Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance.
Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in. It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.
I wasn't all that excited for this until a little while ago, when I realised it was a retelling of Robin Hood. Then I was all psyched about it. Also, I've been seeing it on people's lists for 2012 a lot lately and I ave to say I agree. It does look like it's going to be awesome! I love the cover :)

I have loved Robin Hood since watching the Disney version with Foxes. I am definitely excited for this adaptation. It will be fun to read the story from a girl's POV. Awesome pick.ReplyDelete
