  • A taste of what's to come

    Many thanks to NetGalley, Carrie Vaughn, and Macmillan-Tor/Forge for an ARC in exchange for an honest book review of The Ghosts of Sherwood. My thoughts and opinions are 100% my own and independent of receiving an advance copy. Robin is all grown up and married to Marion. They have three children and life is busy. The king is dead and in his place is King John. Although they were enemies, Robin has sworn fealty to him in order to keep his men, the villagers, and anyone else who was loyal to him safe. Peace is precarious at best. Mary, his eldest child, is growing and at an age to be married. She is more like Robin every day, headstrong, brave, and an excellent shot with a bow and arrow. She loves to wander the woods. She is aware of a strange ghost that appears when she wanders the woods but she never feels danger from him, but rather a protective spirit. On one of her journeys into the woods, her younger brother and sister follow her. They are captured by bandits who want to use the children as leverage to get Robin’s allegiance and obedience. The children are in grave danger to be sure. Robin and Marion have no idea where they could be. Does the band of merry men get back together to help find them? Or will Robin be forced to trade his allegiance for his children’s lives? This is a short novella that hopefully will set up a series of adventures for Robin’s children. Robin and Marion are still deeply in love so that was very satisfying. They are now bound by grown-up things and can’t wander the way they used to. The children have forced them to settle down in ways that having children do. Mary was an excellent character and would be able to take the lead in a new story. The youngest child doesn’t speak but proves to have wit, character, and bravery so I would love to know more about her. The least interesting child was John, although I’m not sure if he is just young, didn’t have a chance to develop in this story, or is just uninteresting, although that would be a shame. We get to catch up with a few of the men from the original group. It was just enough of a tease of what they are doing to keep me interested in finding out more. Just because they are older, doesn’t mean they can’t be interesting. I would love for them to be included in future books. Of course, the villains are still around and they have even more power now. Hopefully, there will be more. If not, this is a wonderful glimpse into the life that Robin and Marion have made for themselves. It is a bit of nostalgia and makes me want to go back and read the original “Merry Adventures of Robin Hood” by Howard Pyle. Do you want to read about Robin and Marion as adults with children? Would you read a series of Robin’s children and their adventures? Let me know in the comments.

    Thanks for your feedback!
