Sinopsis: The King of the Shire Wode. That is what they will call you...
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, Rob survives to emerge as driven leader of a band of tight-knit outcasts, claiming the forest as their own and wielding the Horned Lord's vengeance with silent, deadly arrows. Gamelyn has fled England, only to return after finding new identity and purpose--but no absolution--on Crusade. When the two boyhood lovers next cross paths, it will be in a brutal, blindfolded game of foxes and hounds, one which pits Templar assassin against Heathen outlaw. When Rob discovers his sister Marion is also still alive, the game turns.
History will chronicle Robin Hood and Guy of Gisbourne as the deadliest of enemies, but the reality is complicated--and infinitely more tragic.
Book Two of The Wode, a historical fantasy series re-imagining the legends of Robin Hood. (2nd edition)
"The strong second installment of Hennig's Wode series continues to reinvent the legend of Robin Hood... Thick with conflict and intrigue, this retelling turns a well-known legend into a fresh, earthy tale of human passions twisted by politics and ancient powers." -- Publishers Weekly
"...I can't recommend this book highly enough. The prose is poetic, powerful, insightful. Hennig has a masterful command of weaponry and battle-speak, as well of wode magic. This is a soul-plumbing, life-changing experience."--The Historical Novel Society Review
"Shirewode is unforgettable. It gives us real magic, used sparingly and strategically, vivid supporting characters, strong female characters, and intense sexual tension between Gisbourne, who is a terrific antihero, and Robyn. It is a worthy sequel to the very good Greenwode, and I highly recommend both books."--Val Kovalin for OmniLit / ARe
