The finale to the Robin Hood legend. Bran enlists the help of other Cymry [welshmen] and some Freinc lords and forces Rufus for the rulership of Elfael. So the story ends happily, unlike the original Robin Hood legend.

I enjoyed this, but it all just seemed a bit too pat at the end. Everybody just goes “oh, ok, lets do the right thing after years of not and call it a day”. But it was an ending that made sense, even if I didn’t particularly care for it ๐Ÿ™‚

what Lawhead did for Arthur with his Pendragon cycle, he is now doing for the legend of Robin Hood. Taking place in the 1100’s, in Wales, it follows a displace Cymry Prince who turns to outlawry to survive, and ultimately protect his people. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and am looking forward to the next 2 in this trilogy.
