Robin: Lady of Legend || R.M Arcejaeger

Summary:  Robin of Locksley is young, headstrong, and about to receive the worst birthday present of her life. Still struggling to define herself in a society that believes women are fit for little more than governing a household and bearing children, she balks at her father’s plans for her future, but the consequences of her rebellion prove deadly. Hunted by both her father and the Sheriff, Robin is forced to hide her identity and seek refuge as an outlaw in Sherwood Forest.

Rating: 3/5

Thoughts: Taking the story of Robin Hood and gender-swapping, this novel was intriguing and fun to read. I enjoyed it, although sometimes felt the language was a little stilted. I loved the characterisation of Robin and the band of merry men. The use of the change of gender was done well and the family connection to money was fascinating. The author seems to be someone who’s fascinated by the same things as me. I love old stories told in a different way and this certainly does that.
