Scarlet has captured the hearts of readers as well as the heart of Robin Hood, and after ceaseless obstacles and countless threats, readers will finally find out the fate of the Lady Thief.
Only the greatest loves can survive great danger. . .
Imprisoned by Prince John for months, Scarlet finds herself a long way from Nottinghamshire. After a daring escape, she learns that King Richard's life is in jeopardy, and Eleanor of Aquitaine needs Scarlet's help to free him. For a lifelong thief, this newfound allegiance to the crown-her family-is a strange feeling.
Scarlet knows that helping Eleanor will put her and those she loves back in Prince John's sights. Desperate not to risk anyone's life but her own, Scarlet formulates a plan to help save the king on her own. But fate-and her heart-won't allow her to stay away from Nottinghamshire for long. Even if Scarlet and Rob can together stop Prince John from going through with his dark plans for England, will their love be enough to save them once and for all?

The final installment in the Scarlet trilogy proved to be, by far, the most heartbreaking HAHAHA. I’m serious. I have no idea how many times I actually cried over this last book. If you think the previous book, Lady Thief, was sad, well this final book is the one that will shatter your heart.

Lion Heart continues from Gisbourne’s unfortunate death and Scarlet’s arrest. This is the book in which you’ll see a different side to Scarlet. She will finally embrace the royalty side. Instead of Scarlet, she will finally be Lady Marian, the lady that she was supposed to be before Gisbourne ruined everything. Filled with more schemes and Prince John’s cruelty, you will see a side to the characters that you’ve never really seen before. Both Robin and Scarlet would have to decide if their love could triumph the storm that will be coming towards them. I was super super frustrated while reading this book because it feels like everything was pushing them AWAY from each other, and it was so scary.

And then there’s Prince John. Oh man, I have never hated a villain as bad as him (okay, maybe Dolores Umbridge was the worst villain) but yeah OH MY GOD. I wanted to hurt him physically. Like, go into the book and rip his limbs apart. That man is a devil. HMPH. But hey, you know what? This book is the ultimate best in the whole series. THE ULTIMATE BEST. If you’re stuck at Lady Thief and wondering if you should read this book, HELL YES. HELL FREAKING YES.

Again, I shall repeat something I said since the first book, Scarlet’s review:

I have never loved Robin Hood before, until I read this book. So thank you, A.C. Gaughen for the amazing book.
