Sir Guy of Gisbourne is back!
Bent on vengeance against Robin Hood and with a turncoat new lieutenant in tow, an unlikely new hero must stand up for herself....
Yorkshire, England - AD 1323
The greenwood has been quiet, and the outlaws have become complacent, but the harsh reality of life is about to hit the companions with brutal, deadly force, thanks to their old foe, Prior John de Monte Martini.
From a meeting with King Edward II himself to the sheriff's tournament with its glittering prize, the final, fatal, showdown fast approaches for the legendary Wolf's Head.
New friends, shattered loyalties, and a hate-fueled hunter who threatens to wipe out not only Robin's companions but his entire family will all play their part in the Rise of the Wolf.

A great book
Too many to list
The fight with Sir Guy of Gisbourne
Another excellent offering from Steven McKay. He has a very engaging way of telling a story so it never drags or gets boring. The tale holds one's attention to the end.
Descriptions are vivid and graphic yet most likely accurate to the period. One really gets the feeling one is there with the characters. The story also gives a sharp impression impression what it must have been like in those times.
Let me not say anymore. Read it for yourself !!!
Great Legend Retelling
The archery tournament.
He got better with each book, and he's read the whole series.
Rise of the Wolf
This is a faithful capture of the Robin Hood legend. The characters are fantastic. It's brilliantly paced, too. I laughed and cried, and couldn't put it down.
I usually like my heroes to be real people and my novels based, however loosely, on fact. However, this series has had me hooked from the first paragraph of book one, to the last word in this, the third of the series of four.
Robin Hood and his band of outlaws are a surprisingly likeable bunch of human beings, you can feel for the characters, and find yourself rooting for them when faced with authority, which, to me, is a sign of excellent workmanship by the author.
For me the series contains the perfect balance of action, intrigue and just a little romance. Perfection.
I really cannot wait for book four, although I feel a little sad that it will be the last.
I would recommend this book to any reader who enjoys historical novels, be it Roman, Egyptian, etc. I came out of my comfort zone and was very pleasantly surprised. You will be too.
Both my husband and I use this account; I love Terry Pratchett, and my husband is a historical fiction fan, and we both love classic lit.
Thoroughly enjoyed the performance. This series reminds me a lot of the Sharpe series, in that it's a well characterised romp through pseudo history that you know the hero will be alright in the end. Relaxing and fun listen with great action.
"The story continues...."
Another great story read by a wonderful character voice master. The adventure continues on with Robin full up against Sir Guy.
Usually by the end of a trilogy you just want it to be over. In this one this whole book was the climax. It was incredible. It made you want to listen to the very end and made you wonder how everything was going to work out in the end. I am excited for the next book to come along and finish everything up. I love the plot of this one as some characters are brought back and how he ties everything together. He allows the characters who are fully developed to do what they do best and what they should do. It is intense and makes you want to be a part of the story.
I can't compare it to anything that I've read because I haven't read many books from this time period.
Allen Adele in this one was my favorite. He was a big part of the book but when he narrates him you can tell that he is a jovial being.
When Robin realizes that someone is in danger and he does everything he can to stop that person from harming them. Then his whole family helps bring him down. It was incredible
