This inventive retelling of Robin Hood focuses on Will Scarlet, who is not only one of Robin’s best thieves, she’s also a girl. (Gasp!) She has reasons for hiding her identity—and they’re about to be put to the test now that thief taker Lord Gisbourne is on the prowl. Will she put herself first or the people of Nottingham she’s sworn to protect? Scarlet grows tremendously across the trilogy, making for a satisfying reading experience.
