Robin of Locksley is dead.

When news comes that he's fallen in battle at the King's side in the Holy Land, Maid Marian doesn’t know how she’ll go on. Betrothed to Robin, she was free to be herself, to flout the stifling rules of traditional society and share an equal voice with her beloved when it came to caring for the people of her land.

Now Marian is alone, with no voice of her own. The people of Locksley, persecuted by the Sheriff of Nottingham, are doomed to live in poverty or else face death by hanging. The dreadful Guy of Gisborne, the Sherriff’s right hand, wishes to step into Robin’s shoes as Lord of Locksley, and Marian’s fiancé. Society demands that she accept her fate, and watch helplessly as her people starve.

When Marian dons Robin's green cloak, and takes up his sword and bow, she never intended that anyone should mistake her for Robin, returned from the Holy Land as a vigilante. She never intended that the masked, cloaked figure she created should stand as a beacon of hope and justice to peasant and noble alike. She never intended to become a legend.

But all of Nottingham is crying out for a savior. So Marian must choose to make her own fate and become her own hero...

Robin Hood.


3 Reasons You Should Read…

Sherwood by Meagan Spooner


  • A badass FEMALE Robin Hood?! Sign us up. Maid Marian has always been one of our favorites, but in this? She’s something else. Something special. Someone everyone should read about.
  • What did we love the most? The characters? Always. Meagan always gives us a crew of misfits that we love and this was no different. But this time the star was the writing. This was a retelling that felt completely new and completely mesmerizing.
  • If you’re in the market for a YA retelling of Robin Hood that is filled with romance, compelling characters and writing that will have you begging for more- all wrapped up in a package that only Meagan Spooner could deliver- look no further.
