No one has ever bested Geoffrey, the Sheriff of Nottingham – until the day a new villain appears in the forest. Cunning, treacherous, and, against all expectations, a man to respect, his name is Robin Hood. Their deadly game of cat and mouse begins – and the Sheriff's life will never be the same. Acclaimed young adult author Michael Cadnum's subtle, evocative prose is sure to leave readers spellbound.
"A stunning tour de force, beautifully written, in which Michael Cadnum turns the legend of Robin Hood inside out... In a Dark Wood may well become that rare thing – an enduring piece of literature." – Robert Cormier, author of The Chocolate War
