England's bravest monarch, history's deadliest outlaw, this year's greatest adventure.
May 1194: Richard the Lionheart is in Normandy, locked in a long and bloody war with the French. By his side are Robert Odo, Earl of Locksley - the former outlaw Robin Hood - and Sir Alan Dale, Robin's protégé, a musician and warrior of great renown.
As battles rage and bodies pile up, Alan embarks on a mission to track down the man who ordered his father's death 10 years earlier. But the trail leads him to Paris, deep in the heart of enemy territory - where even Robin might not be able to rescue him.
From the dank, witch-haunted depths of Sherwood to the high castles of Aquitaine, from stinking dungeons of medieval Paris to the blood-stained chivalry of the Battle of Gisors, Robin and Alan must prove their mettle as lords of war, defeat their shadowy enemy and win glory for themselves and their lionhearted king.
