Robin Hood gave up being a hero when he left Sherwood Forest, thirteen years ago. The old stories are already distorted and half forgotten. King John has made certain of that.
Struggling to keep his family and the remains of his pride in a world increasingly indifferent to his name, the one thing Robin doesn’t anticipate is a dangerous ghost from his past. The reappearance of his old enemy Guy de Gisborne represents not just mortal danger but the chance of heroism again, but at what cost?
When their renewed hostilities stir up the King’s suspicions, Robin finds himself on the run across Europe in the unwelcome company of the one man he does not understand and can never trust. Will Robin redeem the tarnished title of King of Sherwood, or will Gisborne’s slowly unravelling obsession lose him home, family and his reputation forever?
