Steinarr has been cursed by the Cwen, a sorceress who condemns him to live out his life as two separate beings.  During the day he is a warrior hunter whose only mean of support is to make a living capturing others for money.  At night, however, Steinarr becomes a lion, yes, the king of the jungle kind of lion, and roams the forests of Nottingham living out a lonely existence.  When he comes upon a young man and woman needing his help, Steinarr hesitates because he doesnít trust easily, but when the beautiful woman, Marion, gazes at him, his heart flutters for the first time in years.  Steinarr is spellbound.   

The likeness of Immortal Outlaw to the legend of Robin Hood and his band of merry men is more than apparent.  However, Ms. Hendrix has taken the legend a step further and added comedic elements as well as steamy love scenes between Steinarr and the fair maid Marion.  Steinarrís greatest fear is hurting Marion when he is a lion, but she soon proves that her love is strong enough for anything.  Add in the Sheriff of Nottingham as well as the original sorceress Cwen who desires Steinarrís death and you have a fairy tale of a story in its own right.   

I canít wait to see what is in store for readers with the next novel by Lisa Hendrix.  Immortal Outlaw is definitely a keeper and one I will read again and again.
