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.

The call to arms
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 . . .

About the Author:

Angus Donald was educated at Marlborough College and Edinburgh University. He has worked as a fruit-picker in Greece, a waiter in New York and as an anthropologist studying magic and witchcraft in Indonesia. For twenty years, he was a journalist in Hong Kong, India, Afghanistan and London. He now has two children with his wife Mary and he lives and writes in a medieval farmhouse in rural Kent.

Review:

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

Joyous writing, full of verve and control―Conn Iggulden

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
