Thank you to @dawbooks and @netgalley for the e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Outcasts of the Wild-Wood is the second book in a historical fantasy series that puts a twist on the familiar Robin Hood legend. In this story we follow an orphan named Nick and a cursed Robin, as they attempt to rescue a trapped Marian before she is lost forever.
I thought that the premise of the story was interesting. I liked how Atwood blended aspects of different fairytales and legends and created something new. I’m also a sucker for Robin and Marian, and fairies, so this story had lots of elements I love. I also feel, however that there was a lot, maybe even too much, going on in this book – and sometimes that interrupted my enjoyment of the story. I would have also liked to see more character development. I feel like this had the potential to be amazing, and I’m interested to see where the author takes the story next.
Are you planning on reading this book? Or have you read the first book in the series? Let me know your thoughts.
