In a reverse twist on the Robin Hood story, a young medieval maiden stands up for the rights of the mistreated, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. All the while, she fights against her cruel uncle who has taken over the land that is rightfully hers. Forced to live in the woods and hide with the poor people she's grown to love, she works to save and protect them, but she never anticipates falling in love with the wealthy knight who represents all she's come to despise.

My Review

A DARING SACRIFICE was a Robin Hood/mistress in distress/girl disguised as a boy/knight in shining armor story full of adventure, romance, sacrifice, and bravery. It begins with a desperate scene that immediately grabs the reader's attention. With fabulous characters, true villains, a heartbreaking story, and fantastic writing, it was a truly enjoyable story from beginning to end!

I loved how the author unveils the characters. You get a glimpse when you first meet them and then their stories slowly unfold and the plot progresses. I felt like I knew them and I also could understand their emotions, which drew me in more to the story. They're great characters, even the villains. I've always had a soft spot for Robin-Hood-like stories and this one was especially well done with a leading lady instead of leading gentleman and a white knight who tries to save her when its her people who need to be saved.

I loved the tie-in from the first book and the lead-off to the next as well. The only thing I would have liked more of was a little more development towards the end, but even with that, I loved this book. I literally could not put it down. I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book!
