Bran ap Brychan finds his world ripped from its foundation as invaders topple his father's kingdom and send the young prince fleeing into the forest. Readers will be spellbound with this entirely fresh take on this legendary figure.
Annotation:
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.
Author Bio
Steve Lawhead
Unlike many science fiction and fantasy authors, Stephen R. Lawhead studied Fine Art while attending college (Kearny State in Nebraska). While there he wrote both poetry and a column in the college paper, though it wasn't until several years later that he turned to fiction. In the meantime, he played guitar in a rock group, studied at Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, and started and managed a record company. His first novel, IN THE HALL OF THE DRAGON KING, appeared in 1982. The first volume of Lawhead's Pendragon Cycle, an Arthurian fantasy series, was published in 1987, and was derived from research Lawhead had done in England, a country to which he and his family eventually immigrated in 1990. The Pendragon books are arguably Lawhead's most popular--the second of which, ARTHUR, even received a nomination for the Locus Award, an award voted on by the readers of science fiction and fantasy. Lawhead has also written non-fiction guides to life in college, several in collaboration with his wife, Alice.

Praise

"The story's tone is uneven--by turns sweet, violent, and funny--and it gets a bit bogged down in the middle, but overall it's a fun read that will leave readers anxious for the next installment." July 31, 2006
