**A neat premise. I have read a few takes on the Robin Hood story over the years, including one where Robin was female, but hadn't previously run across one where Robin Hood was made up by the Sheriff to cover his own misdoings.
**Attention to detail. The historical setting felt very real, from the physical setting to the way the culture and politics worked at the time.
**Good mix of action and humor within the overall story. I'm not sure if the author intended this, but I kept having a vision of the book as a movie and picturing it as having action scenes interspersed with almost slapstick comedy as the sheriff keeps digging himself deeper as he is trying to extricate himself from the situation.
**I was at college with the author. Okay, I guess that may not be a reason for you to read the book, but it is so cool to find that someone you actually know is now a writer.
The only thing that gave me pause was something that is probably due to my unique way of looking at things, and that was the pace of the writing. I could have used a lot more complex sentences, or at least longer ones. You know how they teach you in school that a period makes you stop? Well, I felt like I was being stopped when I wanted to keep going. If I had been editing this book, I probably would have replaced half of the periods with commas or semicolons or some other punctuation that doesn't make you keep starting and stopping all the time.
I know, that is probably a really strange thing to notice. But that's just the way I am - I react to patterns and details that most people don't seem to pay attention to, and they can become very distracting without a concerted effort to stop focusing on them.
All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys historical fantasy and retellings of classic stories. It's a good addition to the Robin Hood legacy.
It was written well, containing some really nice lines of description. One I especially liked was how Tuck's hairstyle was described as a large egg nested in a mop of brown hair. That was a great visual!
A few things I didn't like were how everyone seemed to figure out things so easily, except for Guy. Was it that obvious? Or was Guy just stupid? Also it was quite awful, when you stop to think about it, what Robert condoned later on to keep up the ruse up. All those poor innocent soldiers caught in the crossfires.
Regardless, for lovers of Robin Hood, this is something new and different to add to your collections.
I received a free copy from the author for a review.
