Ellie Hudson is the front-runner on the road to gold for the U.S. Olympic archery team. All she has to do is qualify at the trials in jolly old England. When Ellie makes some kind of crazy wrong turn in the caverns under Nottingham Castle—yes, that Nottingham—she ends up in medieval England.
Ellie doesn’t care how she got to the Middle Ages; she just wants to go home before she gets the plague. But people are suffering in Nottingham, and Ellie has the skills to make it better. What’s an ace archer to do while she’s stuck in Sherwood Forest but make like Robin Hood?
Pulled into a past life as an outlaw, Ellie feels her present fading away next to daring do-gooding and a devilishly handsome knight. Only, Ellie is on the brink of rewriting history, and when she picks up her bow and arrow, her next shot could save her past—or doom civilization’s future.
I had been eyeing this book for some time, and then one of my friends read it and told me how great it was! So obviously I then had to buy it. And I am so glad I did! It is a super cute gender bent Robin Hood retelling with a time travel kicker.
What would you do if you were a world class archer who stumbled into Nottingham in the Middle Ages? Answer: accidentally become Robin Hood! I really liked Ellie as a main character, she’s fiery and protective and trying not to break history. 😂
And the “merry men” 😍😍😍 I love all of them! And love how they are similar to the legend but also slightly different. My favourite is obviously James, but also Will. 💙
I am giving this 4.5 stars and only not giving it 5 stars because of the bits in modern times, really. I felt there could have been a bit more explanation, about her family (and more on her dad definitely) and the ending. Also, it is a little light in places, though that’s not a bad thing really!
A fun and quick read that I totally adored. I love the Robin Hood legend and this made my inner fangirl very happy 🙂
