Overview

AFTER THE WORLD DIED, THE LEGEND WAS REBORN.

When civilisation shuddered and died, Robert Stokes lost everything, including his wife and his son. The ex-cop retreated into the woods near Nottingham, to live off the land and wait to join his family. As the world descended into a new Dark Age, he turned his back on it all.

The foreign mercenary and arms dealer De Falaise sees England is ripe for conquest. He works his way up the country, forging an army and pillaging as he goes. When De Falaise arrives at Nottingham and sets up his new dominion, Robert is drawn reluctantly into the resistance. From Sherwood he leads the fight and takes on the mantle of the world’s greatest folk hero.

The Hooded Man and his allies will become a symbol of freedom, a shining light in the horror of a blighted world, but he can never rest: De Falaise is only the first of his kind.

This omnibus collects the novels Arrowhead, Broken Arrow and Arrowland, with a new introduction by editor Jonathan Oliver. The ebook edition also exclusively collects the stories ‘Servitor,’ ‘Perfect Presents,’ and ‘Signs and Portents.’

This was a very good series. If you love Robin Hood stories then I definitely recommend this book. If you like apocalyptic-end of the world stories, I highly recommend it. It's three books in one and an absolute page turner. The bonus stories add extra depth to the main story line. The characters a great and the pacing is good. The format may be a little off. Sometimes I had a hard time figuring out who was talking (because of the spacing I think). But despite that it is a great series. It made me whip out my Robin of Sherwood dvds. A must read.

I LOVE Robin Hood! He is one of my childhood heroes and still is to this day. And this story really captures everything that Robin stood for. I can't remember the last time I loved a book so much that I couldn't but it down. The idea that it's a post-apocalyptic Robin Hood is really fascinating. And every character from the original story are given new backgrounds. Example: Robin in this version used to be cop. And villain is so evil I was looking forward to seeing Robin put an arrow in his head. I strongly recommend this to people who love the story of Robin Hood.

I had to stop before I got to page 300. When Robby put an arrow from a flying helicopter through the scope of a sniper on the ground, I had had enough.
