Publisher's Summary

Posing as one of Robin Hood's thieves to avoid the evil Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only Big John and Robin Hood know the truth - that the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. It's getting harder to hide as Gisbourne's camp seeks to find Scarlet and drive Robin Hood out of Nottinghamshire. But Scarlet's instinct for self-preservation is at war with a strong sense of responsibility to the people who took her in when she was on the run, and she finds it's not so easy to turn her back on her band and townspeople. As Gisbourne draws closer to Scarlet and puts innocent lives at risk, she must decide how much the people of Nottinghamshire mean to her, especially John Little, a flirtatious fellow outlaw, and Robin, whose quick smiles and temper have the rare power to unsettle Scarlet. Full of exciting action, secrets, and romance, this imaginative retelling of the classic tale will have listeners following every move of Robin Hood and band of thieves.

Gender Bending in Sherwood Forrest

Action, romance, and gender-bending in medieval England; Scarlet is satisfying in every way.

When my daughter was three, she was swept up in the legend of Robin Hood. She dressed up in green and shot imaginary arrows all through the house. She thought nothing of playing a “boy” character. By the time she was four, she’d learned enough at pre-school to know that the only place in the Robin Hood story for girls, was as Maid Marion: waiting.

But Scarlet is waiting for no one. She's on the run from the malevolent Lord Gisbourne and has joined Robin Hood's Merry Men as a boy. Nobody but Robin and Big John knows her secret.

Scarlet can take care of herself. “Rob and John shot daggers at each other. With their eyes, leastways. I’m the only one who shoots real daggers.”

But that doesn’t preclude some tantalizing romantic tension between her and Robin, “'I’ll keep your heart, Scar,' he whispered. 'If you keep mine.'”

Narrated by the honey-voiced Helen Stern, a veteran romance and erotica reader, she brings just the right amount of swagger and vulnerability to our heroine.

Ugh, one of the worst books I've ever heard.

I have a rule, start a book, finish a book. It took all I had to finish this book. This might be the worst book on Audible, in my opinion.

It was like reading Twilight, but with Robin Hood and Little John, instead of Edward and Jacob. And I hated Twilight!

if listening to someone whine for hours is your thing, then you'll love this book. I actually like story, plot and character development. There is none of that here. Even Robin, is reduced to a love sick teenager who can only whine and lash out.

Scarlet, is a whining girl, who can't decide if she wants to be a boy or a girl. But when anyone tries to talk to her or interact with her, she blows up at them and storms off. Then complains for 10 minutes about how no one understands her.

I actually found myself pulling for the villans, just so that the story would end. I'm glad I didn't waste a credit on this book. Thankfully, I got it on sale .

Great story, good narrator

Was a refreshing read compared to a lot of YA novels out as I felt I hand't heard the story 10 times before and who doesn't love robin hood? Strong female lead who isn't annoying with a swoon worthy hero.
