review 1: There is not alot more that i can say about the new outing of the Robin Hood series that i have not said before, Angus Donald has done it again,Iron Castle had me page turning into the early hours of the morning with another cracking adventure of Sir Alan Dale and the Earl of Locksey ,as they take on King Pilip 11 army ,when they must defend the most powerful fortress in Christendom Chateau Gaillard. As with all the other books in the series, this is well reasearched and full of detail, written in a compelling style,that puts you into the heart of the action,as you stand shoulder to shoulder with Alan and Robin in this rip roaring adventure that left me hungry,hungry for more.Same again soon please Agnus.
review 2: If you haven't read any of these Robin Hood no
... morevels - go away and read them.If you have read them - be prepared. You may have thought that Alan went through a hellish ordeal of battle and war in Holy Warrior. You may have thought that Alan and Robin were remarkably lucky to escape and survive in Grail Knight well you will need some calm pills or a fan to cope with the huge amount of high levels of gripping action unlike any other that will increase your stress levels with each life-or-death battle that Alan and Robin must face. Often on a personal and emotional level. And as the title says it does involve a specific castle and as the cover shows it is going to involve and does a battle not just of sword but of stone and arrows and missiles and fire and a weapon that I have never experienced as deeply as in this book - hunger. If you don't appreciate every litte bit of food you get to eat in the present day compared to the fare Alan and Robin and an army survive on - well all I can say is read it again when on an empty stomach.Thankfully it is not just a story full of battles but about loyalty, kingship, comrades in arms and honour in the face of all things.It is another masterfully crafted tale and a fantastic read. Cant wait to see where Robin and Alan go next and whether we will finally encounter the famous beginnings of the Baron's rebellion and the Magna Carter.... less
