Bran ap Brychan , the son of Elfael King, the heir of kingdom of Wales, is hunted by Norman invaders after his father and all his military men are slaughtered. Bran has to abandon his throne and flee to the forest with a ransom on his head.
Stepping into the forest of the Welsh borders where dangers, secrets and powers are surrounding him, Bran comes to know that he needs to survive and overcome all the mysteries in the ancient land to take over his pride, protect his family’s honor and defeat the Norman invaders in his kingdom.
For centuries, the legend of Robin Hood and his band of thieves has captivated the imagination. Now the familiar tale takes on new life, fresh meaning, and an unexpected setting.
Hunted like an animal by Norman invaders, Bran ap Brychan, heir to the throne of Elfael, has abandoned his father’s kingdom and fled to the greenwood. There, in the primeval forest of the Welsh borders, danger surrounds him, for this woodland is a living, breathing entity with mysterious powers and secrets, and Bran must find a way to make it his own if he is to survive.
Like the forest itself, Hood is deep, dark, and at times savagely brutal, yet full of enchantment and hope. Internationally acclaimed author Stephen R. Lawhead has created a lyrical rendering of a time-honored story that will lead you down strange pathways into another place and time.
