Robin: Lady of Legend is a fun twist to the classic Robin Hood tale, the twist being that Robin is a '"lady". Robin's father, Lord Locksley, has betrothed her to the disliked Sheriff of Nottingham against her wishes. To avoid this she runs away to Sherwood Forest where she lives for a time on her own. She hones her archery skills, learns how to use a sword and other survival skills all disguised as a young man. One day she comes across a young man who she can not seem to get rid of. She is not particularly keen on having anyone else in her camp but she lets him stay and he soon brings men women and children that have been displaced by the Sheriff's men for not being able to pay the exorbitant taxes that are required of them. So along with her merry men, they start robbing from the rich and giving the money to the people that truly need it. I thoroughly enjoyed this take on the Robin Hood story, very refreshing indeed. A very well researched tale that the reader can immerse themselves in. This novel has plenty of adventure, humor and very believable characters. A must read...for the medieval history lover..
