I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel. It was exciting and had historical accuracy as well. I loved the personalities of the members of the Merry Men. My personal favorite was Helena. She was a fierce archer and had a spunky, sarcastic personality. The plot was very well written and I appreciated that the romance of the story was tied in with the rest and not the center of attention. I would recommend this book to people who like tales of Robin Hood or re-told fairy tales and history. I would suggest this book for readers aged 13 and up.
