Booklist - 10/15/2016 This new spin on the Robin Hood story introduces Elinor Dray, a preteen novice. Not simply a nun, she is also a member of the League of Archers, a team of childhood friends who poach from the local baron’s land. They idolize Robin Hood but never think of filling his outlaw shoes, until Elinor is accused of his murder. His death reveals the abbess of the nunnery as Maid Marian, and now Ellie is on the run, and Marian set to hang unless the League of Archers can find a way to contact the disbanded Merry Men and mount a rescue. In this version, Robin Hood is a deeply flawed man whose heroics often come at a high price for friend and foe alike. Ellie and her League are a likable troupe who rise above the stereotype of plucky urchins and learn to make tough choices about loyalty and honor. This is a highly enjoyable adventure story that should appeal to a wide range of readers. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
