Tuck by Stephen R. Lawhead
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the third and final installment in Lawhead's retelling of the Robin Hood story. I enjoyed this one just as much as the first two. I love the way Lawhead puts this in a historical context and brings it to life in a way that it could have happened.
Tuck pics up right where Scarlet left off. Rhi Bran Y Hud and his followers are still on the run and trying to regain their realm. In the process there are skirmishes as well as undercover dealings that are filled with thrills and humor. There are no dull moments from start to finish. Friar Tuck works tirelessly in his quest to gain peace for Rhi Bran. His prayers for peace are definitely hearfelt and genuine. He is truly a man of God and for his people working to heal them body and soul.
Tuck can be read alone as you are caught up along the way as the story is told. But as the others are great reads I would recommend them all. Tuck, along with the others, is a great retelling of this story full of thrills, humor, sadness, and great deads. If you enjoy a great fun read check out this series.
