The Legend Begins Anew
For centuries, the legend of Robin Hood and his band of thieves has captivated the imagination. Now the familiar tale takes on new life, fresh meaning, and an unexpected setting.
Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Stephen R. Lawhead's latest work conjures up an ancient past and holds a mirror to contemporary realities. Prepare yourself for an epic tale that dares to shatter everything you thought you knew about Robin Hood.
The first book in Stephen R. Lawhead's King Raven trilogy reimagines the myth of Robin Hood, conceiving the legendary figure as Bran, the heir to a Welsh king in 1093. When the kingdom is overrun by Normans, Bran takes flight and, with the aid of a colorful band of populists, comes into his own as a leader of his people.
