Scarlet has a secret. While many people know the truth about her outstanding thievery skills, they don’t know that she is a girl. But Scarlet is holding other secrets even closer to her heart, secrets that she won’t tell her leader, Rob, otherwise known as Robin Hood, including the fact that she’s in love with him.

This young adult book contains:

• Groping
• A girl kisses another girl, believing her to be a boy (supposed to be humorous)
• Profanity (d*mn, bloody, h*ll, b*stard, and religious exclamations are used throughout; b*tch is said once)
• Violence (bloody deaths, fights, and injuries)
• Torture
• Suggestive conversations
• Some references to sex
• References to “bits” (a.k.a. breasts)

Scarlet brings new, original twists to the well-known Robin Hood story. The plot drags a bit in the beginning, but soon picks up and is quite an exciting, action-packed adventure.

  1. I loved this book! I agree that it takes a while to get into but I really, really enjoyed it in the end. I haven't picked up book two yet. I guess that's because I waited too long (almost two years!) for it that I need to reread Scarlet before moving on to the next and I don't have time for that yet :( I also loved Cruel Beauty and Tiger Lily. Great recommendations :D

    1. Thank you, Haraiah! I love Rosamund Hodge's books. Have you read her newest book, Crimson Bound? I enjoyed that one even more than Cruel Beauty!
