Set in the UK (2)

'Set in the UK' is a series of posts me and Donna, my UK appreciation month co-host over at Book passion for life, will be running throughout November to highlight books that are set in the UK for you to discover.

Many readers know the tale of Robin Hood, but they will be swept away by this new version full of action, secrets, and romance. Posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the wrath of the evil Thief Taker Lord Gisbourne, Scarlet has kept her identity secret from all of Nottinghamshire.

Only the Hood and his band know the truth: the agile thief posing as a whip of a boy is actually a fearless young woman with a secret past. Helping the people of Nottingham outwit the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham could cost Scarlet her life as Gisbourne closes in.

It’s only her fierce loyalty to Robin—whose quick smiles and sharp temper have the rare power to unsettle her—that keeps Scarlet going and makes this fight worth dying for.

Scarlet is a retelling of Robin Hood told from the perspective of Will Scarlet and is set in Nottingham.
I loved this book, I loved the way it was written in the way that Scarlet would've talked then and the story was great too. You can see my review here if you'd like to find out more.


  1. I've had this one added on goodreads for a while now because the idea just sounds sooo awesome! Not only a retelling from Will's POV but he's actually a girl, too! Glad to hear it's well-done and worth reading :)

  2. I read and really enjoyed Scarlett :) I loved that Will was a girl!!


Go on, comment and tell me what you think of this post... I dare you!
