No big surprises, and the usual suspects and characters as we're used to in the Robin Hood legends. I found the author's constantly changing viewpoints in every chapter distracting, as it did affect the flow of the story line. I also found Marian having to constantly pick up her kirtle when they were walking through the forest and Robin's always raising his loquacious eyebrows got to be a bit old after a while. Where was the editor? And what was with a knight who served alongside Richard The Lionheart doing having to have Marion jump in and save him again and again? Also, the darker tone the author took with Robin's experiences in the Crusades affected his way with the "merry men" who weren't quite as merry as you see in other versions of this legend.
All in all with those minor quibbles aside an entertaining, interesting read, I had a hard time putting it down until the end, but not one I'll keep on my bookshelf to read again and again, nor is it a book that will stick with me long after I've returned it to the library. Side note, a very entertaining trilogy loosely based on the Robin Hood legends by Marsha Canham is worth looking into. Although much more romance oriented, the author's tongue is firmly planted in her cheek throughout the series and is great fun. Through a Dark Mist, In The Shadow of Midnight and The Last Arrow.
