From Library Journal
Returning to the 13th century during the treacherous reign of King John, Canham completes her "Robin Hood" trilogy (e.g., In the Shadow of Midnight, Dell 1994) with the tale of Robin Wardieu d'Amboise's sister, the fiery archer Brenna, and mysterious mercenary Griffyn Renaud de Verdelay. The action sweeps from Normandy to Sherwood as they fight to protect the legitimate heir to the English throne and end up discovering a surprising secret that changes the direction of England forever. Although the penchant of the villains for sadistic sexual torture may offend some and the beautifully done historical detail and description occasionally slows the pace of the story, fans of both the Robin Hood legend and of medieval tales of derring-do will like this one. Canham lives near Toronto, Canada.

"Rousing action, a strong sense of medieval life, a satisfying love story, and intriguing spins on historical events as well as the familiar Robin Hood characters that should bring readers back for more." --Publishers Weekly
