You can't go far without a quick brain and some rule-bending in a place like Locksley. 

4 stars out of 5

" Intensely readable, outrageously enjoyable action"

Set in a contemporary, slightly dystopian version of the Midlands, this high-octane, rip-roaring escapist reimagining from the author of the cult CHERUB series serves up a 12-year-old Robin flush with hacking skills, quick wits and a carbon-fibre recurve bow. When his dad is arrested for a crime he didn’t commit, Robin falls foul of gangster Guy Gisborne and takes refuge with the hippyish denizens of the dangerous Sherwood Forest, robbing Gisborne-controlled cashpoints with the help of Marion Maid while his half-brother Little John finds unexpected common ground with the Sheriff of Nottingham.

"An all-action Robin Hood update enthrals "

Muchamore writes with tremendous energy and his dialogue flies as fast as Robin’s arrows (the boy’s archery skills earn him online followers galore). A new series that strikes the bullseye.
