OUTLANDER meets Robin Hood. Traveling through time to twelfth century England was never on Maryanne Warren’s to do list. She can return home, but only once she’s turned young outcast Robin of Woodhurst into Robin Hood. Simple. She’ll instigate a carriage robbery or two, then go back to life as she knows it. But somehow Rob slips past the walls she’s spent years building, making her care about his new cause—she doesn’t even want to think about the way his stare renders her speechless. As the time to return home draws closer, she becomes less certain she’s ready to leave. Perhaps her place is here at Rob’s side, as his Lady Marian. But the magic that sent her here has its own agenda, and Maryanne must decide which of her lives is the one worth fighting for.
When her father forces her to travel back in time to correct the mistake he made, Maryanne finds herself in the world of Robin Hood. She’s heard the stories about him growing up, that he’s a thief and murderer, but the only way she can get home is if she changes that story to one of a hero.
What I loved:
I loved the twist on the original Robin Hood. Robin isn’t a good guy, yet, and it’s up to Maryanne to change his path to the one we all know and love.
What was just okay:
There were times the story slowed down and was a little hard to push through but the characters and storyline were worth the read.
This is a great twist on the Robin Hood story we all know and love.
The relationships between the characters kept me reading.
