Publisher's Summary

After losing everything he owns, forester Will Scarlet embarks on a search for none other than King Raven, whose exploits have already become legendary. After fulfilling his quest - and proving himself a skilled and loyal companion - Will joins the heroic archer and his men.

Now, however, Will is in prison for a crime he did not commit. His sentence is death by hanging - unless he delivers King Raven and his band of cohorts.

Scarlet continues Stephen R. Lawhead's riveting saga that began with the novel Hood, which relocated the legend of Robin Hood to the Welsh countryside and its dark forests. Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Lawhead's trilogy conjures up an ancient past and holds a mirror to contemporary realities.

    "Good, but Lawhead does better"

    I think that the story lacks a certain amount of plausibility in connecting events. Perhaps a little to Cussler-ish on development. But don't let that put you off.
    Lawhead has a unique skill for connecting myth with history. He doesn't fall for the reductionist surmising of the majority of academic historians, whose notions are both fanciful and misjudge human nature. This book is a worth while read, and his other works yet more so.

    This story is very engaging and a fun listen. The narrator does an amazing job! He is good at changing his voice for each character and keeps it interesting.

    "Amazing"

    This is the second book of the King Raven series. I enjoyed it as I enjoyed the first. The only thing against it was that they're are sections written in first person which through me off for a bit. I can't wait to see how the concluding book unfolds.

    "Very well done"

    Even better than Hood, I'd say. The reader is much better as well. If you have read Hood then it's definitely worth it to keep reading

    "Bad narration"

    A well-written tale utterly ruined by narrator Adam Verner. His reading of the dialog is corny and his style in general sounds as though he's reading to elementary students. I made it through the first two tales of this trilogy, but won't suffer listening to him a third time. I'll buy a hard copy instead. Truly sad.

    "Hard to follow"
    Would you try another book from Stephen R Lawhead and/or Adam Verner?

    I enjoyed Hood, but this one was hard to follow.


    What could Stephen R Lawhead have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I didn't like the first person style going back and forth between the story and dialog with the scribe.

    Story
    "Rhi Bran Y Hud and Will Scarlet"

    Scarlet as scribed by the monk Odo, told by William Scatlocke (Will Scarlet) is the story of how Will Scarlet came to join Rhi Bran Y Hud, Merian, Little John (Iwan) and Friar Tuck. and ended up in a cell awaiting his execution by hanging. The Sheriff is out for blood, after Bran and his men steal a secret letter bearing a message from the Pope, threatening to hang a boy each day until the letter is returned. Well narrated by Adam verner, Scarlet by Stephen Lawhead is the heart of the King Raven Trilogy.

    "Justified the First In Every Way"
    Any additional comments?

    The first book of this series was fine, but made me wonder if Lawhead had lost some of his magic...but in this book he got it back in spades. The reader is a perfect voice for Will Scarlet, who narrates the story, and telling the tale from Scarlet's perspective is engaging and interesting. I almost gave up on the series after book 1...but this book totally makes it all worthwhile, can't wait to check out the finale.
