Amazon Description:

“A rip-roaring tale . . . full of twists and turns…A fast-moving, thoroughly enjoyable yarn.” —Kirkus Reviews on King’s Man

Robert, Earl of Locksley, returns in Warlord, the latest in Angus Donald’s compelling historical novels, reimagining one of the most indelible figures in folklore—Robin Hood.

King Richard I, the Lionheart, is engaged in a bloody war to drive the French out of Normandy. Using the brutal tactics of medieval warfare—siege, savagery and scorched earth—the Lionheart gradually pushes back the forces of King Philip of France. By his side in this epic struggle are the erstwhile outlaw Robin Hood, and Sir Alan Dale, his loyal friend.

But while the battles rage, Alan is preoccupied with discovering the identity the man who ordered his father’s death ten years earlier—a mystery that leads him towards to Paris, deep into the heart of the enemy’s territory.
