I've heard it's *pretty* good. You should read it yourself and find out.

[9/29/2019] - I hope this isn't the final cover. It works as a placeholder but not as a real cover

we're not even halfway through 2019 and I already can't wait for 2020

Did everybody else know that Robin Hood was real? And if so, THEN HOW COME NO ONE TOLD ME???

Now that I am aware of said fact, the Robin Hood I think of will not be the gritty, dour Russel Crowe version, but the eponymous character from Elder Moke's HOOD. It isn't a retread origin story however, at least not in the classic sense. HOOD follows Isabelle, a young woman who quickly learns that she is the daughter of the infamous outlaw (who again, was real!)

I don't think I've read historical fiction

GAH I AM A SUCKER FOR A RETELLING/REINVENTION WITH A NEW POINT OF VIEW, AND HOOD DELIVERS.
Okay, so this is the story of Isabelle. Imprisoned for shooting a soldier, she is rescued by her mother Marien, who tells her she must flee the priory and seek refuge with Thomas, a three-day journey away. An adventure begins. When she finds the Merry Men, she falls for a boy with brown curls, reconnects with her father, and learns how to be braver than she feels.
The writing in this book is so lush and

HOOD is what I like to call a legit Portal Book. It opens into its own, ancient oak-lined pathway, inviting you to step into its world, drink its mead, and banter with its characters as you follow an irresistible story.

Isabelle, daughter of prioress Marien, finally discovers the identity of her father. He’s Robin Hood— a man whose existence she wasn’t even sure about until then. And now she must deliver to him the most urgent of messages. Robin Hood, unsurprisingly, is a difficult man to find,

I mean this sounds cool but that's a very basic/half finished cover. I hope that's not the final one. Pretty underwhelming from Disney.

HOOD by Jenny Elder Moke is a fast-paced, action packed adventure. With a memorable cast of characters, both old and new, Elder Moke has created a unique yet familiar story that centers around Isabelle, the daughter of Robin Hood himself. What I loved about this historical fiction novel is that it took the classic tale of Robin Hood and wove it into a reimagined feminist tale. Isabelle is a relatable character who comes into her own but not without some doubts and struggles. Isabelle is thrown ...more

This sounds like a promising retelling, so fingers crossed

When it says 'handsome young outlaws' does anyone else kind of picture Legolas?

I had the privilege of reading this delightful book early, and I am SO glad I didn’t have to wait! HOOD is straight up my street — an incredibly fun historical that gives an immersive world without getting bogged down in details, complete with mystery, costumed heists, and a feisty heroine who has daddy issues and a smoldering love interest. Also, archery contests! Because what’s the point of a Robin Hood retelling without some of those, right? If Robin Hood was one of your childhood favorites, ...more

*Spoiler free*

I've discovered that I will jump on any Robin Hood retellings. Especially because most of the ones I come across feature a female main character, and I think that is one the best things ever. When I first found out about this book, I knew it would be about Robin Hood's daughter, and that was basically all I needed to know that I wanted to read it.

I really, really hate to say that this book really wasn't for me. I came close to DNFing it a lot of times, but by the time I wanted to

This was an excellent YA book. Great stand alone or possible continuation. Standard YA formulations but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Plenty of action, "where do I fit in" angst, and new love. Love the cover. I know someone mentioned it only works as a placeholder but the cover is why I initially picked it up out of our bookstore's ARC options. Would be a good middle school read.
