Publisher's Summary

As the gates of Ravenskeep swing open and a young woman flees into the primeval depths of Sherwood Forest and into the arms of the man she loves, a saga of exceptional power and remarkable passion begins...
He is Sir Robery Locksley - the heroic nobleman who has turned his back on all he knows to embark on a dangerous quest for justice in an England torn apart by treachery, betrayal, and war.
She is Lady Marian of Ravenskeep - the proud, defiant knight's daughter who leaves her sheltered life behind to join a shadowy band of outlaws who follow no law but their own.
Robin Hood and Maid Marian - their love has belonged to legend for centuries, and now it belongs to us all, stunningly brought to life by the masterful pen of a truly gifted storyteller. Against a medieval tapestry of color and pageantry, Jennifer Roberson has woven a rich, sweeping tale of a woman whose courage and passion could forever alter the destiny of that mist-shrouded land of lore we know in our hearts and see in our dreams.

Any additional comments?

This book really captures the time in which Robin Hood lived. It sticks to the legend while adding in original plot lines too. It's made to appeal to a modern audience more by fleshing Marian out as a character. There were a couple of faults I found with the writer's style. The Author's over usage of adverbs and certain phrases she loved to repeat. Perhaps the ordeinary reader may not notice but as an Author forced to be on the lookout for just those things when editing my own work, I noticed it. Also, the style is very quaint and old fashioned. It suits the story but could be a bit long-winded at times. I thought all the characters were interesting, none of them completely black or white, and I ended up sympothising with most of them at one point or another throughout the book, but in some cases, that sympathy didn't last. I look forward to reading the sequel.
