Tuck by Stephen Lawhead

I can’t believe it is tour time already.  It really snuck up on me this time.  We’re looking at Tuck by Stephen R. Lawhead

From Amazon:

King Raven has brought hope to the oppressed people of Wales–and fear to their Norman overlords. Along the way Friar Tuck has been the stalwart supporter of King Raven–bringing him much-needed guidance, wit, and faithful companionship.

Filled with unforgettable characters, breathtaking suspense, and rousing battle scenes, Stephen R. Lawhead’s masterful retelling of the Robin Hood legend reaches its stunning conclusion in Tuck. Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Lawhead’s trilogy conjures up an ancient past while holding a mirror to contemporary realities. Prepare for an epic tale that dares to shatter everything you thought you knew about Robin Hood.

Deceived by the self-serving King William and hunted by the treacherous Abbot Hugo and Sheriff de Glanville, Rhi Bran is forced to take matters into his own hands as King Raven. Aided by Tuck and his small but determined band of forest-dwelling outlaws, he ignites a rebellion that spreads through the Welsh valleys, forcing the wily monarch to marshal his army and march against little Elfael.

While I don’t necessarily subscribe to the thought that everything that Lawhead touches is golden, he is definitely a talented author and this book will not disappoint. 

This should definitely be on your to-read list if you like Robin Hood (the legent) and have read the previous two books in the series: Hood and Scarlet.
