Part of the King Raven Trilogy series
Driven from their ancestral homeland, outlaw Rhi Bran and his band have made their home in the forest of the March, and are feared by all for their unrivalled skill with the longbow.
But they cannot hide forever. Bold action is required, and they are willing to die in order to win peace for the people of Elfael. Bran's companions include the mighty champion Iwan, skilled forester Will Scarlet, rough-and-ready priest Friar Tuck and, new to the band, vagabond minstrel Alan a'Dale.
Together they have constructed a desperate plan to rid themselves of the barbarous Ffreinc, led by the malevolent Abbot Hugo and Guy of Gysburne.
Severely outnumbered, the band must rely on their wits, their intimate knowledge of the forest, and all their fighting prowess if they are to prevail.

Review by bookswamp
A wonderful follow-up to Mary Stewarts Merlin Trilogy, which I just read for the umpteenth time. While Merlin and Arthur are fighting against the Saxon invadors in the 5th century, 1000 years later the Anglo-Saxons as the "true Britishers" now fight a gruesome war against the Invadors from Normandy/France - 1000 years later again: nowadays, who is who?The Robin Hood story itself as presented here seems to be the one and only true story, so beautifully is it set and developed, (and also gives a good lesson in history!).
