After viciously assaulting a corrupt but powerful clergyman Robin Hood flees the only home he has ever known in Wakefield, Yorkshire. Becoming a member of a notorious band of outlaws, Hood and his new companions - including John Little and Will Scaflock - hide out in the great forests of Barnsdale, fighting for their very existence as the law hunts them down like animals. When they are betrayed, and their harsh lives become even more unbearable, the band of friends seeks bloody vengeance.

A cracking rework of an old tail. Not for kids.

Would you listen to Wolf's Head again? Why?

Yes I would listen to it again. Already have to refresh my memory for the second book of the series. I have now read both books by the author and looking forward to the third.

What other book might you compare Wolf's Head to, and why?

This is the first audio book I have had. The story is in the classic historic fiction style.

Have you listened to any of Nick Ellsworth’s other performances? How does this one compare?

None

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I have had a couple of laughs even though reading the novel the story was familiar.

Any additional comments?

Nick done a great job narrating the book, and even though a reader I would consider an audio book by the author and narrator.
