In Robin Hood: Hacking, Heists & Flaming Arrows, the bestselling author of the Cherub series brings to life the eponymous folk legend in the modern day industrial ghost town of Locksley. Struggling under the gruelling grip of a profit-seeking Sheriff and his underworld allies, young Robin and his brother launch a mission to save their town. But first they must escape into the forest, and Robin must put his inimitable tech skills to good use. Thrilling and imaginative, Robin Hood is Muchamore at his finest.
A town. A forest. A hero.
You can't go far without a quick brain and some rule-bending in a place like Locksley. After its vast car plants shut down, the prosperous town has become a wasteland of empty homes, toxic land and families on the brink. And it doesn't help that the authorities are in the clutches of profit-obsessed Sheriff of Nottingham, in cahoots with underworld boss Guy Gisborne. When his dad is framed for a robbery, Robin and his brother Little John are hounded out of Locksley and must learn to survive in the Sherwood forest, stretching three hundred kilometres and sheltering the free spirits and outlaws. But Robin is determined to do more than survive. Small, fast and deadly with a bow, he hatches a plan to join forces with Marion Maid, harness his inimitable tech skills and strike a blow against Gisborne and the Sheriff.
