Publisher's Summary

Ronin’s son is dead, and Maid Marion is gone. But a sorceress banished to the woods can bring his son back if he and his Silver Raiders are willing to do something for her first. She finds there's nothing Ronin Hood won't do for his son.

Anika finds herself drawn to the mystery of the woods and the thieves who live within, but the cost of associating with the Silver Raiders becomes higher than she's willing to pay. The darkness of the woods seeps into the Raider's hearts, blurring the lines between hero and villain. 

Anika's fight for freedom turns into a fight to survive the dangers of the trees, whose magic should have never been awoken.

This isn't the tale of Robin Hood you remember.

This is a companion novel to The Storyteller's Daughter.

Less Fun Follow Up

I loved the first book in the series and was psyched for this one. I enjoyed it though I wasn't blown away by this one. The characters were less compelling with Ronin being the exception. The plot was fine just not as encompassing as the first. I think had I listened to this first, I might have given it a higher rating.
The narration was great.

I was given an audio copy by the author; all opinions are my own.

These Woods share a darker side of a fairytales

I enjoyed the intrigue and mystery that was woven into this tale and the magic in the woods kept me reading to find out more. A story of a character who has a lot of spunk to her while she is trying to integrate herself into a new society. Her story eventually intertwines with the silver raiders, who aren’t as they seem to be.

The narrator adds a vibrance to this story that is nothing less than whimsical and magical.

What a delight!

I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

I actually think I liked this book better than the first in the series. It felt like a wonderful blend of Jane Austen court drama and a classic fairytale retelling.

Following the events of The Storyteller’s Daughter, Anika is established as Lady of WaterEdge Manor but it isn’t quite the adventure she was looking for. After the war the villages are struggling to survive, and Anika is afraid of losing the lands she so recently acquired. When she comes across a group of bandits playing Robin Hood, she is forced to question her morals as well as what she is willing to do to feel as though she belongs.

Ellen Quay does a lovely job with the narration. I was never pulled out of the story, and there were no noticeable mistakes. I was very impressed with her ability to do different and distinct male voices without sounding silly.

Spoilers:

I love a good happily ever after, and this book even had a quick little cliffhanger nugget at the end that I was not anticipating so I am excited to listen to the third book once it is available.
I did find some of the “plot twists” predictable, but not upsettingly so. Overall the book had a consistent tone and it worked.
I kind of wish Landon would have come to live with Anika, but I understand why he was sent to live with Jack and his wife. But it made me sad.

Good book

This book has a bit of a Robin Hood retelling of robbing the rich and giving to the poor, but the band of thieves are working towards a much larger goal. I like the main character Anika, she is a strong female character who isn’t afraid to work hard to help others. This was a good story with a lot of great characters who grow with the storyline.
