I always hem and haw over the star ratings maybe I should give this a five I thought it was a well written and exciting YA book Robin Hood is the Robin Hood of legend both reckless and gallant The descriptions of the woods are compelling and make me wish I were there The story could confuse some young readers though because it seems to be historic fiction but is really fantasy One thinks it is a tale set in the brutal middle ages but then suddenly finds references not only to spirits and powers but also to faeries who actually exist The aelfe are definitely less malevolent than in many tales of faerie but still are mysterious and beautiful I think a lot of young girls would really enjoy this independent yet loving young heroine who is trying to find her place in the world Older readers will find Rowan a bit too modern in her sensibilities In addition Lionel while interesting seems a bit redundant too similar to Little John AND a minstrelPotential problems for Christian parents Rowan s mother is called a witch not only does she practice the healing arts she also has special powers including apparently the ability to disappear although then why doesn t she disappear in chapter 1 oh well slight plot hole perhaps Rowan s mother is not married but does have a child A reference is made to the lord s privilege of sleeping with peasant girls at age 14 Lionel is foppish and somewhat effeminate Rowan speaks or prays to the spirits of the water the trees etc Because Rowan is so sympathetic and because the forest is described as so beautiful I could see sensitive young readers being drawn to this sort of nature religionThere are many references to magical things but the book doesn t come off as an occultic book but rather a fantasy tale Still it would be interesting to see how the author deals with Christianity in the character of Friar Tuck

What a strange feeling to read a book and feel like it was written with me in mind I picked this one up on a whim I love stories with mediaeval settings have a soft spot for tales of Robin Hood and the title character shares my name my chosen name To be honest I wasn t expecting much I had never heard of the book or its author and thought it might be nothing than mildly diverting children s litIn the first chapter the book surprised me and I revised my estimates both of my expectations and of the target audience This is not a book for ages 9 12 but like 12 15 I was a little worried when there was magic so uickly in the story I like fantasy but I m wary of seeing it mixed with historical settings and non magical legends But in the end I felt like this book had just the right amount of magic and flavour of paganism about itAnd then then 13 year old Rosemary rejects her femininity declaring outright that she does not want to be a girl or anything that comes with it dresses herself in boy s clothes adopts the name Rowan and I was lost I know some people would consider Rowan a Marysue with her magic half elfin mother Robin Hood as her secret father elf gifted bow and arrows and special half wolf dog but I don t care she is everything I want from a young protagonist tough brave kind competent and nonbinary Yes I know that the author is probably just making comment via the character that being young and female in the mediaeval period sucked but I choose to read the character as nonbinary and there is nothing in the text to contradict this reading Sometimes Rowan wishes to be feminine and sometimes masculine and neither choice is framed as a bad thingRowan is befriended by three other characters who don t fit into the world they inhabit a half wolf pup she names Tykell a large sensitive somewhat feminine minstrel boy named Lionell and a runaway princess named Ettarde who scorns her father s plans to marry her off as well as the idea that a woman s only value is in her appearance and her chastity Together they rescue Robin Hood from the Sherriff of Nottingham and Rowan must decide whether or not to tell him he s her father and that she s not the outlaw boy he thinks she isThe story was engaging and in places surprising The characters were likeable and realistic the villains were a little flat but oh well The ending was satisfying and unexpected I read the whole thing in one sitting I want to believe that Rowan grew up gender non conforming into a great healer and fighter and that she and Etty fell in love and lived happily ever after And I just checked and apparently there are 5 books in this series as well as many other books by this author I may need do some reading

First in a series of 5 This really is a kids book but it s fun light reading and may also be enjoyed by those of all ages who are fans of the Robin Hood legend Rowan or Rosemary has always been told by her mother that she is the daughter of the outlaw Robin Hood When she is left alone in the world she decides to run off to the forest disguised as a boy to join Robin s band and to find out what kind of man her absentee father might beThere are the expected outside the law hijinks as well as some mythic revelations it seems that Rowan is also a uarter elven although this never plays heavily into the plot perhaps it becomes significant in subseuent books Rowan must come to terms with Robin Hood and with herself as she matures and forms her own group of friends in the greenwood
