Overview

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 fiance. 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.

Much time is spent on details... they all work to create a richly immersive and creatively fresh world for a familiar story. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books Unlike the cardboard heroes of fairytales, Yeva is a very human girl who must discover the meaning of the deep yearning that has always been within her.

Marian's Robin Hood proposes 'the idea that one man could make a difference'--and that one woman can, too. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books A lively adventure featuring a lionhearted heroine... plenty of appeal for readers of Tamora Pierce's Protector of the Small quartet. --Booklist Steeped in tradition but infused with feminism and political concerns, a Robin Hood for a new audience. --Kirkus Reviews I wept, reading it. My heart needed it so badly. --Amie Kaufman, author of the New York Times bestselling Illuminae series Unlike the cardboard heroes of fairytales, Yeva is a very human girl who must discover the meaning of the deep yearning that has always been within her.

Author Information

New York Times bestselling author Meagan Spooner grew up reading and writing every spare moment of the day while dreaming about life as an archaeologist, a marine biologist, or an astronaut. She graduated from Hamilton College in New York State with a degree in playwriting. She's traveled all over the world, to places such as Egypt, Australia, South Africa, the Arctic, Greece, Antarctica, and the Gal pagos Islands, and there's a bit of every trip in every story she writes. She currently lives and writes in Asheville, North Carolina, but the siren call of travel is hard to resist, and there's no telling how long she'll stay there. She's the coauthor of the award-winning Starbound Trilogy (These Broken Stars, This Shattered World, Their Fractured Light) and the Skylark Trilogy (Skylark, Shadowlark, Lark Ascending) as well as this Beauty and the Beast retelling. In her spare time she plays guitar, plays video games, plays with her cat, and reads. www.meaganspooner.com
