About This Book
Forget everything you've ever heard about Robin Hood . . .
Mystery surrounds the disappearance of young Robin's family. He grows up wild, his only friend the headstrong daughter of the aristocrat Delbosque family: Marian. Robin and Marian are more than friends; they're soul mates. Their bond is pushed to the limit when Marian is captured and locked up by the Sheriff, a powerful and fearsome man who feeds his horses on human flesh, and rides under the blazon of the wolf. Rescuing Marian will have severe consequences, and Robin must learn the ways of the forest to ensure they both survive.
The first book of a trilogy, Shadow of the Wolf is a breathtakingly original — and utterly compelling — retelling of the Robin Hood legend.
