Annotations for Scarlet
Baker & Taylor
In a new version of the Robin Hood legend, Scarlet--a fearless young woman who disguises herself as a boy named Will--shadows Robin Hood, but when Gisbourne, a ruthless bounty hunter, is hired by the Sheriff of Nottingham to capture Robin and his band of thieves, Robin must become Will's protector, risking his own life in the process.
Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance. Posing as one of Robin Hood's thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire. Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in. It's only her fierce loyalty to Robin--whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her--that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.
