Scarlet

Scarlet - A.C. Gaughen After having so many great reviews from bloggers I trust I knew I had to get this retelling of Robin Hood told from the female perspective. Knowing that Scarlet was Will Scarlet reborn from the ashes of Marian made me more intrigued. I was not disappointed. I really enjoyed this retelling where a female is the main character and is intelligent, kick ass and interesting.

I know there are a lot of criticisms of the language in the book. Scarlet talks like a commoner so it makes sense. For those of you who are bothered by a dialect of poor grammar, then be assured that once you get into the story, it seems to flow. It didn't seem to bother me more than a couple of pages. Perhaps reading highlander books helped me to flow into it much quicker. :)

I give this book 4 1/2 stars. If you enjoy retellings especially where the female takes on a whole new persona and kicks ass then I say go get this book.
