Review byTrishaAnn92

Robyn Hood: Outlaw Princess by John Reynolds is a fresh take on the classic Robin Hood but with afun twist. This is a quick, entertaining young adult novel that everyone issure to enjoy. Personally, I found it to be one that I could not put down.
 
Robyn is a seventeen years old girl living an ordinaryboring life. She thinks things can't sink any lower until a terrible stormstrikes and she finds herself transported to another time. In this new place,Robyn discovers that she is Robyn Hood, a female outlaw leading a band ofoutlaw women. With each passing day Robyn is there she receives memories fromdifferent parts of her life. Her childhood, how she became an outlaw, etc. Uponraiding a large caravan moving through Sherwood Forest, Robyn discovers she hasa long-lost sister.
 
Only one person in the band of women knows that RobynHood isn't really Robyn Hood. From the time Robyn is there to the time she getstransported home, Willow, a seer of sorts, gives her guidance and friendship.Through all this, the common theme in the book is friendship and loyalty. Howhaving friends that have your back no matter what can affect the outcome of asituation in a positive way.
 
Despite the story being a novella, I thought it waswell rounded. I wasn't left asking questions at the end. Which tends to be thebiggest problem for me when it comes to these types of books. The maincharacters in the book were fleshed out enough to come to life, particularly Robyn,as she is the sole main character. She was the easiest to imagine and was acharacter easiest to like for the temperament the author creates. Overall, thiswas a book I couldn't put down once I started reading. The novella appeared tobe professionally edited.
 
Robyn Hood: Outlaw Princess by John Reynolds ishappily awarded a 4 out of 4 stars. This Young Adult novella puts afresh twist on the classic, intertwines a little romance and even a littlemystery. If you have the time to check out this novel, I suggest you do. Out ofall the redone classics I have delved into this is one of the freshest I havecome across. Unique to being a Young Adult Novella it lacks the big romancetheme similar to others I have read. I would definitely check out more of thisauthor's work.

Review by Tasana Williams
Are you a fan of swashbuckling adventures? Do you getlost in medieval tales of sword fighting, horseback riding and good versusevil? Do you secretly wish a scabbard was a part of your everyday attire? Thenyou are going to like Robyn Hood Outlaw Princess by John Reynolds. Itadds a feminine twist to Howard Pyle's 1883 classic Robin Hood of GreatRenown in Nottinghamshire.

The protagonist Robyn Howard is a senior at Eastlake College, and she hasfamily roots in Nottingham. She is a good student and her school's soccer teamcaptain, but she can't help but notice that she gets treated differently thanher male counterparts do. Mr. Smallfield, the school principal, seems to haveher in his crosshairs. He constantly chastises Robyn for behaviors that she issure would go unpunished were she a boy instead of a girl. While Robynruminates over gender inequality one afternoon, she is whisked away fromEastlake College to Sherwood Forest. No longer is she Robyn Howard. She hasbecome Robyn of the Hood.

Robyn Hood Outlaw Princess is an entertaining work of YA fantasyfiction. It is a great story idea. Most other twists on the Robin Hoodadventure novel have male characters in the lead, or female charactersdisguised as males. Mr. Reynolds adds to the mix by having a consistentlyfemale protagonist who is supported by a band of merry women instead of men. Ilike that Mr. Reynolds includes elements that provoke the reader to questionhow males and females are treated differently in society, even when they do thesame things. This is an appropriate angle for a young adult novel, as manymembers of the target audience may be mulling over the same issues.

Robyn's adventure in Sherwood Forest is reminiscent of Frank L. Baum's TheWonderful Wizard of Oz, in that people from her school life makeappearances in her outlaw experience. Without including spoilers, both Mr.Smallfield and Robyn's friend William have roles in Nottinghamshire. You willhave to read the book to find out how they come into play!

Although this is young adult fiction, I recommend it for readers of all ages.People who like reading about magic and medieval times will especially likethis book. I rate Robyn Hood Outlaw Princess 4 out of 4 stars. Itis an entertaining read, well written, appropriate for its target audience, andit appears to be professionally edited. One thing I would change about thisnovel is the length. It seems cut short. I would have liked to read more ofRobyn's adventures as an outlaw. That being said, this book would be theperfect opening for a series of books with Robyn in the lead.

From the Author

Some years ago I co-wrote a musical by the same name with Auckland composer Gary Daverne. It has been successfully staged by schools and theatre groups in NZ, Australia, UK, Canada and the USA. Consequently I decided to adapt it to a novel.

Musicals consist of melodies and lyrics which are important in conveying the feelings of the characters and advancing the storyline, supported by scenes and dialogue that is acted. I quickly realised that to tell the tale in the form of a novel I would need to write descriptive passages, additional dialogue and more characters to develop the story and engage the reader. I added more action scenes and also decided to include a touch or two of romance. 
The novel has had some very promising reviews from a wide variety of readers, which is very encouraging.
