    I had high hopes for this book hey, a retelling of Robin Hood With a strong Marian What s not to like Unfortunately, it turns out it was awful The plot, even in places where Roberson was being creative and not following the original story Marian on trial for witchcraft was totally predictable The action scenes and the final denouement were extremely brief and very unsatisfying She gets points for making Marianof an active than a passive character, but some of her actions were real I had high hopes for this book hey, a retelling of Robin Hood With a strong Marian What s not to like Unfortunately, it turns out it was awful The plot, even in places where Roberson was being creative and not following the original story Marian on trial for witchcraft was totally predictable The action scenes and the final denouement were extremely brief and very unsatisfying She gets points for making Marianof an active than a passive character, but some of her actions were really absurd i.e., The Sheriff wants to marry me and is clearly willing to force me against my will, as he has shown several times He must be a nice guy I ll go confront him alone without telling anyone where I m going

    I really wanted to love this tale I read Roberson s Lady of the Forest a good 15 years ago, and really enjoyed it I loved Roberson s version of Marian how competent she was, and how matter of factly she dealt with the unpleasant realities that beset her I also like that Roberson didn t shrug away from the darkness in man I found the characters really compelling, and the gritty story that resulted has stuck with me all this time Her descriptions were great, the pacing was good, and it rea I really wanted to love this tale I read Roberson s Lady of the Forest a good 15 years ago, and really enjoyed it I loved Roberson s version of Marian how competent she was, and how matter of factly she dealt with the unpleasant realities that beset her I also like that Roberson didn t shrug away from the darkness in man I found the characters really compelling, and the gritty story that resulted has stuck with me all this time Her descriptions were great, the pacing was good, and it really made me feel for the characters.So when I ran across this sequel a few weeks ago, I bought it and instantly launched into reading it.First, I bought the ebook onfor my Kindle and there was a formatting issue that really interfered with my ability to read the story there was no line break or visual indicator between POV switches I d be reading about Marian, and a few paragraphs later I d realize I was reading about a completely different character at a different physical location, but there was nothing to signal a change of context This was really jarring to have to do the mental shifting myself several paragraphs after the fact based on what s unfolding.Second, and perhapstragically this book lacked the certain something that really made Lady of the Forest compelling to me None of the characters really seemed as well fleshed out this time around The storyline itself was very meh by comparison, too I liked aspects of it the family drama that played out with Robin and his father, and some of the individual plot points were amusing to me but for the most part, this book just felt flat to me Some of my favorite bits from the first book were the interactions between Robin and Marian, but those interactions here were, for the most part, lacking I liked how well developed the band of Merry Men was in the first story, but here each of those characters was very one note there wasn t the sense of development and the slow unfolding as we got into their psyches that we got in the first book In fact, overall, there was a lot of telling, not showing in this book which compares negatively to the showing, not telling that Roberson did so well in Lady of the Forest I was very disappointed that I couldn t like this sequel , because I really enjoyed the first one But this story just gets a resounding meh

    It felt really long and a bit tedious to get through.

    My only complaint is that the sequel to Lady of the Forest wasn t longer I loved it, I love Robin and Marian, and I love bad guys getting their comeuppance.

    This book is fine It lacks the unevenness of the much longer anddifficult book to which it is a sequel, but unfortunately some of the parts it s missing are what made that book so exciting to read, as I did repeatedly in my youth This book I definitely have read at least once, perhaps as many as two times before this occasion And yet I remembered nothing about it There was no feeling of oh, yes, this is when the French mercenary shows up or aww yeah she s going into the forest This book is fine It lacks the unevenness of the much longer anddifficult book to which it is a sequel, but unfortunately some of the parts it s missing are what made that book so exciting to read, as I did repeatedly in my youth This book I definitely have read at least once, perhaps as many as two times before this occasion And yet I remembered nothing about it There was no feeling of oh, yes, this is when the French mercenary shows up or aww yeah she s going into the forest nothing that happens here has any resonance whatsoever In the first book, the stakes were higher, and clearer, and the character dynamics were building and escalating This book is five years later but the relationships don t feel lived in so much as frozen in place it slike a fanfiction epilogue than its own novel The one thing I thought I remembered a resolution to the infertility plotline I appear to have invented out of whole cloth in my imagined memory of this book, and while as an adult I kind of like the way that non ending plays out, I don t think it carries narrative heft, which is probably why I made something up
