The Scarlet Forest: A Tale of Robin Hood (2nd ed.) Kindle Edition
"In this retelling of the tale of Robin Hood, Amy Chandler subtly weaves together the recognizable aspects of the legend with real historical detail regarding such themes as social inequality, anticlericalism, and the nature of law and criminal justice in the Middle Ages." - Dr. Mark Konnert, University of Calgary's Head of the Department of History
"A. E. Chandler also wrote her graduate dissertation about Robin Hood, so don't miss her historical notes at the end. . . . [I]t felt like I was being told a story while sitting under the stars by the fire. . . . I fell in love with Robin Hood . . . . This is a wonderful read." - Janice Ottersberg, Historical Novel Society

The truth is, I don’t remember much from the story except “Rob from the rich and give to the poor” and that Robin Hood and his crew lived in Sherwood forest. I was thinly educated so I was interested in expanding my knowledge and I appreciate the author for sending me an e-galley to read.
Robin Hood, his right hand man Little John (who isn’t so little), and Marian’s adventures with their band of outcasts are detailed with a keen eye for the customs of the era. They duel with swords and wits to survive and level the playing field between greedy landlords and the nefarious Sheriff of Nottingham.
I was reminded of how brutal people were not so long ago. Those condemned to die for their crimes often suffered slow torturous deaths by design. Amusement came in the form of abusing others and causing pain. I sometimes shy away from reading accounts of these types of events but history isn’t often pretty.
I really enjoyed this beyond just the story. The research is evident regarding customs and language and I especially liked the dialog with mid century English colloquialisms and idioms.There is additional information at the back of the book not included in the prose which I found interesting.
Overall, there is a sense of goodwill and I loved learning more about Robin Hood’s life.
Thank you to the author A.E. Chandler for the opportunity to read this!
The Sheriff plans on luring Robin Hood into the archery competition.
It seems Robin Hood & Marian Fitzwalter (aka Anne, Robert’s BFF, Baron Fitzwalter’s eldest daughter) were in love.
The 10 best archers were announced.
Percival (fewterer), the 3 three greyhounds, Baron Fitzwalter, Robert, & Will Stutely were set to go deer hunting.
Friar Tuck had wed Allan & Edith.
Countess Agatha (Huntington, Earl David of Huntington mother, Lady Margaret of Gamewell, Robin Hood’s mother) had passed away.
Baron Fitzwalter had died & his estate was divided into 4 lots, except for Anne, who had been disowned.
What will Robin Hood (outlaw), Little John, & the Merry Men’s next quest be?
I do not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing free books from publishers & authors. Therefore, I am under no obligation to write a positive review, only an honest one.
An awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very professionally written Historical Fiction book. It was quite easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a huge description list of unique characters, settings, facts etc. to keep track of. This could also make another great Robin Hood movie, an animated cartoon, or better yet a mini-TV series. It was as exciting as I hoped, I liked it, but I will only rate it at 4/5 stars.
