AD 1215: The year of Magna Carta - and Robin Hood's greatest battle.
The yoke of tyranny
King John is scheming to reclaim his ancestral lands in Europe, raising the money for new armies by bleeding dry peasants and nobles alike, not least the earl of Locksley - the former outlaw Robin Hood - and his loyal man, Sir Alan Dale.
As rebellion brews across the country and Robin Hood and his men are dragged into the war against the French in Flanders, a plan is hatched that will bring the former outlaws and their families to the brink of catastrophe - a plan to kill the king.
The roar of revolution England explodes into bloody civil war and Alan and Robin must decide who to trust - and who to slaughter. And while Magna Carta might be the answer their prayers for peace, first they will have to force the king to submit to the will of his people....

"Joyous writing, full of verve and control." (Conn Iggulden)
"A gloriously entertaining reboot...Donald's Robin is a fascinating figure - enigmatic, unpredictable, charismatic and more Benedict Cumberbatch than Errol Flynn. Huge fun." (The Times)
"Angus Donald delivers rip-roaring novels that fling you headlong into the dark undercurrents of the medieval world, written in a taut and compelling style and seething with skulduggery. A master of adventure." (Robyn Young)
Lurching from one heroic deed to the next - I love these tales of Alan Dale. Brilliantly written by Angus Donald and well executed by Mike Rogers. Five stars.
"Another good one!"
Sir Alan Dale is the medieval version of Conrwell's 'Richard Sharpe'. Great characters, great adventures, and great history. This series has become one of my favorites!
"Excellent book and narration"
I have read every book in the Outlaw series and have witnessed improvement in each book. Character development and plot development were superb. Overall storytelling was extremely good. Battle scene narrative is approaching the undisputed master, Bernard Cornwell, high praise indeed. Kudos to Donald and the narrator. I can sum it all up in one word - WOW.
A great series of books with some strong characters and enough action to keep you engaged all the way through
Another a story from the Outlaw series, I've enjoyed these books immensely. This was the first one though audible and I was not disappointed.
