Synopsis

Ronin’s son is dead, and Maid Marion is gone. But a sorceress banished to the Woods can bring his son back if he and his Silver Raiders are willing to do something for her first. She finds there’s nothing Ronin Hood won’t do for his son…

Anika finds herself drawn to the mystery of the Woods and the thieves who live within, but the cost of associating with the Silver Raiders becomes higher than she’s willing to pay. The darkness of the Woods seeps into the Raider’s hearts, blurring the lines between hero and villain, until Anika’s fight for freedom turns into a fight to survive the magic of the trees that should have never been awoken.

This isn’t the tale of Robin Hood you remember.


Review

Thank you to TBR and Beyond Tours and author Victoria McCombs for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. To see the rest of the Tour Schedule please click here!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this retelling of Robin Hood. McCombs’s take on the story was truly distinctive and super creative. The magic system that she created was well thought out and very fun to see come to life. Anika is a wonderful MC and it was so nice to see her journey in this story. I wanted to see her succeed in anything she set her mind to. If you’re a fan of love triangles, this story has one with two completely different love interests. It was fun to see the dynamic that came from this triangle and it definitely helped the pacing of the plot. I was dying to see where the relationships would end up. The setting of the book was nicely written as well. I love any sort of story with a backdrop of the woods. It gave the story a nice whimsical element to it.

I was also gifted a copy of the first book in this world, The Storyteller’s Daughter, and I found that this was a nice paring for it. McCombs’s storytelling is wonderful and I cannot wait to see what else the author has in store for us.

Meet the Author

Some of the things I love most in this world are peppermint hot chocolate, peanut butter ice cream, golfing dates, Jesus, and game nights with family. And of course, books.

Fairytales were my first love. I became obsessed with the idea that if one was brave enough, they could defeat dragons, and that true love was real. I met my true love in college, and together we raise our two boys. I have my dad to thank for teaching me to love writing, and my mom to thank for allowing us to keep a wall of medieval weapons in the house, which curated my love for that time period.

My dream is to write vivid worlds and charming characters that will leave an imprint on my reader’s hearts, the way that so many books have done for me.
