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. 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. Lawhead’s trilogy conjures up an ancient past and holds a mirror to contemporary realities. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 2/15/2014

    " The second book in the Raven King trilogy. Stealing from the rich, giving to the poor, fighting the sheriff, the abbot, the baron, the duke, the king all in the name of justice and Welsh sovereignty. Longbows, gallows and disguises gives this book a more traditional Robin Hoody feel than the first in the series, delivered in a historically accurate, not overly romanticized style. If you can divide historical fiction into ladies books and men's books, this would fall pretty firmly in the men's camp. But ladies, if you're into medieval weaponry and righteous anger, this series is for you. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherie | 2/13/2014

    " This is the second in the King Raven Trilogy...I enjoyed it just as much at the first...Hood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vincent O'brien | 2/2/2014

    " Admirable second part of the trilogy. It fleshes out someone,who in my humble opinion has never been more than a bit player of a merry man,and introduces Lawhead's version of "The Sheriff". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Jukes | 1/30/2014

    " Nice middle to the trilogy. Rhi Bran's character has solidified into a true leader and the tension and scope has been elevated in anticipation of the third instalment. Will Scarlet is the most likeable character I've read in a long while. Come to my house for dinner Will! "

    " Once again, I have to express how much I hate rating a book with stars. I gave this book one star because I didn't like it, but that's not to say it's a bad book. I mostly felt the same frustrations reading this that I felt reading the first book in this series; I felt it was too long; I didn't like the switching of the point of views all the time; it seems like the romantic attachments either take too long to form or form very, very quickly, leaving me feeling confused. And one more thing crossed a line for me: [Some] of this book was told in first person... where the first book was told in third person omniscient. Not only that, but then this book switched point of views, tenses, and narrations! It drove me INSANE! I did not like that at all. All things considered, I still like the Welsh Robin Hood idea, but I was also frustrated that we saw nothing happen between Bran and Merian in this book really. It was implied, but not shown, which made me angry because I did not get near enough of that in the first book! So I was annoyed by this book. It took me a long time to read. Hence the one star. Not that this book is wrong for everyone, though. I might suggest to a few people if they ask... maybe. "

    " I finished this book a few months ago... and as such, don't remember the exacts of what to say about it... I enjoy the twist on the Robin Hood tale, and will continue reading into the third segment as soon as it comes out in paperback. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosa | 1/4/2014

    " This is such a fun series. I enjoyed reading each book. The writing is excellent, has an old English feel to the prose. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/21/2013

    " Love will scarlet telling his tale "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 12/10/2013

    " This was the 2nd book in the triology of King Raven. Great story told from the character Will Scarlet's perspective. Stephen R. Lawhead manages to keep his readers interested from beginning to end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 12/5/2013

    " Nice, clean (in every way) quick read. Somewhat entertaining, but not one I feel I'll be compelled to read again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 12/4/2013

    " This was a little slow in parts, but was still a good transitional book in the series. It sets the scene for the final book, and since the Robin Hood legend seems to have no real "ending" I'm interested to see where this goes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 11/17/2013

    " Second book of the trilogy. This is my personal favorite of the three. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 11/16/2013

    " MUCH better than the first one. Some action actually took place! Really came to know and love several original characters and the way most of it was narrated gave the opportunity to get to know and love others like: Odo and Will. Very nice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shane | 11/6/2013

    " Good book, and I'm ready to read the third book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey Richardson | 9/4/2013

    " Favorite Quote: "Thou, a bright flame before me be, Thou, a guiding star above me be, Thou, a smooth path below me be, And Thou, a stout shield behind me be, Today, tonight, and ever more." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adán Tejada | 7/16/2012

    " I didn't like it as much as the first in the series, or as much as the third. The "voice" didn't work for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aycock | 6/22/2012

    " Liked this one even better than the first in the series. More romance, less death! The romance between Will Scarlet and Noin is beautiful and most of the book it's just Will talking to a monk, telling him about his life etc. Then towards the end it gets really good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 3/29/2012

    " Still a bit slow moving, but getting more interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Grace E | 2/8/2012

    " pretty good so far. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea | 1/4/2012

    " This book doesnt exactly pick up where the last one left off, but it was very good anyways, I think he left some things out so they could be in the last book. I love the way Bran has changed and Will i think is one of my favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Bacon | 8/19/2011

    " I loved this, I read it shortly after I finished Hood and the nature of the writing style pulled me in, in a different way than Hood, but none the less wonderfully. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Auri | 7/28/2011

    " I liked Will Scarlet's narrative. On to the third book! "

    " Excellent P.O.V. switch to the character Will Scarlet. The end left me hanging and I was all-but obsessed with reading the final instalment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 1/21/2011

    " Second book of the trilogy. This is my personal favorite of the three. "

    " Really good and fun, but a bit predictable and too much action. "
