"A rip-roaring tale...inspired by but not slavish to historical events of the Dark Ages, this book is full of twists and turns...A fast-moving, thoroughly enjoyable yarn." --Kirkus Reviews on King's Man

In 1192 A.D., with the Third Crusade over, Richard the Lionheart is headed back home to England, only to be betrayed, captured, and held for ransom. Now with the princes of Europe lining up against him, the fate of the greatest warrior in Christendom lies in the hands of a renegade earl and former outlaw: Robin Hood.

The mission is deadly and the enemies are powerful and numerous. But for king and country, Robin and his loyal lieutenant Alan Dale will face great risks--from battles on blood-soaked fields to deadly assassins--in a heroic bid to restore the Lionheart to his rightful throne.

Angus Donald has written a brilliant novel of the dark ages, one that brings some of the best-known figures in history to wondrous, vivid life.

Told by Alan Dale, this Robin Hood tale has more history and intrigue than the usual Robin Hood story. In this version, Robin was an outlaw before and then joined Richard on his crusade which earned him his title and lands back. But when Richard is captured on the way back from the Holy Lands and John makes a play for the crown, Robin must again become an outlaw to stop John's plans.
