Readers of this blog know how much of a massive fan I am of M.C. Frank, author of the ‘No Ordinary Star’ trilogy and the beautiful ‘Salt for Air’. I’ve been so excited for her Robin Hood retelling, which I’ve seen teased on most of her social media platforms… until today, where my excitement reached new heights, as she revealed the cover! Behold!
Isn’t it stunning? And we have a trailer, too! Check it out –
This Robin Hood book will steal your heart.
Robin Hood, hidden deep in the Sherwood Forest, is fighting to restore the land to its rightful king, surrounded by his faithful friends, green leaves and clear skies. He is also fighting to keep himself and his company alive, but that comes second. Burdened with secrets, betrayal and an incredible responsibility, this is what keeps him awake at nights: Survivor’s guilt. The girl he was in love with as a lad died saving his life five years ago. Robin has exhausted himself looking for her with no hope of finding her alive, when he meets a slender youth who surprises him with his courage and skill with the bow and arrow. Little knowing that both their lives will be irrevocably changed.
In the grand castle in Nottinghamshire lives an unhappy and tortured lady, forced to obey the wishes of a tyrannical Sheriff and his ruthless assassin, Guy of Gisborne. They have trained her for years, with one purpose in mind only: she is to be disguised as a boy, and sent to the forest to assassinate Robin Hood. On their orders, she pretends to sneak out to the forest in danger of her life, to come to the aid of the outlaws. When, in reality, it is she who will destroy them.
Then, Robin and the “boy” meet. Two worlds collide, resulting in unimaginable danger and intense romance. Maybe, just maybe, they can be each other’s salvation. But will they survive the unimaginable truth when the past comes back to haunt them both? In honor of the girl who saved his life, Robin has vowed never to hurt a woman. So it’s only a woman who can kill him. But what if his assassin falls in love with him? What if she’s never stopped loving him, not for a single moment?
Filled with adventure, intrigue and wild romance, this is a Robin Hood story unlike any you have ever read before!
