Robin: Lady of Legend by R.M. ArceJaeger
Another free Kindle read has emerged as one of my favorite reads. Robin: Lady of Legend is a new spin on the old Robin Hood tale. I am a huge fan of historical/fantasy reading, so I picked this one up eagerly when it was a free read.
In this version of the legend, Robin is a young lady, not a man, who ends up in Sherwood Forest when she flees a dreaded betrothal to the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham. She passes herself off as a man to protect her life, and she eventually becomes the leader of the famed band of Merry Men.
I loved, loved, loved this sweet and entertaining version of an old tale. With lots of daring adventure, a hint of romance, and all the best-loved parts of the original Robin Hood tale, this was definitely a 5 star read for me. The romance is PG rated (at most), and the violence isn't very graphic, so I'd give this a safe PG rating for any fantasy fan.
