Synopsis

Robin of Lockesly was neither the son her father wanted, nor the daughter her mother expected. When she refuses an arranged marriage to a harsh and cruel knight, the deadly events that follow change her destiny forever.

After a night of tragedy, Robin and the few remaining survivors flee to Nottingham. With a newfound anonymity, they start to live different lives. There, she and her band make mischief, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. But charity isn’t the only thing she wants—she wants revenge.

As the sheriff draws his net closer, Robin’s choices begin to haunt her. She’ll have to choose between what’s lawful and what her conscience believes is right—all while staying one step ahead of the hangman.

***Amber – #NerdGirlAmbz’s  Review***
I was super excited to read this book. A re-telling of the famous Robin Hood tale with a female lead! I mean seriously who would not love that?

I enjoyed the way the author kept enough of the classic tale entwined into this book. More than enough to satisfy any classic by the book story lover. You know the type. The ones who constantly critique stating, “That’s not how it goes.”

The gender swap was executed perfectly. Just the right mix of feminism and political standing. This re-telling was beautifully written and executed superbly! You have my vote! 5 stars!! LOVED IT!
