As much as Clifton would like to return to normal, two boys being bullied in his school look an awful lot like the two princes he knew in 1485. The Arrows of Light were stolen from his closet for Prince John of Nottingham, indicating that Clifton is meant to help Robin Hood and the people of Sherwood Forest. He’d rather not go, but Dane was alive at the time, and the temptation to warn him of the future is too much to pass up.
Ryan is still a bully, going after Clifton and younger boys, making Clifton feel small and useless. Add in a magical creature stealing the Arrows of Light, and it doesn’t take much more for him to return to the past. This time, he goes back to 1190, where Dane is essentially a teenager and argues with Liv rather than loves her dearly. Hearing the Arrows of Light were stolen automatically leads the two to work with Clifton, despite the dangers, as a Sheriff of Nottingham using the arrows to beat Robin Hood in an archery contest could spell everyone’s doom.
Robin Hood and the Merry Men don’t behave in courtly ways in the story and are prejudiced against the dwarves. There is bad blood between dwarves and humans that started generations before, adding additional difficulties to Clifton’s determination to help Robin Hood. He’s captured, ridiculed, and disbelieved by just about everyone he meets. The meetings with Robin don’t go as planned, and the archery competition is full of threats as well as the heavyweight that everyone’s freedoms depends on Prince John losing.
This is an interesting take on the Robin Hood story and reiterates that friendship and loyalty are the most important riches a person can have.
So with all that in mind, I was pretty excited when I heard that Jaimie Engle was planning to release a sequel. She has talked about it as a possibility for years, so it was really exciting to see it become a reality.
I liked that though the story visits Robin Hood’s time and introduces some familiar characters from that story, the tale stays focused on Clifton. He faces lots of challenges and has to navigate difficult circumstances. One example is that he meets a younger version of Dane, his friend and mentor from CLIFTON CHASE AND THE ARROWS OF LIGHT, and desperately wants to warn him about something that happened to him at the end of the first book.
I think my favorite moment in the story is when Clifton decides to get Dane’s attention by trying to leap on him and pin him down, the way Dane did to him in the first book. It doesn’t quite work out the way Clifton planned, which felt so true to their relationship.
All in all, I thought this was a fun adventure story about courage and friendship.
Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I highly recommend this book in general an if you love the series you'll absolutely love this story. If you havent had a chance to read the first one it's ok. I'd still say get them both they're worth it. Every book she writes I find myself loving I'm not a kid either. So dont over look this one if you're an adult too.
I could go on an on bit long story short 5 starts absolutely recommend.
