This book had a lot going on, and it’s hard to even know where to start. First of all, the comparisons to Game of Thrones are pretty well spot-on, although I enjoyed Nottingham somewhat better. Dark and funny and absorbing in both language and story. Makaryk has created a whole new world on the page that explores the legend of Robin Hood and asks, what if this had happened instead? It is told through the eyes of noblemen and women, common folk and all those others in between. I delighted in how events and characters are refashioned in this novel, it feels fresh and thoroughly modern and also faithful in its own right to the times and the historical context. The ending is unexpected and great!
