“Steeped in tradition but infused with feminism and political concerns, a Robin Hood for a new audience.” — Kirkus Reviews
“A lively adventure featuring a lionhearted heroine... plenty of appeal for readers of Tamora Pierce’s Protector of the Small quartet.” — Booklist
HarperTeen / 2019
Robin of Locksley is dead.
Maid Marian doesn’t know how she’ll go on, but the people of Locksley town, persecuted by the Sheriff of Nottingham, need a protector. And the dreadful Guy of Gisborne, the Sheriff’s right hand, wishes to step into Robin’s shoes as Lord of Locksley and Marian’s fiancé.
Who is there to stop them?
Marian never meant to tread in Robin’s footsteps—never intended to stand as a beacon of hope to those awaiting his triumphant return. But with a sweep of his green cloak and the flash of her sword, Marian makes the choice to become her own hero: Robin Hood.
