Sherwood by Megan Spooner


It is expected to be released on March 19, 2019, by HarperTeen.

Hello! I am excited about this! I don’t think I ever read a retelling of Robin Hood! I think you can tell how excited I am, haha. I have been seeing the Beauty & the Beast, Little Mermaid, etc but Robin Hood? Bring It On. I have been hearing a lot of wonderful things about her other book, Hunted

I am in love with this cover. I thought Hunted was beautiful, but I honestly like Sherwood better. I think it’s because of the mountains in the background. I love how the title has an arrow over the two O. Can’t wait to see this in person. I wonder if it’ll have that stain like feel texture to it. 

Robin of Locksley is dead. 

When news comes that he’s fallen in battle at the King’s side in the Holy Land, Maid Marian doesn’t know how she’ll go on. Betrothed to Robin, she was free to be herself, to flout the stifling rules of traditional society and share an equal voice with her beloved when it came to caring for the people of her land.

Now Marian is alone, with no voice of her own. The people of Locksley, persecuted by the Sheriff of Nottingham, are doomed to live in poverty or else face death by hanging. The dreadful Guy of Gisborne, the Sherriff’s right hand, wishes to step into Robin’s shoes as Lord of Locksley, and Marian’s fiancé. Society demands that she accept her fate, and watch helplessly as her people starve.

When Marian dons Robin’s green cloak, and takes up his sword and bow, she never intended that anyone should mistake her for Robin, returned from the Holy Land as a vigilante. She never intended that the masked, cloaked figure she created should stand as a beacon of hope and justice to peasant and noble alike. She never intended to become a legend.

But all of Nottingham is crying out for a savior. So Marian must choose to make her own fate and become her own hero…

Robin Hood.
