“Pray God our aim is true and each arrow finds its mark.”

The final installment of a completely reimagined epic of the man known as Robin Hood, told in a far more eerie, earthy, and elemental way than ever before.

The story of Rhi Bran y Hud—Robin Hood—concludes as Abbot Hugo and the Norman invaders attempt to wipe out King Raven and his flock once and for all. Their merciless attack, the first of many to come, heralds a dark and desperate day for the realm of Elfael. Bran and his few stalwarts desperately need encouragement and reinforcement if they are to survive. But Friar Tuck, a most unconventional priest, has a daring solution to their dilemma that will radically alter all we’ve known about the legendary figure known as Robin Hood.

Filled with unforgettable characters, breathtaking suspense, and rousing battle scenes, Stephen R. Lawhead’s masterful retelling of the Robin Hood legend reaches its stunning conclusion in Tuck. Steeped in Celtic mythology and the political intrigue of medieval Britain, Lawhead’s trilogy conjures up an ancient past while holding a mirror to contemporary realities. Prepare to hear an epic tale that dares to shatter everything you thought you knew about Robin Hood.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tabitha | 2/19/2014

    " Not at all what I expected, but a great ending to the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ginn | 2/16/2014

    " I've got to say, I love the idea of a Welsh Robin Hood, and I love this interpretation of the myth. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 2/2/2014

    " Very good. I enjoyed the whole series. Very different twist on the tale of Robin Hood. I love all the history and lore in it. I highly recommend this book and series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/31/2014

    " Another amazing book by Lawhead. Loved this Robin Hood series! Here's a quote from this book, p. 334, "In hope we do abide. As children of the Swift Sure Hand, hope is our true home. Hope is the treasure of our souls." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 1/16/2014

    " This is the third and final book in the King Raven series and it finishes the series very well. I was not that impressed with the first book (it could be because I was visiting my daughter and so wasn't reading it very fast). I really liked the second book partly because it was told in a very interesting way in the first person by Will Scadlocke (or Scarlet). I was a little afraid that I wasn't going to like this book as well when it reverted to the third person, but fortunately that wasn't the case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sadie | 1/11/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book and all the books in this triology. A great end to the Robin Hood tale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dale | 1/10/2014

    " A good read but not a great read. I was expecting more from this series and now that I have finished it I am not sure why. It is a good to see the famous Robin Hood turned into a more realistic rendition of a possible past and I always love a good historical fiction as it is. The story has been so well covered by hollywood ever 10 years though that the story line is tediously boring and predictable. Lawhead is one of the very best writers out there. I can't take that away from him. His Byzantium novel was the first book that I ever read in which I could "smell" and "feel" the words on paper. There is some of that here but this series is not even 1/10 of that book. I am left feeling as if one of my paper heroes masks have fallen from their face but I still appreciate the skill and wisdom contained but I doubt now that I could ever read another of his works with such anticipation again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 1/8/2014

    " Entertaining enough - the entire series feels fresh given the Robin Hood tales aren't frequently tread in historical fiction, but Lawhead's writing leaves a lot to be desired. "

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

    " Lawhead puts a Welsh twist on the familiar tale, and it comes off well. After a bit of mysticism in the first book of the trilogy, he brings the story around and gives more flavor to the Scarlet, O'Dale and Father Tuck characters, and less so the hero. Nice read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frode | 12/13/2013

    " A bit fantastic in spots, but Lawhead usually pushes the envelope. I liked it, and it brougth the series to a nice end. "

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

    " My favorite of the three - if you have put in the effort of a trilogy, the final book shoudl feel satisfying and wrap up all the plot points. This did it with a bang! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy | 11/16/2013

    " I am very satisfied with this whole series. Very interesting, very suspenceful, a truly worthy book to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 10/14/2013

    " Nice take on Robin Hood. Very Welsh... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenna | 6/8/2013

    " AMAZING!!!!!!! Loved it so much! I read it in a day. Definitely the best one of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheri-lee | 11/22/2012

    " Aye, it's a good read en't it? :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 11/7/2012

    " Good ending to the trilogy. Although the middle book drug a little, this picked up and rounded things out nicely. This isn't literature that will change the world, but it was a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Mckeever | 11/5/2012

    " Could not put it down. This is my favorite trilogy. I agree with other's reviews... This is the best book of the trio. You'll be sorry when it's done. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 6/30/2012

    " Probably the best book of the trilogy. While at some points you could tell he was just trying to pull the darn story together - and the writing sometimes was a tad clunky - overall a well crafted story. I thought the resolution was nicely done. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J. Tobias | 5/11/2012

    " A great ending to a great series. Friar Tuck takes on a central role and the Cymry triumph, though not in the way you might expect. Recommended! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Johnson | 4/25/2012

    " Lots of action and a good resolve--the book ended where it started off. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daniel Bacon | 3/31/2012

    " Lawhead masterfully finishes the series with a scathing review of the church during the time period. I loved it, and thought it came off as very believable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 3/17/2012

    " What a fantastic way to end this series! I feel the need to go back and read all of the books by Lawhead that I have and then get the ones that I don't have! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 12/31/2011

    " The end of the trilogy left me wanting more, but in a good way. =) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 5/17/2011

    " Oh, it was a marvelous ending to the series! It could have been about twice as long, though... And I wish it included an account of Robin and Mèrian's wedding, but well-a-day, 'twas still incredible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 5/2/2011

    " My favorite of the three - if you have put in the effort of a trilogy, the final book shoudl feel satisfying and wrap up all the plot points. This did it with a bang!

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Redsteve | 4/18/2011

    " A very satisfying end to the King Raven trilogy, even if the epilogue felt a bit tacked-on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 3/19/2011

    " Finishing the tale of Robin and the outcome of the uprising....Start at the first of triology if you are going to read as some background is necessary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deveny | 3/18/2011

    " Well, by the third book it all seemed rather predictable, and there was not a lot of depth of character, but I still loved it, and I enjoyed, at the end how the author showed how a story an change and grow over time to the legends we know now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rae | 1/1/2011
