Richard the Lionheart captured on his way home from the crusade, languishes in chains somewhere in Germany. England is on the brink of civil war as Richard’s traitorous brother Prince John schemes to take the throne. Only one man can stop him: a former outlaw, a renegade earl, a man who scoffs at Holy Mother Church: Robin Hood. The mission is deadly; their enemies are all powerful. But Robin and his loyal lieutenant Alan Dale will risk all – from barely human assassins and vengeful Knights Templar to the foul magical spells of a hideous witch – to restore the Lionheart to his throne.
