The Spirit Archer on Six Sentence Sunday - 14th October



Six sentences from The Spirit Archer


Robin Hood comes to the rescue in the present day and a crowd of people are dumbfounded by his arrival.

He is definitely not your ordinary, every-day kind of fellow:


"The crowd parted like the Red Sea for Moses – and onlookers gasped at the very sight of the man. He was athletic and tall, with a shock of lustrous black hair. He appeared about thirty years old.  An aura glowed about him, giving him the incredible presence of the other world.  His steps carried the echo of ages, and he bore the powerful smell of ancient forests – of wood, moss and wild flowers.  A girl swooned as he walked past her, but he saw the movement, and caught her in an instant, lowering her gently to the ground."   



Come and have a look at lots of other lovely book excerpts on the splendid Six Sentence Sunday:

    1. I think Robin has had an gallantry overload, Callie. Just like heroes should, mind you.
