~~~About the Book~~~

Title:  The Forest Queen
Author:  Betsy Cornwell
Type:  Fiction
Genre:  
Published:  August 7, 2018
Format:  Digital
Source: Netgalley


From a New York Times bestselling author, a fresh, female-centered take on “Robin Hood” in which a young noblewoman, like the legendary hero, becomes an outlaw fighting for social justice. Perfect for fans of Marissa Meyer and Sarah J. Maas.

When sixteen-year-old Sylvie’s brother takes over management of their family’s vast estates, Sylvie feels powerless to stop his abuse of the local commoners. Her dearest friend asks her to run away to the woods with him, and soon a host of other villagers join them. Together, they form their own community and fight to right the wrongs perpetrated by the king and his noblemen. Perfect for fans of fairy tale retellings or anyone who loves a strong female lead, this gorgeously written take on the Robin Hood tale goes beyond the original’s focus on economic justice to explore love, gender, the healing power of nature, and what it means to be a family.

    Ahhhh I’ve been so intrigued by this one! But I’m taking a break from fantasy YA right now haha. I think I’ve read too much of it and that’s why I’m in a slump. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts about it though! Thanks so much for participating! 😀 ❤
