Book Review–A Daring Sacrifice


About the Book

In a reverse twist on the Robin Hood story, a young medieval maiden stands up for the rights of the mistreated, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. All the while, she fights against her cruel uncle who has taken over the land that is rightfully hers. Forced to live in the woods and hide with the poor people she's grown to love, she works to save and protect them, but she never anticipates falling in love with the wealthy knight who represents all she's come to despise.

My Rating: 4

Of the three Robin Hood retellings that I have read in the last year, A Daring Sacrifice, was by far my favorite. Since the first book in this series, An Uncertain Choice, ended with a bit of a cliffhanger foreshadowing this book, I was very anxious to find out what happened. I very muc enjoyed getting to know Collin after meeting him in the first book and getting to see him find a girl. And while it takes a lot for me to really like a fictional heroine, Jody Hedlund has so far managed to endear me to both of hers in these books. A Daring Sacrifice, like the first book, is a sweet romance, but with enough reality to make it interesting. Like poor Collin! The end had me a little nervous to be sure. And like the last book, it ended with a little cliffhanger to set up the next book. I am greatly looking forward to reading on in this series.

I received a copy of this book free from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
