and love and would lose nothing if any mention or allusion to the classic tail were removed from it. The ending was enjoyable if not believable. In my opinion if a story telling device cannot stand on its own and must be backed up by historical fact, it should be rewritten. The epilogue seemed to serve no other purpose than to show how this story was changed into the classic Robin Hood. As a result I cannot get behind this as a Robin Hood story but can enjoy it as a King Bran (Rey Bran) story.

A Well-Crafted, Satisfying End to a Great Series
Thus epic and brilliant trilogy deserves a spot on the shelf of anyone who values contemporary literature that is actually worth reading. Tuck, the third and final entry of this unique take on the legend of Robin Hood, delivers an end betting the quality the first two demonstrated. The reader was also a pleasure to hear.
