Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance.
Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in.
It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.

The first word that comes to my mind when I think of this book is Amazing! This is one awesome book and I really wouldn't mind a sequel ....Actually I'm begging for one (A.C.Gaughen ,I hope you are listening!)
I've always been fascinated with the Robin Hood legend .So, when I found out that this book follows a woman who's part of the gang of thieves ,I was pretty skeptical because I was more interested in reading it from Robin's point of view than from a woman's but great reviews from other bloggers convinced me to give this one a shot (Thanks Jenny and Allison!)
I was sucked into this book right from the start and I loved almost every minute of it.It was impossible to put this book down...It's been toolong since I've stayed awake for almost an entire night to finish a book and I'm so glad that this book has gotten me out of my reading slump!
