Summary

History’s most dangerous outlaw.

England’s most famous ruler.

The year’s most exciting adventure.

The third crusade is over. Richard the Lion heart is bound for England. But with the princes of Europe united against him, can the greatest warrior in Christendom make it safely home?

The Lion is Chained. Captured. Bound. Imprisoned. King Richard's slim hope of salvation rests on one man - a former outlaw who scoffs at Holy Mother Church: Robin Hood. For King and country, Robin will risk all - from blood-soaked battlefields to deadly assassins - to see the Lion heart restored to his rightful throne.

From the internationally best-selling author of Outlaw and Holy Warrior comes a spectacular saga of courage and comradeship that brings the medieval world to roaring life.

A very good story

Held me right to the end lots of twists and turnes. Robin Odo (Hood) always makes a cracking tale

The grittyness of this tale makes you rearly believe in him and how it rearly was in those days and not all gentleman jim stuff. also what put the iceing on the cake for me was the narrator Mike Rogers

Thanks again.

Easy to listen too and great story

What made the experience of listening to King's Man the most enjoyable?

It was such an unusual combination of characters who became more and more plausible as the story developed.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the imaginative way the author wove the legend of Robin Hood into the factual account of Richard the Lionheart's imprisonment and subsequent ransom.

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

No but I intend to!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes although couldn't so it took a couple of days

Any additional comments?

Thank you for including it in your list.

The Kings Man (and Robins,)

Overall not a bad story. Narrator has exactly the right accent for action taking place around Nottingham etc. perhaps not quite as good for the French characters, but not bad overall

It does what it says on the tin...

If you like your Robin Hood Romantic then maybe not for you...

It is an interesting left field take on a great story.

struggling

I am really struggling with this audio book. Although the narration is okay, the voice lacks depth for other characters. The story has a plot twist that I knew before it was revealed and the story is rather dull.

Im currently on the 3rd and final part and am pleased its drawing close to end

Another great entry

Excellent series, new narrator takes a while to get used to but gives a great performance in his own right. Would recommend to any fans of gritty, historical style fiction.

the plot thickens with each layer in the chronicle

another great part of the overall story of Alan's life! this volume is say is the coming of age section! it's no longer just an adventure for Alan it's now his life and he is growing into the boots that Robert had made for him and sometimes he even surprises Robin that he may bed a size bigger! Alan is finally becoming a badass and I can't wait to see what's next!
