Woah, what can I say about this book?

This was one of the most enjoyable reads I've had, in more ways than one.

I've always had a soft spot for the Robin Hood story and I've always lusted after Richard Armitige (The Sherriff in The BBC version of Robin Hood), so the fact that the author states that he is her insperation made me want to read it more.

And boy did I love it. Without spoiling it, this was Robin Hood "The Tudors style" Yes there are a few inacuracies with regards to a few minor things, but who cares. This was a smoking hot read with a really intresting and unique twist on the tale.

It poses some very good questions and one scene in particular had me questioning the Sherriffs actions. Another reviewer (I can't remember where it was posted) had commented how the Sherriffs character seemed to change and carry out a one eighty. I could see the whys and how there is a build up to this shift.

There are two scenes in this book that are really out of my usual comfort zone, but I couldn't help but reach for a fan afterwards. Both involved Marian and another woman. I am not really into this, but there was something about the way the author wrote them that didn't make them scene over gratoutious or there for shock value. I never felt uncomforable and admit to skipping back to reread one again. (That to me means its well written)

I am now torturing myself over ordering Master, which appears to have higher marks than this one. We will see!!!!!
