Publisher's Summary

Nathan Makaryk's epic and daring debut rewrites the Robin Hood legend, giving voice to those history never mentioned and challenging who's really a hero and a villain.

No king. No rules. 

England, 1191. King Richard is half a world away, fighting for God and his own ambition. Back home, his country languishes, bankrupt and on the verge of anarchy. People with power are running unchecked. People without are growing angry. And in Nottingham, one of the largest shires in England, the sheriff seems intent on doing nothing about it.

As the leaves turn gold in the Sherwood Forest, the lives of six people - Arable, a servant girl with a secret; Robin and William, soldiers running from their pasts; Marion, a noblewoman working for change; Guy of Gisbourne, Nottingham's beleaguered guard captain; and Elena Gamwell, a brash, ambitious thief - become intertwined.

And a strange story begins to spread....

How historical does a historical novel need to be

I really do try not to get too arsey about the history in historical fiction. I read Fantasy novels purporting to be based on mediaeval Britain so hey nonny nonny pedantry isn’t worth the effort when reading for enjoyment. However, I do expect authors to try. Nobody but nobody in 12th century England ever snuggled up to a sack of potatoes which wouldn’t arrive from South America until 400 years later!

Would have done better in the fantasy category

Historical and language inaccuracies were too distracting, I got a third of the way through then gave up. Respect to the author, it seemed very appealing, but his editorial team slipped up.
