Another action-packed adventure by the author of the bestselling Outlaw.
Arrows will fly. Swords will swing. Heroes will fall. Legends will survive. And the Holy Land will never be the same.
1190 AD: Richard the Lionheart has launched his epic crusade to seize Jerusalem from the cruel Saracens. Marching with the vast royal army is Britain's most famous, most feared, most ferocious warrior: the Outlaw of Nottingham, the Earl of Locksley -- Robin Hood himself.
With his band of loyal men at his side, Robin cuts a bloody swathe on the brutal journey east. Daring and dangerous, he can outwit and outlast any foe -- but the crimson battlefields of the Holy Land are the ultimate proving ground. And within Robin's camp lurks a traitor -- a stealthy enemy determined to slay Christendom's greatest outlaw before the trumpets fade.
Blazingly paced and richly imagined, featuring a cast of unforgettable characters and packed with fast, furious action, Holy Warrior is adventure at its thrilling, white-knuckle best.
Praise for Outlaw
'This retelling of the Robin Hood myth has more of the ring of truth than the numerous green-tight-clad images we have been exposed to over nearly 100 years of film and television adaptations. Well written, realistically portrayed, and thoroughly entertaining, I think Outlaw is going to rival the best from Bernard Cornwall and Conn Iggulden'. [Sean Cotcher LB National Account Manager]
