At first I wasn't sure I would like this novel and I was right. I absolutely loved it! Most Robin Hood stories don't really focus on a woman as being a member of the band. Scarlet brings a fresh new perspective and imagination to the Robin Hood tale. Scarlet is a brave heroine who fights just as hard as the men if not harder in Robin Hood's band. I really love the mystery behind Scarlet's true origins and how they're revealed as the book goes on. There is also a really great twist to Scarlet's identity that I really liked and appreciated. There is a lot of action in this novel and a bit of a love triangle as well. All in all this makes for a great book to read. I definitely recommend this if you like adventure, Robin Hood, and a strong female heroine.
