From goodreads:

Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance.

Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in. It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.

  1. Ooo… Nice pick! I’ve seen this one around, and I keep thinking that I should check it out. I do love the original stories, but have been a bit underwhelmed by re-tellings I’ve read.

    If you’d like, you can check out my WoW post here.

  2. I have been a Robin Hood fan ever since I first learned to read. I’ve read tons of fictional adaptations and historical theories, and can’t get enough of the myth and the man. So this book looks right up my alley! I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for your review!
