Hunted by both her father and the Sheriff, she is forced to hide her identity and seek refuge as an outlaw in Sherwood Forest.
Disguised as a lad for protection, Robin maintains a careful isolation from the world around her . . . until the day she saves a young boy being beaten to death by the Sheriff’s soldiers. So begins Robin’s rise to leadership in Sherwood forest and of the unfortunates who seek refuge therein. But while her endeavors to provide a life of honor and purpose for her people win her high esteem, they enrage the Sheriff of Nottingham, who plots a deadly fate for her and her band.
As the Sheriff’s traps close in around her and assassins seek to bring her down, Robin must risk losing love, leadership, and life if she is to save her people and fulfill her destiny as one of history’s greatest heroes.
Alive with adventure and danger, sword fights and heists, hatred and love, Robin: Lady of Legend is the never-before-told tale of the girl who became Robin Hood.
