And seductive sensory onslaught Gorgeous glorious and one of the best things I ve ever read Taken in combination with Shirewode as it must be to complete the story arc this was the best reading experience I ve had in the last 25 yearsI can t imagine writing a review that could do it justice This review by Jesse is 29082020 pdate after finishing the seriesI can t in good conscience let this review stand as it is I loved the first two books as it shows in my ent Do Not Bloody Touch Me Until I ve Finished The NEXT BOOKMy god this was GAAAAAAAAAH MY GOD Best book of the year so farThank you to my patient buddy reading friends Real life was a bitch and it took me a long time to finish should i start the next one right nowi kinda want to but HOLY FECK are they all this longi might could تاريخ جهنم use a fluff break before tackling the next eleventy seven bajillion page followp Note view spoilerI cannot emphasize enough that this series is not Romance and is not MM However these first two books are a complete duology and can be read as an MM story If you read beyond that be aware that the remainder of the series goes in a different direction hide spoiler 475 Aye Mi fell in love starsWARNING GUSHING AND UOTESNo spoilers i hope Maybe Apple Pie Homicide - A Cozy Mystery unintentional ones Silence Darkness Only a charred lump of ash remains and the horns blackened Then the lump moves Rises Covered in ash dark as the Horned Lord had been the figure is tall and hooded and it reaches for him First of all GAAAAAAHHHSecond of all GAAAAAAAHHHNow that that is out of the wayThis book is incredible Fantasy is not my go to genre because most of the time i don tnderstand half the shit that is going on That said i have found myself enjoying the ones i have read and this was no different I was confused at the beginning didn t nderstand half of the shit going on when i reached in the middle of chapter 4 i realized i was reading it wrong ie i was concentrating on not getting shit instead of going with the flow so i went back to the beginning and starting it all over again and let me tell you it was This story is the re imagining of the legends of Robin Hood I know nothing deep about Robinhood except the little the movie i watched showed me While reading this i felt the passion the author has when it comes to this legend The writing is stellar very engaging and detailed She gave me that expected She mixed this with old religion i am not a fan of anything to do with religion I find it so hypocritical and sometimes that takes me out of the story Ms Hennig did an amazing job with balancing The religion aspects was not shoved in my face and i found myself feeling sorry for the some of characters instead of wanting to strangle them Some i wanted dead Like torture ry dead GAAAAAHH The characters are soo well devel. Ill be the greenwode’s last bastion of the Old Religion but a young and devout nobleman could well be their destruction Gamelyn Boundys whom Rob and Marion have both befriendedIn a risky bid for happiness Rob dares.
Loved it I m not sure I can do justice to The Wode This Greenwode was a perfect introduction of characters and world and what introduction this has beenI m not into Robin Hood myths the only thing I knew about it was what I remembered about Errol Flynn s 1938 movie which was one of my favourites when I was little I ve watched that film countless of times because I just couldn t get enough of all those duels and castles and evil lords In this retelling there isn t many duels but there re lots of magic and nature and old rites There re old Gods walking the Earth feeling that their time is getting short because a new one is trying to take their placeThere re also marvellous characters some of them who think their believes are supperior and if you don t follow those believes you must be erradicated At first the dialect Rob and his family sed was a bit difficult to follow not being an English native speaker but then I got The Winds of Winter used to it and the reading got smoother I also liked how the characters and the world they are into is shown tos little by little Comece por você unraveling all those layers and the web that tie them together And how we are shown their struggles between want and duty The story buildsp to a major explosion at the end which I was dreading since eary in the book when we met certain character and learn about them So after finishing book 1 I had to go right away to book 2 for REASONS Thank you everyone for the awesome BR Cristina Ele Linda Moony Shile Teal and Xia I received this book as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewI really enjoyed this book The mythology was well developed and felt true to the times and the cultures I liked that it wasn t a case of one group being the good guys and the other being the bad guys but rather a meeting of different people and cultures and values I liked how this book set the stage for what is to come It let me nderstand the people involved and the factors that shaped them into the figures that they become I liked that it wasn t just about them as mythology but them as people People who make mistakes and get things wrong I appreciated the handling of the religious aspects and how everyone s faith was treated with respect and neither religion was treated as all good or all bad I liked the progression of events and I ended buying the next two books before I had finished this one Always a good sign for me 45 stars Unbelievably good I had high expectations and it surpassed themI m going to put an RTC pin in this link to my book 2 review which doesn t have any spoilers even for this first volume But in case you need than my vague ringing endorsement go here It even has pretty pictures D And then READ THIS BOOK yo 72120 Currently FREE via Passionate and intense Fantastic and fantastical A lush.

Oped The author took her time developing each character Our Main MCsRob Robinhood and Gamelyn were two complete opposites It s true what they say about opposites They really do attract From the moment Rob is introduced i fell in love it was instant He is one stubborn character resilient knows what he wants and is not afraid of going after it One who will do anything for those he loves Gaaaahhhh Mi loves Rob So he concentrated on eating And most abjectly did not notice Gamelyn s hands deft and economical with the knife as he trimmed the rind from the cheese and cut pieces of apple to dole out between them Or the way his lashes brushed his cheeks tipped with bronze not nlike the freckles scattered beneath them as he looked down at what he was doing Gamelyn Gamelyn milord Gamelyn Mmmhhhh This guy is complex I wanted to smack him so hard sometimes and hug him at the same time He is battling some inner demons that i wanted him to stop and shake off the demon on his shoulder He brought out the Dr Jekyll and Dr Hyde in me I love him too like i love Jeffrey Dean Morgan Gamelyn had fully intended to head straight to the library after the meal Instead he had come as far as the door out into the courtyard seen the commotion there soldiers gathering gear and getting ready for their escort duty on the morrow and parked his buttocks in the window next to that door to watch Ok You see that girl in the back The one on the cover with long hair Yeah that one her name is MARION She is Rob s sister and she is FREAKING AWESOME WE all LOVE MARION I will not go into details about the other characters because if i did we might be here waiting for Dinosaurs to not become extinct Because i have rants and praises that rivals the book pages Just know they are not one dimension This is not your typical Romance driven story That said the relationship between Gamelyn and Rob develops at a pace that i love so effortlessly they just fit Two opposite humans that just FIT GAAAAAAAAHHH I believe i said something about the writing if not i will repeat it again The writing is incredible and this book shines in the humor department I was loling so hard you want my to won my reading heart give me humor the good kind only and you will have my reading heart you can do with it whatever you want as long as you keep making me laugh ntil i feel like peeing The humor is incredible if you blink you miss it But maybe Gamelyn did like Marion better Which was also irritating and for no good reason Aye well then Will murmured with a wink Simon thinks you re prettier But he s a tunic lifter just like you Sod you Scathelock Long story Long AYE READ THIS BOOK Thank you to Cristina Ele Linda Moony Rosa Teal and Xia for this epic buddy read Let the adventure continue in book 2 and hopefully 3 4 and His god to reinterpret the ancient rites allow Rob to take Gamelyn as lover instead of rival But in the eyes of Gamelyn’s Church sodomy is an abomination and the old pagan magics are an evil that must be vanuished.
