Scarlet's true identity has been revealed, but her future is uncertain. Her forced marriage to Lord Gisbourne threatens Robin and Scarlet's love, and as the royal court descends upon Nottingham for the appointment of a new Sheriff, the people of Nottingham hope that Prince John will appoint their beloved Robin Hood. But Prince John has different plans for Nottingham that revolve around a fateful secret from Scarlet's past even she isn't yet aware of. Forced to participate at court alongside her ruthless husband, Scarlet must bide her time and act the part of a noblewoman-a worthy sacrifice if it means helping Robin's cause and a chance at a future with the man she loves. With a fresh line of intrigue and as much passion as ever, the next chapter in Scarlet's tale will have readers talking once again.
Yes, that just happened and yes, I just died and yes, DAMN YOU A.C. GAUGHEN, WHY WHY WHY. But ahem, let me calm myself down…… OKAY. This book is fantastic. It reels you in, makes you fall in love with all the characters, and then BAM, a slice through your heart. But anyway, if I were to compare to the first book, I would say that this second book is better. But then again, it’s better because there’s more adventure in this book. If you’ve read the previous book, you would know that Gisbourne is back. Yep, that little crappidy crap is back. And he wants Scarlet. If you think your heart broke for the first book, after what happened to Robin, THINK AGAIN. This book will keep you at the edge of your seat, your heart pumping and blood roaring through your ears, because you’re just so damn scared that something really really bad is going to happen.
John Little was more likeable in this book, and if you kinda hated him in the first book (like I did), then you will learn to love him in this book. DAMN IT DAMN IT ALL. Out of all the characters in this series, I think John made the most progress towards character development. You will see him grow up before your very eyes, from that annoying flirt to someone so much more better.
I would not say much about Rob and Scarlet, because I ship them and they are as awesome (or even better than) as in the first book, and OH MY GOD. Really. I cannot wrap my mind around what I just read. Guys, really, just read this book and keep reading this book, and when you have finally finished, come back and comment on this post, because I am here for you.
