by Melanie Dickerson
Let me be clear. This is Melanie’s best book yet.
As you probably know, her books are based off of fairy tales. This one is a reversed Robin Hood story where a female, Odette, is a poacher in the king’s forest. She is only acting as such to provide for the poor. Of course, the man she falls in love with happens to be the forester hired to keep poachers off the land. Ahhh…Thus we have a great story!
What I really love about this book is how faithful the characters are. They seek God and both are mature from the start. Desiring to serve God and help the poor and needy, she is torn over breaking the laws to do so. Jorgan, the hero, is of solid character and also seeks to serve God. If you know me AT ALL, you know that I love a hero that stays true in all circumstances. I will not elaborate, but will only say that he is true.
Well written. It is obvious that this is written for a broader, older audience. Melanie’s previous books have been YA novels and I believe this one is different. The plot moved quickly, without too much description (you know what I mean…I don’t need to know the color of everybody’s shirt and each decoration at the masquerade). The characters were heroes that you could adore from start to finish. 5 Solid Stars.
