Review: The Wolf and the Raven by Steven A. McKay

Excellent new review of my second Forest Lord novel by a true fan of historical fiction. Praise like this seriously – seriously! – makes my day. 🙂

  1. I have just discovered the Wolf’s head books, totally by chance. So far I have only read the first in the series, but I enjoyed it SO much. What I love about it is the way that Robin is far from confident, and has his own inner demons to battle against. It is all trial and error for him and he is always anxious about making any decision. I love the way the outlaws must battle their environment, particularly in Winter, as well as cynical, corrupt authorities. Well, there’s just so much to like…..
    I absolutely adored the first series of Robin of Sherwood in the 80s, and this is even better. The outlaws are very far from being ‘merry men’. They barely survive. They can trust no-one. Each of them is full of rage over their being cast out. And the villagers are permanently hungry and living precariously too.
    Apparently, I have another three volumes to enjoy. They will not be enough. I wish there were dozens!
    I absolutely loved this book.

    1. Wow, thank you so much that’s some high praise indeed! The good news is, there’s 3 other novels, but some spin-off novellas too, check the Forest Lord Reading Order tab at the top of this page to find out more. Thanks again, and I hope you love them all as much as Wolf’s Head!


      1. Well, I’ve ordered every one of them. I cannot wait for them to come! You have made an old lady very, very happy. Thank you, Steven.
