But all who breathe know the penalty for such theft is hanging. As the Sheriff's army pursues them, Robin Hood and Marian face danger at every turn. . .and discover a shared passion that will join their hearts forever.

"Roberson's genre-blending novel may be her best yet." (Publishers Weekly )
"Fans of historical fiction and period fantasy should enjoy this rousing story." (Booklist"
It's one of the better books I've listened to recently.
I would compare it to its predecessor, Lady of The Forest. It had the same good and bad points.
He read the first book, but I actually thought this performance was even better.
It made me laugh on occasion.
As with Lady of the Forest, this had great characters and the intrigue was done really well. It was from fewer perspectives which I preferred. However, also as with Lady of the Forest, the style was very wordy and at times it felt like the Author was taking forever to tell me something. Also, the ending felt incomplete. I was left with questions and as there's no third book, I'm left feeling a little frustrated. That said, this book was my favourite of the two.
