  • Robin and his band of Merry Man

    Rebel Reviews When Robin Lockley dies in Jerusalem, Marian is devastated not only has she lost her best friend and love but the Sheriff's right hand man Sir Guy and Robin's enemy is being given Robin's land and wants to take Robin's place in her heart. Lockley needs a hero to save them from the Sheriff and his men and if Robin isn't there to do it Marian will become him and save them herself. When I picked up Sherwood I thought I was getting a much different story then I got. First off I thought this was a Robin Hood retelling with Robin born a girl and not Marian taking on his identity. After I got over the shock I really loved this book but not as much as Hunted the author's beauty and the beast retelling. I have always loved the story of Robin Hood a man who rebels against the system because it is wrong and takes from the people who refuse to fix it and gives to the people it hurts the most. That is my kind of person. I did feel this book moved slow which is weird because it had a great deal of action and suspense. Marian's grief over Robin's death was written very real and raw and I really felt for her character. Marian's love for the people of Lockley and the downtrodden is inspiring. As always Meagan's writing draws you into the story doesn't let you go. I love how Marian is a huge tomboy and not at all graceful in this book. It made me connect with her even more. I loved that one of the reasons Marian pretended to be Robin was so the people would have hope when they needed it most. I really loved the romance but then it is my favorite romance trope(though I wish there was more of it). I wouldn't say more as not to spoil it. I also loved Marian's band of merry men(one of the men was not happy with that name and I burst out laughing like a loon at his disappointment)but wish she got to spend more time with them in the book. This book had an important message about knowing yourself and what you stand for. Overall this was an amazing Robin Hood retelling and I highly recommend it to everyone who loves strong female characters, rebels, and standing up for the little guy Rating: 4.5 stars

  • Lots of surprises!

    4.5 stars — Wow, that took me through all of the emotions. I had all these desires for the first half of the book, and then things started shifting and I started shifting with it…and feeling conflicted. And so confused. Needless to say because of all that, this is going to be a vague and confusing review, b/c I just don’t want to spoil anything. Ms. Spooner gave me a really rich story with a lot of shades of gray. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about that, but I really enjoyed it in the end. It wasn’t just the “bad” side either, it was Marian and her motivations and what she learns and the decisions she makes. Just wow. I loved that there were a lot of different sides, and a lot of different reactions, and that it wasn’t always simple black and white/good and evil. Marian was ridiculously spirited, and I couldn’t help but love her. I could feel the way she chafed against society’s expectations for women in her time. I loved that she was so bold. BUT. It could be a bit of a downfall at times, b/c she was very good at convincing herself to keep her blinders on wrt certain people or motivations or situations. She was so stubborn. Allen, Little John, Will Scarlett, Elena, Much — great characters. Loved the way they added colour to the story, and she had different relationships with some of them. They all gave different perspectives. The narrator was pretty solid. I enjoyed listening to her voice, though I will admit that sometimes her voices didn’t always feel super consistent…maybe some were too similar? Great emotion and pacing though. My only other meh is that in the end her choice of voice for one particular character kind of worked against that character, and in hindsight I wish they sounded differently. So yeah…this one surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. Some parts were totally not what I was expecting, but I was won over completely by the end.

    Thanks for your feedback!
