From the outset this story feels different from the other Robin Hood tales we've heard. Usually those take place after the crusades. This book seems to place you right in the centre of all the action from the first few sentences.
The characters are familiar but I'm intrigued as to how the story will unfold further. In particular the actions of Maid Marion speak to a woman vastly more empowered than in her earlier renditions.
Fast paced and action packed, I think I'd enjoy reading more of this story. The cover doesn't appeal much to me as it seems a bit dated with the fonts used. However do like the colour and elements of the artwork.
