Outlaw by Angus Donald

Outlaw (The Outlaw Chronicles, #1)Outlaw by Angus Donald
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed this book. I was concerned a Robin Hood book would not be new, but the writing was good and the tale interesting. It had a gritty realism that was good. The outlaws and the Sheriff's men were in small bands that was probably accurate for the period. The book is written from the perspective of Alan Dale which makes it interesting. Alan is quite young at the start of the tale and due to circumstances, a thief. His relationship with Robin and the outlaws develops over a year or so and the tale is nicely interspersed with action. Overall, not bad.
