Read full description of the books Rowan Hood: Outlaw Girl of Sherwood Forest:3 1/2
From the author of the Enola Holmes stories (which, if you've been paying attention, you know I adore) - a similar type of story which follows the daughter of Robin Hood. Since I quite like Robin Hood as much as Sherlock Holmes, I just had to give them a go.
I thought the story was pretty good, and I liked the magical/fae (aelfe in the book) aspects of the story, definitely adding a fantasy element to the story.
I admit I was a bit worried that the stories would be a little too similar to the EH books, but I think Springer did a good job of making the characters and the narration/voice of the two series very different - both of which suited to their particular heroines. (Also, this one is told in third person perspective, which gives it a different feel.)
I thought the character of Rowan was fairly well developed, but a lot of the other characters were less so. As the beginning of a series it was a good general introduction - even if I wish (view spoiler)[Rowan had joined Robin Hood's band instead of sort of creating her own (hide spoiler)] - but I look forward to more development in the future.
I will, definitely, be continuing with this series.

BIO -- NANCY SPRINGER
Nancy Springer has passed the fifty-book milestone, having written that many novels for adults, young adults and children, in genres including mythic fantasy, contemporary fiction, magical realism, horror, and mystery -- although she did not realize she wrote mystery until she won the Edgar Allan Poe Award from the Mystery Writers of America two years in succession. DARK LIE, recently released from NAL, is her first venture into mass-market psychological suspense.
Born in Montclair, New Jersey, Nancy Springer moved with her family to Gettysburg, of Civil War fame, when she was thirteen. She spent the next forty-six years in Pennsylvania, raising two children (Jonathan, now 38, and Nora, 34), writing, horseback riding, fishing, and birdwatching. In 2007 she surprised her friends and herself by moving with her second husband to an isolated area of the Florida panhandle, where the birdwatching is spectacular and where, when fishing, she occasionally catches an alligator.
