"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I am excited for Sherwood by Meagan Spooner! Let me tell you, I am a sucker for fairy tale retellings. I don't know why but I love them. Robin Hood doesn't get enough attention in the retellings department, and this looks like a really cool take on it. As far as I can tell, it basically takes place after the known story ends. I only have a basic understanding of the story, so hopefully I'll be okay going in. I've also never heard much about Maid Marian, so I'm excited to see her stand up for herself and take on the role of Robin Hood. Adding to the already interesting premise, the cover is a real eye-grabber. I see the cover and I immediately want to know the story that goes along with it!
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.
