From his gaol cell, outlaw Will Scatlocke waits to be hanged.

Before he swings, Will – known to his friends as Scarlet – dictates his story to Odo, a duplicitous monk who has been given the job of recording his confession. Odo serves the ambitions of Abbot Hugo, who is gathering evidence that will lead to the capture of the men who have plagued the aristocracy and robbed the church of treasure. Hugo seeks the destruction of the elusive King Raven and his band, the Grellon.

Driven from his home in the north of England, Will has trekked to Wales to join his fortunes with that of the man whose reputation is growing throughout Britain. A forester skilled with the longbow, Will is soon part of Bran ap Brychan’s inner circle. In a failed attempt to kidnap sheriff Richard de Glanville, Will is captured. With rumours of conspiracy deepening at court, the humble prisoner becomes a vital link to the outlaws who abandoned him – and on whose loyalty their lives depend – and the throne of England.

Stephen R. Lawhead’s King Raven series brings to life the legend of Robin Hood as never before.

While I enjoyed his character—a...

5.0 Scarlet (King Raven Trilogy)
Let me be honest here, prior to reading this book, I was worried. (Also, note that my past review of Hood was a reread, this one and Tuck I’ve never read before). I noticed that a good part of this book was in first person, which, you know always sets me off, but especially in this case because I th...

5.0 Scarlet (The King Raven, Book 2)
This an awesome twist on history, and a great way of looking at both William the Conqueror and the Robin Hood myth. A must read.

3.0 Scarlet (King Raven #2)
Continues the tale of Robin Hood, set in a more historic Welsh setting. Thoroughly enjoyed this tale. I have to say, I think that this series is fast moving up in my favorites list.
