Summary

The first book of the trilogy, Shadow of the Wolf, is set in Sherwood Forest in medieval England. In it, Tim Hall presents a Robin Hood more heroic and horrific than ever before: a 14-year-old blind, ruthless assassin and elemental creature of the forest, hell-bent on a mission to avenge his father's death and the brutal abduction of his soul mate, Marian. It is a breathtakingly original - and utterly compelling - retelling of the Robin Hood legend.

Critic reviews

"My favourite YA book of 2014 (so far and I can't imagine anyone topping it). I thought this was going to be a YA fantasy book but I'm not sure what it is, which is why I love it. Beautiful writing, a stunning mix of action and mystical folklore. A brilliant story.”(Sally Green, author of Half Bad)
"It's dark and violent, a gory fantasy mash-up with Game of Thrones and X-Men in its DNA...Tim Hall clearly has talent – the setup is great...The book ends on a cliff-hanger, so there's clearly a sequel to come.”(The Guardian)
“Forget everything you’ve ever heard about Robin Hood – this novel portrays a Robin like we’ve never seen him before. Astonishingly good.” (The Sun, selected as a summer read and awarded 5 out of 5 stars)

Great narrator. Tedious story

First off, the narrator is brilliant and manages to give each character such a distinct voice that I struggled to believe that it was all done by one person. However, the text itself is so frustrating that I didn't enjoy it. I simply didn't understand why Robin would give everything up and leave the Keep to go find Marion - and I found all that 'our fates are entwined; you are me and I am you' guff really irritating. Infuriatingly, the bit I enjoyed most was when Robin was training to be a knight - and was really annoyed when he left to go chase after some spoiled little rich girl.

Disappointing

I am struggling with this one - it may be the first audiobook I don't finish, and that's surprising because it promised to be just the sort of novel I enjoy. But it seems slow and the characters don't engage me. It's a pity because the narration was very good.
