it was amazing

This is not your traditional Robin Hood tale. Rather this fairy-tale flavored fantasy adds in layers of magic, mythology and multiple universes to the usual Merry Men mischief and adventure. Sweet, soulful Allyn-a-Dale, our young minstrel hero, guides us through the tale as though it were a ballad of old. The story is structured into stanzas rather than chapters, and there's a lyrical quality to the prose. It is fun, humorous, and at times surprisingly tender. Thoroughly delightful.

My fondest wish is to one day be able to visit the world of Avalon Faire, the seemingly ordinary renaissance fair where through the powerful magic of mighty Merlin all the heroes from myth and legend still live on. I can hardly wait for the next volume in the series.
