She leads a band of “Merry” men, stealing from the rich to provide the needs of her small and wily band, The Ghosts of Farthingdale. Peril lurks ahead and danger nips at their heels. Tranquility is all but a vain hope. Then, to make matters worse, she crosses paths and purposes with the most dangerous man of all—the one who may hold the key to her life—and her heart.
Dina Sleiman spins an enthralling tale of a young woman who is torn between her past and present. Her past has made her what she is—an outlaw of King John’s realm. Her present is rift with confusion and intrigue, distrust and desire, despair and reawakened dreams. After all that has happened to her, how anyone expect her to trust again?
Giving readers more than just the perspective of the main characters lends an air of mystery to this novel and draws us into the lives of the other characters, some of whom (I hope and imagine) will figure in the following books of the series. Using this method, Dina keeps her readers guessing about how it will all end empowering readers to journey with the characters to the last page. I’d suggest reading this book when you have some time stretching before you, because it will be difficult to put down once you start—this I know from experience.
