Robin Hood rides again . . . in the 10th volume of the Outlaw Chronicles
It with great pleasure, and not a little pride, that I announce the publication today of Robin Hood and the Castle of Bones, the tenth novel of the Outlaw Chronicles series. My new novel is available as an eBook and a paperback exclusively from Amazon, and you can grab a copy by clicking the link here.
I’d better tell you a bit about the story. It takes place a few months after the events in Robin Hood and the Caliph’s Gold and Robin, Alan Dale, Little John, Hanno and the rest of the Sherwood crew are on their way back to England after the the Third Crusade. Our heroes find themselves in Burgundy – the Duchy of Burgundy, not the County of Burgundy on the other side of the River Saone (see map below – it’s the wrong century but gives you the idea), and they quickly become embroiled in the bloody politics of the region.
This is the blurb on the back of the book:
Spring, 1192 – Robin Hood and his band of men, travelling home from the Third Crusade, find themselves in the lush, wine-rich Duchy of Burgundy. When they are captured by a renegade knight, and taken across the River Saone to the rival County of Burgundy, they are plunged into a nightmarish world of treachery, deceit and cold-blooded murder. While the cunning Earl of Locksley plots and schemes to advance King Richard’s cause in the two Burgundies, Alan Dale, his loyal lieutenant and personal trouvère, embarks on a private quest to rescue a damsel in distress and falls foul of the monstrous guardian of the Castle of Bones.
I think it’s a pretty good yarn – a bit spooky but with plenty of gory fights, and young Alan Dale falls hopelessly in love. I hope you’ll all enjoy it. And if you do, would you do me a favour and leave a review on Amazon’s website.
Here’s the link again.
That’s all for now, folks. Enjoy!
Do you think you’ll be able to get this one published in audiobook format also?
Maybe. It’s too early to say. It depends if the audio company (Isis) makes money on the Caliph’s Gold or not. I’ll let you know if I make a deal with them. All the best, Angus
