Legends chronicle Robin Hood and Guy of Gisbourne as the deadliest of enemies.
The reality is… complicated.

Home razed by Church edict, loved ones struck down by treachery, Rob is left for dead. Taken by the old druid master into the deeps, he emerges with a new name and purpose: leader of a band of tight-knit outcasts, claiming the ancient forest and wielding the Horned God’s vengeance with silent, deadly arrows. Also escaping the aftermath of Loxley’s destruction, Gamelyn has returned from Crusade with his own new identity and purpose–but no absolution.

When the two boyhood lovers next cross paths, a brutal, blindfolded game of foxes and hounds ensues, pitting Templar assassin against Heathen outlaw. And as Robyn discovers his sister Marion is still alive, the game turns.

Thwarted kings of a breaking realm, Robyn Hode and Guy de Gisbourne must restore the Maiden to her rightful place– and manage to not destroy each other in the process.

Book 2 of the Wode
In a truly original take on the Robin Hood legends, this historical fantasy series sets Robin the outlaw archer as a queer, chaotic-neutral druid; Marion as pagan queen who is sister but not wife, and their consort a Christian–and thusly conflicted–nobleman.
