    With this volume, Lawhead continues his deft re imagining of the Robin Hood legend, set in the Welsh Marches of the late 1000s There s no second book in the trilogy slump here the story arc moves steadily forward, and the telling is suspenseful and well paced All of the general comments from my review of the series opener, Hood, would apply here as well This is both solidly researched histori

    When I was a boy we lived on a farm There were no public libraries where I could go and money was tightso books were a bit scarce The small school library, a World Book EncyclopediaProgressive Farmer magazine and a few books around the house were all I had access to In the summer I often reread books I d read before, but there was one set of books to access My dad s mother had purchased for him

    I enjoyed Hood the first book in this series and stuck with it until the end of the book, but it didn t instantly inspire me to pick up book two So it was several months before I found myself leafing through the first pages of Scarlet, but oh how glad I am that I did.Here Will Scarlet takes the lead narrative and POV I think the hardest thing for me to swallow with this series is that it is a Robin

    Oh, Stephen Lawhead, how I love your books.Lawhead s latest project is a re telling of the Robin Hood legend This is the second book in the trilogy, told from the perspective of Will Scarlet A good deal of the story is relayed, by Scarlet, to a monk he refers to as Odo while he is imprisoned.I consistently enjoy Stephen Lawhead s storytelling style, as well as...

    I m really loving this series I had a hard time putting this book down I like how Lawhead writes and I especially love how he weaves in the Celtic theme At times, I feel like I m there, as if I m one of the inner circle fighting the good fight alongside Bran and company I love that quality in a book, probablythan any other I can say my delight with the King Raven series is my passion for anything Celtic

    Scarlet is at least an improvement over Hood There are sympathetic characters and an actual plotline, even if it s near hopelessly muddied by transitions between Scarlet as narrator and actual third person omniscient in two separate chunks of timeline.Scarlet s verbal tics calling people fella and using en t for isn t come and go, never ceasing to be jarring or managing to sound like anything other than a f

    Accidentally hit something that deleted my review before I saved it Grrrrr I read the book that comes before this one, Hood, and began this one right away I was kind of disappointed that instead of going right on from the previous book which ended rather abruptly, this one began a year or two later with Bran s man known as Will Scarlet, captured by the sheriff and soon to be hanged I should explain that this s

    23Jan154.5 starsThe decision to change the narrative scheme from the first book where everything was told in third person to Will narrating the majority of the tale to a priest while he s in prison was a very interesting choice It really served to drive home the fact that this was a very different character from Bran Will told his story very well and I immediately liked him I continued to find little gems that ha

    As bad as the first, but painfully narrated in Lawhead s approximation of a Yorkshire accent The result is, if anything,like bastardized West Country than Northern It s like expecting Richard Sharpe and getting Hagrid on weed.

    Overall, I liked Scarlet about ten times as well as I liked Hood It still took me months to read, but this time it was because I had to set it aside to read a few things that I had a deadline for However, this book was exciting and enjoyable, with a great mix of danger and emotion, and even some fun here and there This book is narrated by Will Scatlocke, aka Will Scarlet, whom I became very fond of indeed He was such a
