Hood by Venables Toby
The vendetta with Robin Hood has cost too much: blood shed lives lost friendships severed. Guy of Gisburne knight and agent of the crown has had enough and wishes to enjoy a little quiet on his own land. But Hood grows ever more troublesome and if the barons of the North will not convince Guy to resume the hunt - nor even the rightful King Richard returned from long imprisonment - then perhaps the simple plea of a missing daughter's father and a promise to restore a good man's name will. Hood has gathered an army: the insidious Friar Took the giant John Lyttel the cutthroat Scarlet Will the brilliant and unhinged Alan O'Doyle among others. Guy will need an army of his own: the redoubtable de Rosseley the deadly Lady Melisande the resourceful Asif ibn Salah even Guy's former enemy the ferocious Tancred...and his old friend and squire Galfrid. The stage is set: Sherwood long a home to both men. The final confrontation begins...
