July 2009 Debut of the Month.

An interesting take on the Robin Hood legend, seen through the eyes of a young man forced to leave home and join the outlaws of Sherwood Forest. A gripping historical epic that portrays Robin as a ruthless, bloodthirsty and feared vigilante. We think this is one to watch and maybe the likes of Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden should be watching this new author too!!

If you like Angus Donald you might also like to read books by Conn Iggulden, Ben Kane and Bernard Cornwell.

Synopsis

Outlaw by Angus Donald

When he's caught stealing, young Alan Dale is forced to leave his family and go to live with a notorious band of outlaws in Sherwood Forest.

Their leader is the infamous Robin Hood. A tough, bloodthirsty warrior, Robin is more feared than any man in the county. And he becomes a mentor for Alan; with his fellow outlaws, Robin teaches Alan how to fight - and how to win.

But Robin is a ruthless man - and although he is Alan's protector, if Alan displeases him, he could also just as easily become his murderer....

From bloody battles to riotous feast days to marauding packs of wolves, Outlaw is a gripping, action-packed historical thriller that delves deep into the fascinating legend of Robin Hood.

Reviews

A lively and enjoyable book Daily Mail A tale well told via the thoughts of a flawed hero...not a read for the squeamish Nottinghamshire Today
