Steven A. McKay is back and he’s revisiting some of our favourite characters from his Forest Lord Series.

Friar Tuck has been pulled into a couple of mysteries over the years along with Little John but in Sworn to God we see the lovely addition of Will “Scarlet” Scaflock.

It’s been a few years since the notorious group of men lead by Robin Hood gained their freedom and lives back. Little John has settled into the life of a bailiff, his stature and presence make it very unlikely he’s going to walk

Despite what Goodreads once again insists, I have NOT read the Kindle edition since I only do REAL books! Anyway......

It seems that every December, Steven McKay gifts his faithful following with a new novella, usually running around 125 pages. This year he outdid himself with what can only be called a full-length novel (hey, it's longer than George Orwell's "Animal Farm" and it's considered a novel, alright?), the page-turning "Sworn To God."

Without giving away the plot, our old friends from Ro

So loved being back on another case with Little John and Tuck with the added help of Will Scarlett this time, even I didn’t see the twist coming near the end which I’m usually very good at, thank you for another great read Steven, I look forward to more, throughly recommended 😀

Enjoyable, although the Black Lords could have used adding to to make it convincing. At the time people were superstitious but I find it difficult to believe people would fall for something like this without some basis for that belief aside from someones word.

Steven McKay does it again!

Every time I read one of his books I can never guess the ending! He keeps the reader hooked right to the end. A thoroughly enjoyable book, keep them coming!

Robin who!

The three medieval detectives made good reading, enjoyed the tale and the outcome, looking forward to more if they come. Many thanks.

Welcome back Will! Great to read a book based on real historical events but involving our "crime busting" duo, now a trio and taking place in the UK. I'm not going to give anything away, but as always, they cracked the case and Will was instrumental to solving the suicides in a strange religious sect. A novella that was longer than most, so hoping for an even longer one next Christmas. As always thank you and fabulously written Steven. ...more
