I do love Robin Hood retellings and I love when a tough female character is involved, so I thought this would be right up my alley. Unfortunately, my biggest problem with the book was the characters. I found most of the main characters Rob, John, and Scarlet infuriating. Rob had the potential to be the dark brooding hero I usually find intriguing but he, on more than one occasion, proves himself to be a sexist asshole. John was a super creepy and clingy asshole who wouldn't take no for an answer. I was constantly rolling my eyes at Scarlet with her over the top self-sacrificing personality. My whole experience, with this otherwise adventure packed book, was just completely soured by the characters.
