For centuries, the legend of Robin Hood and his band of thieves has captivated the imagination.

Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne Elfael, has abandoned his father’s kingdom and fled to the greenwood. There, in the primeval forest of the Welsh borders, danger surrounds him—for this woodland is a living, breathing entity with its own mysterious powers and secrets. Bran must find a way to make it his own if he is to survive. Like the forest itself, Hood is deep, dark, and at times savagely brutal—yet full of enchantment and hope. It will lead you down strange pathways into another time and place.

“A book no fan of historical fiction and fantasy will want to miss.” Newmarket Journal
“By turns sweet, violent, and funny…a fun read that will leave readers anxious for the next installment.” Publishers Weekly
“Reader Adam Verner’s light voice and lyricism remind one of the movie troubadour who sang ballads and told stories to Errol Flynn in Sherwood Forest.” AudioFile
“[A] highly imaginative, earthy adventure that has little to do with Errol Flynn but is just as rousing.” Booklist (starred review)
