4.0 out of 5 stars A Medieval, Swashbuckling Romance-Filled Adventure! December 29, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Filled with swashbuckling adventure, sweeping pageantry and the story of a passionate romance, Marsha Canham outdoes herself with this superb historical novel. Set against the dark forests and royal court of King John "Lackland's" England, Ms. Canham brings to life a unique version of the Robin Hood tale with this story of political intrigue, hatred, revenge and fated love.
Recently widowed, 18 year-old Lady Servanne de Briscourt has been bartered into her second marriage. Though she is beautiful and intelligent, her husband-to-be, King John's champion Lord Lucien Wardieu, Baron de Gournay of Bloodmore Keep, is more interested in the lands she will bring to her marriage than in the bride herself. In the large, dense forest known as Lincolnwoods, Lady Servanne and her armed escorts are ambushed on their journey to the up-coming nuptials by a band of outlaws armed with longbows. The outlaw leader, known as the Black Wolf, claims his name is Lucien Wardieu, the true Baron de Gournay - and that Lady Servanne is his hostage. The escorts are sent on their way, minus their weapons, to inform the pretender at Bloodmore Keep that his bride is being held captive.
This is one wild adventure! Family sins and throne-rocking secrets are exposed, royal power is unleashed, some pretty unsavory, depraved characters murder and threaten, love and passion sizzle, armored knights ride to battle and are thwarted by a band of merry and determined men and one woman. This novel has it all - from cliff-hanging escapades to steamy sensuality. The action doesn't stop until the last sentence on the last page. As usual Ms. Canham writes with elegance and flair. Her extraordinary characters just about leap off the page. This wonderful book is definitely a keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book came highly recommended to me... June 1, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
And I highly recommend it to you!
Like the ever seemingly present "dark mist" throughout the book, the sexual tension and thrill of the mystery permeates throughtout the entire book. I was absorbed from the prologue of the book when we first find Lady Servanne de Briscourt jailed in a cold dank cell then rescued by "Lucien". Although the prologue ends bleakly, the excitement begins and the reader slowly finds out the family secrets and betrayals of the Wardieu family. Lady Servanne is captured by The Black Wolf of Lincolnwoods on her way to her marriage to Baron de Gournay. Although she is kidnapped for the purpose of ransom, it is more than mere money that drives the heart of the The Black Wolf... Along the way of his plans for revenge, his heart is captured by the innocent lure of Lady Servanne. Thus begins the "heaven and the hell" of The Wolf and Servanne. A story you will find totally engrossing and satisfying. You will not find one part of this book boring or slow, because there is a surprise at every twist and turn that puts thoroughly interesting spin on this tale of betrayal, revenge and love. (I could not help myself but peak ahead to see what was going to happen!)
Through A Dark Mist has the most spectacular climatic ending ever! As a matter of fact, it is the most action packed romance novel I've ever read! It's like Mission Impossible 2 meets Robyn Hood! And, TADM also has the most interesting and scene stealing secondary characters ever! Gil Golden with the grotesque scar in the shape of an N, Sparrow, the trip hopping dwarf and Alaric... the bishop, who really isn't.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT Robin Hood November 2, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This series is billed as "The Robin Hood Trilogy" but if you are looking for a solid read about Robin, Marian, Tuck, Little John and the rest this is NOT the series for you. Instead these three books are really romances that follow the usual "boy meets girl, girl is the feisty, defiant type who fights to prove her independance, girl and boy insult each other and pretend to hate one another, sexual tension rises to the point of no return, boy and girl finally succumb, fall in love and live happily ever after" formula. The women in each of these three books are eerily similiar, the three men they hate/fall in love with are cut from the same mold and there is a definite pattern that each book follows. From the very beginning I kept turning the page waiting for Robin Hood to appear to no avail. (((**From here on there are spoilers!! SPOILER ALERT!** By the end of the third book there was still no real Robin Hood, no real Merry Men. The trilogy actually only skirts the very edges of the Hood legend with a nod to some of the characters but each in very different, unfamiliar roles. Marienne (formerly Maid Marian) is a young girl attending Princess Eleanor who has been blinded by Prince John, falls in love with a Robin (not THAT Robin), but stays with her Lady in a convent for many years. Friar Tuck is called The King of Sherwood but is also not Robin Hood. He's not even really a Friar, only called "Tuck" because of all the weapons he has tucked away on his person. Littlejohn is a mercenary soldier who ends up captian of the guard for the Hero from the first book. Alan of the Dale leads a group of foresters, but not very well and is happy to hand over that leadership rather quickly. Will (Scarlet) has become a blushing Knight. Read more ›
