Review quote

Angus Donald leads you into the familiar forests of Medieval England...and then all hell breaks loose! Far from the figure of popular legend, Donald's Robin Hood is a brutal, cunning warlord who will let nothing stand in his way. A fresh, lively and welcome take on one of the world's most famous outlaws. And yet, it stirred in me a nostalgia for all the great stories of my childhood; those that thrilled me, inspired me and shaped who I am today. Complex heroes, craven villains, brutal fights...King's Man is a boy's own romp that flies like an arrow from a yew bow * Giles Kristian * Excellent, well researched and full of detail. Started it a few weeks ago, and have been gripped by it since. Quite simply, it's a great read. * Ben Kane * Twists, turns, blood and death, ambush and escape is all revealed against a meticulously-researched backdrop. A stunning portrayal of the dark side of the Robin Hood legend, THIS is the outlaw Russell Crowe should have played. * Robert Low * A glorious, gritty, violent, fast-moving recreation of an English legend * The Times *
