Their merciless attack, the first of many to come, heralds a dark and desperate day for the realm of Elfael. Bran and his few stalwarts desperately need encouragement and reinforcement if they are to survive. But Friar Tuck, a most unconventional priest, has a daring solution to their dilemma that will radically alter all we've known about the legendary figure known as Robin Hood.
Filled with unforgettable characters, breathtaking suspense, and rousing battle scenes, Stephen R. Lawhead's masterful retelling of the Robin Hood legend reaches its stunning conclusion in Tuck. Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Lawhead's trilogy conjures up an ancient past while holding a mirror to contemporary realities. Prepare to hear an epic tale that dares to shatter everything you thought you knew about Robin Hood.
Thus epic and brilliant trilogy deserves a spot on the shelf of anyone who values contemporary literature that is actually worth reading. Tuck, the third and final entry of this unique take on the legend of Robin Hood, delivers an end betting the quality the first two demonstrated. The reader was also a pleasure to hear.
This is a captivating story and the reader does an amazing job of using many different voices and not mixing them up. It is thoroughly entertaining and uplifting. You have to listen to the entire trilogy - it is great.
Great into the trilogy. Narrative was slightly slowed down in the previous two books. Much better.
The performance threw me off because the pronunciations of certain people and places were different from the previous two audiobooks. If I hadn't been reading along with an actual book, who knows how long it would have taken me to catch on. Also, the plot had a passing issue. it was very slow for the longest while, and then had a very fun but very speedy rap up. Still, the final book was very satisfying!
this is a very well done series well researched great narrator the only bad thing about it is that there are no more books to listen to
great book and listen I have enjoyed this trilogy and looking for more great work by this author
Good ending. I enjoyed this trilogy. The story was quite good and the performance was excellent.
Guess I'm supposed to try to make this longer than I already have.
However, I really said all that I wish to say about my enjoyment or criticism of this audio book.
Tuck by Stephen R. Lawhead is the great conclusion to the King Raven Trilogy. Hi Bran Y Hud and his men Tuck, Scarlett and a minstrel named Alan Dale travel to Bran's mother's kin to gain their support and an army to help reclaim their lands. First though they have to rescue King Gruffyd from his 8 year imprisonment. things do not work out the way they should, meanwhile the Marshall and Sheriff are making their moves on the band of so called outlaws, Merian is trying to convince her brother King Garran to lend troops to help Bran reclaim his rightful lands, and King William the red is plotting war against Rhi Bran Y Hud and his men. Tuck may well be the only one who can save them all. Well narrated by Adam Verner, Tuck is a brilliantly, well told story and another historical fantasy masterpiece by Stephen R. Lawhead, and is the best version of the Robin Hood legend I have ever read. It is definitely not a children's tale.
If you could sum up Tuck in three words, what would they be?
Right over wrong.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Bran. He is the foremost hero in the trilogy.
What does Adam Verner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I have little time available for reading so listening to audiobooks allows me to take in stories that I wood not otherwise read. Adam Verner's performance was well done and not at all a hinderance to my enjoyment.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I came close to doing that but one must sleep between work days.
Any additional comments?
I good and interesting take on a lifelong favourite. Part 3 of a good trilogy.
I really enjoyed all three if these tales. I have listened to them several times and shall again.
