It really saddens me that more people have not read this delightful retelling of Robin Hood. At the moment there are only two ratings on Goodreads and one review (mine). I’m just going to leave a link to it on Amazon here for you. Do with it what you will. (Linking of my own free will. I get absolutely nothing for this.) I mean it’s free on kindle unlimited. I’m just sayin’. Okay, okay, on to the review!

Robin Lockslay is a street urchin. And as many street urchins are, she is an excellent thief. Her thieving leads her into the life of a man she calls Richard Lionheart. Together they spy on Richard’s company to try to keep the bad guys at bay. When Richard suddenly goes missing, Robin and her crew of diverse satellite characters are slung into a chase that leads down some very dangerous paths. Breaking and entering, high-stakes poker, it’s all just part of the quest for Lionheart.

Originally, this was published as a serial, but the author then compiled them all into a novel. So glad she did. This book is such fun! It’s fast-paced, it’s funny, and I just loved Robin! I mean, it’s about time someone rewrote this tale with a female protagonist, amiright!?

One of the challenges for Book Riot’s 2018 Read Harder Challenge is to read a “one-sitting book”. This totally qualifies! It’s an easy read, and it’s just delightful. I highly recommend it.

I received the first two episodes in exchange for an honest review, and then I went out and bought the darn thing because I liked it that much!

You. Guys! This is so fun!

Robin Lockslay is a bit of a Robin Hood retelling, but a very modern take on the story. Robin is equal parts do-gooder and jewel thief (per usual), but Pecherczyk infuses such depth to the character — even in this very short first episode of the serial.

It’s fun, it’s fast, and it’s just darling. I enjoyed this episode so much I immediately went looking for the rest of the serial and discovered that the author had compiled them all into a novel…so I bought it! That’s pretty high praise for a book reviewer right there.

I will do a full review after I’ve finished the novel, but I just had to get a word out now about this lovely fairy tale retelling. Go get it!!!!
