About the Book
Release Date: June 9th 2020
I love the story of Robin Hood. The princess falls in love with the philanthropist bad boy. What more could you want? How about the story of their daughter?
Isabelle grew up in a priory but when soldier’s invade one night and her mother sends her away to find her father, who she never knew existed, she doesn’t hesitate. She trusts her mother wholeheartedly but also wonders why she never told her about him. She always thought Robin Hood was just a story, not a real person, but when she finds herself among his Merry Men it finally sinks in. She has a father. She has to keep her identity a secret for everyone’s safety but you can tell as time goes by, and she gets to know each of the individuals she’s travelling with, that not telling them is getting more and more difficult.
I really liked Isabelle’s character. I enjoyed getting to know her through her experience navigating having been thrown into some intense situations. I loved the banter between her and Adam, one of the cute Merry Men, and the competition she feels with Helena when it comes to knowing her way around a bow and arrow. Despite being thrown into a world she never knew existed she’s able to handle it well.
I enjoyed the adventures they came across throughout the book and seeing small connections to the original story. Overall I felt this was a great retelling and now I think I’ll go put on some Disney + !
