10/8/2015 Addendum:
I just got an email that someone liked this review and it took me a moment to even remember that I had read it. Usually I don't have a problem remember a book I've read, even years later. With this one, however, I cannot even remember anything about the plot. Could be relevant...

Original review:

I'm not any sadder for reading this book, but I'm certainly not any more enriched or anything. His historical spin on the Robin Hood legend is well-conceived but poorly executed. It's got plenty of action and the dialogue isn't awful, but there was just something missing for me. I didn't care about the protagonist and I didn't love or hate anyone else in the story. It was just one of those books that I had no problem finishing, but when I was done just sort of shrugged, scratched my nose and took it back to the library. Didn't really make a mark at all. Fairly predictable plot lines, characters that aren't awful but that don't really evoke any kind of emotional response either way. If you really really really like Robin Hood then it's probably something you'll enjoy at least a little bit, but beyond that I have nothing to say.
