The sequel in this Robin Hood-series, which is showing me a side of Robin Hood I didn't know. (I have to admit that around my place, it isn't really well known in the first place, other than just 'Stealing from the rich, giving to the poor'). I had won the first book as a preread an thought it to be interesting enough to get myself to the local library and get my hands on this second book as well.
And, it is in line with the first book. Even though Alan looses some of his faith, most of the book is about rough life and fighting. Which can be enjoyable every once in a while. It's a nice and quick read, perfect for between two other (perhaps better) books. It's not your psychologically deep novel, but to be honest, did you expect that after reading the title?
Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book
