Scarlet has captured the hearts of readers as well as the heart of Robin Hood, and after ceaseless obstacles and countless threats, readers will finally find out the fate of the Lady Thief.
Imprisoned by Prince John for months, Scarlet finds herself a long way from Nottinghamshire. After a daring escape from the Prince's clutches, she learns that King Richard’s life is in jeopardy, and Eleanor of Aquitaine demands a service Scarlet can’t refuse: spy for her and help bring Richard home safe. But fate—and her heart—won’t allow her to stay away from Nottinghamshire for long, and together, Scarlet and Rob must stop Prince John from going through with his dark plans for England. They cannot rest until he’s stopped, but will their love be enough to save them once and for all? (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
This book was a little bit of a flop for me. I was happy to know how everything worked out, but Scarlet reverted to a lot of the tendencies I found so annoying in the first book. She is super indecisive in the first third of the book, but does eventually get it all together. I was actually expecting this book to go in a totally different direction, but perhaps that’s just me.
This book is a lot less action and a lot more political maneuvering as well. Though applicable and accurate, I found it made the book move a bit slower than the others. I’d still recommend it if you have read the first two books, but otherwise it's MEH.
