Lady of Sherwood is a unique young adult retelling of the beloved Robin Hood legend. Filled with action and romance, this new series follows a teenage heroine through her fantastic, yet dangerous adventures.
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.
Excellent Re-Imagining of a Classic Story
I was never heavily into Robin Hood when I was younger, but I absolutely love this re-telling of a classic story. I love the gender swapping of the characters, and it didn't matter that I couldn't recall the characters from the beginning. In fact, I think that it worked in my favor and allows the reader to come to love these characters on their own. If you enjoy girl gang shenanigans and girls supporting girls, this is the book for you. I loved the fact that consent was brought up multiple times, and we saw loving friendships and relationships. Great book, can't wait to read it again!
