    Tod of the Fens PDF/EPUB Ý Tod of Epub / fens kindle, Tod of book, Tod of the Fens PDFI'm giving this disjointed novel 25 275 stars rounding up to 3 stars The author was clearly trying for a multiple POV multiple plotline story that centered on Tod the character from the book's title the operative word being trying Also Tod is not the center of the tale although he stands near it The theme that theoretically ties everything together is trickery Tod and his merry men they're not Robin Hood but close make a not quite legal living in the fens near Boston England For fun they play endless pranks At some point they encounter Henry Prince of Wales and future king Henry V who it seems also enjoys playing pranks this is really the tale's center and who goes incognito as Dismas to trick the people ruling Boston via an elaborate theft of keys to the town coffer The evening town gate guard has some opportunity to catch things out as he spots Dismas multiple times in multiple gui
