King Raven-- The Complete Trilogy: Hood, Scarlet, and Tuck by Stephen R. Lawhead
A completely re–imagined epic of the man known as Robin Hood--available in one volume for the first time.
Hood–Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne of Elfael, has abandoned his father's kingdom and fled to the greenwood. There, in the primeval forest of the Welsh borders, danger surrounds him–for this woodland is a living, breathing entity with mysterious powers and secrets, and Bran must find a way to make it his own if he is to survive.
Scarlet–After losing everything he owns, forester Will Scarlet embarks on a search for King Raven. After fulfilling his quest–and proving himself a skilled and loyal companion–Will joins the heroic archer and his men. From deep in the forest they form a daring plan for deliverance, knowing that failure means death for them all.
Tuck–King Raven has brought hope to the oppressed people of Wales–and fear to their Norman overlords. Deceived by the self–serving King William, Rhi Bran is forced again to take matters into his own hands as King Raven.
Aided by Tuck and his small but determined band of forest–dwelling outlaws, Rhi Bran ignites a rebellion that spreads through the Welsh valleys.
