  An Ancient Myth Retold
Keagen White of Washougal, 8/25/2016
This is the first Lawhead book that I have read and I can't wait to read the other ones in the trilogy. The time, place, and story are different from the originally told myth, but this one almost seems to go better. I have always been interested in the story of Robin Hood and this new twist is loaded with Celtic lore. Everyone I know that has read this loves it and so do I. If you have not read this before then you should.

Tis the first time I've read this book and I enjoyed it very much. It is an interesting twist on an old story. Stephen Lawhead did a wonderful job at making the characters and settings realistic and engaging. I think this book, as well as the rest of the trilogy, can be enjoyed by young and older adults who enjoy being on the edge of their seats. There is a touch of romance that some people may not like.
