KING'S ASSASSIN: A Novel of Robin HoodANGUS DONALD Book Number: 85253 Product format: Paperback
AD 1215, the year of Magna Carta, and Robin Hood's greatest battle. There is a yoke of tyranny and King John is scheming to reclaim his ancestral lands in Europe, raising the money for new armies by bleeding dry peasants and nobles alike, not least the Earl of Locksley, the former outlaw Robin Hood, and his loyal man, Sir Alan Dale. As rebellion brews across the country and Robin Hood and his men are dragged into the war against the French in Flanders, a plan is hatched that will bring the former outlaws and their families to the brink of catastrophe - a plan to kill the king. England explodes into bloody civil war, and Alan and Robin must decide who to trust, and who to slaughter. While Magna Carta might be the answer to their prayers for peace, first they will have to force the king to submit to the will of his people. We hear the roar of revolution, thrilling fighting scenes, intrigue and romance in this popular Outlaw Chronicles series. Includes author's historical notes. 548pp in paperback, map.
