No king. No rules.
England, 1191. King Richard is half a world away, fighting for God and his own ambition. Back home, his country languishes, bankrupt and on the verge of anarchy. People with power are running unchecked. People without are growing angry. And in Nottingham, one of the largest shires in England, the sheriff seems intent on doing nothing about it.
As the leaves turn gold in the Sherwood Forest, the lives of six people--Arable, a servant girl with a secret, Robin and William, soldiers running from their pasts, Marion, a noblewoman working for change, Guy of Gisbourne, Nottingham's beleaguered guard captain, and Elena Gamwell, a brash, ambitious thief--become intertwined.
And a strange story begins to spread . . .
We all know the main characters from this story, Robin Hood, Maid Marion, Friar Tuck, etc. But, this book delves into so many other characters, and develops them fully. His writing is such a pleasure to read, and so visual, making the reader feel like they are right there with the characters. 5 STARS!!
A fellow bookstagrammer told me that the author had told her to “be careful, those last 10 pages are a doozie!” Wow! Was he right!
