Overview

THE LEGEND IS REAL

Since the 14th century, Robin Hood has proven to be one of the most enduring and versatile folk heroes. Medieval historians believed Robin lived during the 12th or 13th century but despite decades of intense research by contemporary scholars, solid evidence has never been found.

Until now.

Logan Daggett, son of Donald Daggett, well known CEO of one of Australia's largest international corporations, has his 21st birthday celebrations disrupted by a family tragedy, the revelation of his mother's decades-old secret—and a birthday gift of a collection of centuries-old family heirlooms. This series of events contrive to change the course of his life forever.

Accompanied by his two closest friends, the young Aussie sets out to uncover the truth behind the accident that irrevocably changed his life, and to research the authenticity of the priceless heirlooms, completely unaware of the adventure and dangers lurking around every corner.

During the course of their journey they uncover irrefutable evidence that causes further turmoil among the family, spark controversy among medieval scholars worldwide, and the potential of sparking upheaval to a country's history and creating conflict between two nations.

About the Author

Liam Cadoc has always had a fascination for history and writing, and it was after visiting England several years ago that he was inspired to combine both interests. This is his first attempt at historical fiction and over the years what was originally one book became a two-book set. Thankfully his recent retirement provided Cadoc with the time to complete the writing of book one and to begin laying out the story for book two, the sequel.
Cadoc's aim throughout the process was to combine a good proportion of historical fact with the story's fiction, while developing what he hopes readers will consider to be a lively action-filled adventure by the characters.
Unable to personally visit some of the locations for his book, he was able to contact a number of extremely helpful people who were only too happy to provide local information regarding terrain, historical details, etc.
Cadoc currently lives in Central Florida, USA.

Greg Smith, originally from Sydney, Australia has lived in the United States for over 20 years. Now retired, he notched up over 40 years experience as a graphic designer in the publishing industry both in Australia and United States. In Australia he was art director for one of the country's biggest publishers, later becoming half of a two-man art studio that vied with major advertising companies to win a contract with the Henson Organization to produce promotional artwork for The Muppets, Baby Muppets, Fraggle Rock, and The Dark Crystal for the Pacific region.
Smith currently lives with his wife in The Villages, Central Florida, USA. He spends most of his time working on commissioned portraits, his own artwork, and writing.
