Good spin on an oft-told tale. Fits the historical context nicely. Interesting, if a bit, stereotypical characters because we had seen this story so many times before. The plot moves along briskly enough to sustain interest. ( )

Book description
When a frightened young outlaw joins a gang of violent criminals their names – against a backdrop of death, dishonour, brotherhood, and love – will become legend.

ENGLAND 1321 AD 

After viciously assaulting a corrupt but powerful clergyman Robin Hood flees the only home he has ever known in Wakefield, Yorkshire. Becoming a member of a notorious band of outlaws, Hood and his new companions – including John Little and Will Scaflock – hide out in the great forests of Barnsdale, fighting for their very existence as the law hunts them down like animals. 

When they are betrayed, and their harsh lives become even more unbearable, the band of friends seeks bloody vengeance. 

Meanwhile, the country is in turmoil, as many of the powerful lords strive to undermine King Edward II’s rule until, inevitably, rebellion becomes a reality and the increasingly deadly yeoman outlaw from Wakefield finds his fate bound up with that of a Hospitaller Knight… 

"Wolf’s Head" brings the brutality, injustice and intensity of life in medieval England vividly to life, and marks the beginning of a thrilling new historical fiction series in the style of Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow. 

As of Feb 2014, Wolf's Head is a B.R.A.G. Medallion Honoree!  [retrieved 8/11/2014 from Amazon.com]
