Publisher's Summary

Arrows will fly. Swords will swing. Heroes will fall. Legends will survive. And the Holy Land will never be the same.1190 AD: Richard the Lionheart has launched his epic crusade to seize Jerusalem from the cruel Saracens. Marching with the vast royal army is Britain's most famous, most feared, most ferocious warrior: the Outlaw of Nottingham, the Earl of Locksley - Robin Hood himself. With his band of loyal men at his side, Robin cuts a bloody swathe on the brutal journey east. Daring and dangerous, he can outwit and outlast any foe - but the crimson battlefields of the Holy Land are the ultimate proving ground.

And within Robin's camp lurks a traitor - a stealthy enemy determined to slay Christendom's greatest outlaw before the trumpets fade. Blazingly paced and richly imagined, featuring a cast of unforgettable characters and packed with fast, furious action, Holy Warrior is adventure at its thrilling, white-knuckle best.

For Outlaw: "A lively and enjoyable book." (Daily Mail)

"A tale well told via the thoughts of a flawed hero... not a read for the squeamish." (Nottinghamshire Today)

    "My favorite of the series"

    For reason or another, I think this is my favorite of the series. It might be because the structure of the crusade gives me a linear line over Europe the map the events. In the other books in the series it takes a bit more efforth to locate the story.
    Highly recommended series! Note: if you are a new listener, go find "Outlaw" book from the same author. It is the first on this series.

    "Pretty good"

    Apart from a few bits I thought were gratuitously, misogynistically, violent, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Which is good because I've already bought the next two!

    I really like the voice characterisations by Graham Padden and I very often find I'm more likely to buy books with the same voice artist rather than the same author simply because the performance is every bit as important as the story in many cases.

    Very, very good!

    "Historical Fiction or Horror story"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the first book of this series but wasn't prepared for the second. I listen to my books on my commute to work, and continually found my self arriving at work horrified about some graphic description or depressed at the continual march of death through out the plot. I understand the book is about war during a brutal time of history, but it was just a little to much. I did not finish listening. I stopped after approx. 3/4 of the story when there was foreshadowing of something horrific to come. The narrator did an outstanding job, however. I do not envy his having to read some sections.

    "misleading"

    overall a good story. However based on the title and the description I was expecting the majority of the book to be about the Expedition and battles to Jerusalem. Not the case. I still enjoyed it.

    "A sequel that is even better than the prequel!"

    I really enjoyed Outlaw, although at times it seemed to drag just a little. Not so for Holy Warrior! Every minute of this book, I found engaging, entertaining and historically informative. I usually listen to these Audiobooks while driving too/ from work. I found myself almost looking forward to my otherwise miserable commute, listening to this book. Well done Angus Donald!

    "A big disappointment after Outlaw"

    I really liked Outlaw and tried to like Holy Warrior, but after listening for many hours to tiresome depictions of extreme sadism and battlefields slick with the entrails of disemboweled horses, I finally concluded that there was no actual plot here, so I stopped listening. It doesn't work as a travelogue or as a story. I would remember the first book with far greater pleasure if I hadn't moved on to the second.
