Item description for Scarlet (King Raven Trilogy V2) by Stephen Lawhead...

With the Normans threatening to overrun Wales, forester Will Scarlet is being sentenced to die for a crime he didn't commit unless he betrays King Raven and his followers, and Bran ap Brychan makes a secret voyage to France to uncover a plot against the king.

Publishers Description

After losing everything he owns, forester Will Scarlet embarks on a search for none other than King Raven, whose exploits have already become legendary. After fulfilling his quest--and proving himself a skilled and loyal companion--Will joins the heroic archer and his men.

Now, however, Will is in prison for a crime he did not commit. His sentence is death by hanging--unless he delivers King Raven and his band of cohorts.

That, of course, he will never do.

Wales is slowly falling under the control of the invading Normans, and King William the Red has given his ruthless barons control of the land. In desperation, the people turn to King Raven and his men for justice and survival in the face of the ever-growing onslaught.

From deep in the forest they form a daring plan for deliverance, knowing that failure means death for them all.

"Scarlet "continues Stephen R. Lawhead's riveting saga that began with the novel "Hood, "which relocated the legend of Robin Hood to the Welsh countryside and its dark forests. Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Lawhead's trilogy conjures up an ancient past and holds a mirror to contemporary realities. Prepare for an epic tale that dares to shatter everything you thought you knew about Robin Hood.

Reviews - What do customers think about Scarlet (King Raven Trilogy V2)?

I loved this book!  Oct 15, 2008
This is the second book in the King Raven Trilogy, and it was stunning. One must keep in mind that the book switches perspectives off and on throughout, but Lawhead does it with class. Essentially, however, it is told through Will Scarlet's point of view (who does not seem to be related to Bran in any way), about how he came to become part of King Raven's band of men and was eventually captured. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat till the end, and you'll be wanting to pick up the third installment, Tuck, as you as you can get your hands on it (February 2009).
4 1/2 Stars  Oct 9, 2008
This continues to be my favorite series in recent memory. This book is every bit as outstanding as the first installment, better in some areas and worse in others.

On the positive side you see even more the villainy of the Frankish overlords and are given all the more someone to hate. The romance between Will and Noin is also a nice addition to the story. Now I had a hard time at first getting into the way the story is told, mostly through the eyes of Will. That said, it wasn't very long before I went from struggling with it to loving the character and the book.

Now my one complaint though does come from the fact that so much of the story comes from Will's PoV. There are small asides from other perspectives, but almost all of them are enemy PoVs. I would have liked to spend some more time with Bran, or even some of the other villagers getting to know more the perspective and life of the Grellon themselves.

That slow start and small complain aside, the dialogue is still wonderful, character development continues to be nice, and the story is just so engaging. My only problem now is waiting for the next installment!
Great followup to Hood  Oct 1, 2008
King Raven Trilogy: Book 2.

Great followup to Hood continues the tail of Rhi Bran di Hud (Robin Hood to our English ears). Lawhead keeps the action fast paced but not intensely tight, the suspenseful confrontations intense but as often resolved with humor and deception as with resort to violence.

The third book, Tuck, is due to close the series by 2009. I will anticipate it eagerly.
Epic  Sep 24, 2008
after reading this book, you feel like everything you thought you knew about robin hood was just a fairy tale...and this was the history you wanted him to exist in!
Even better than Hood  Sep 16, 2008
I thought that this was much better than "Hood". The narrative was pretty cool, as it was written as an auto-biography. I also liked how the origin of Robin Hood made its appearance from the mis-pronunciation of the Welsh. I can't wait for "Tuck".
