About Dominion

A kingdom under assault.

A conspiracy born of anarchy.

A hero standing against tyranny.

Falsely convicted of a shocking crime, Robin Fitzooth, the Earl of Huntingdon, finds refuge in Sherwood Forest and becomes Robin Hood. Leading a band of men against the injustices of a malevolent sheriff and his henchmen, Robin begins to unravel a web of treachery threatening the English royal family.

As shadowy forces gather to destroy the future of a nation, Robin faces deceit, betrayal, and the ravages of war as he defends his king, his country, his people, and the woman he loves from a conspiracy so diabolical, so unexpected, that the course of history hangs in the balance.

From the mists of an ancient woodland, to lavish royal courts teeming with intrigue, to the exotic shores of the Holy Land – Robin Hood leads the fight in a battle between good and evil, justice and tyranny, the future and the past.

Part one of an exciting three-part retelling of the Robin Hood legend!

My Review

Robin Hood’s Dawn (The Robin Hood Trilogy #1) was not what I figure it was gonna be. I figure it would be the same old storyline that has been told several times before. To my surprise Olivia Longueville & J.C. Plummer changed the entire story line while still remaining true to the story. Olivia Longueville & J.C. Plummer has shifted things & moved the order around so much that it seems like an entire new story while at the same time remains true o the story just not the normal story line. There are all the “bad” & “good” characters in the story in their correct places but things have been moved around & has made it more interesting in my opinion.

If you want to read the Robin Hood Story but completely different in a good way that will make you want to read the second & third book in the series then you need to read this book.

I received this book from Net Galley for this review.

About Dominion

Molly grew up hearing the tales of Haviland Stout, her ancestor who discovered the dangerous magical spirits that inhabit the far corners of the world. Now, on the edge of the New World, in the British Dominion of Terra Nova, Molly and her family collect spirits aboard their airship, the Legerdemain.

But when Molly captures a spirit that can speak and claims to have been Haviland’s friend, her entire life is upended. What if everything she knows about the spirits, and her own history, is a lie? In her hunt for the truth, Molly will have to challenge the most powerful company in Terra Nova and find the courage to reshape her world.

My Review

Ok, what got me wanting to read the book was the description. I love spirit, ghost, etc stories. I choose it before I even realized it was a children’s book. I should have realized it once I downloaded the book, but surprisingly the story line kept me interested & I read the book in two nights. I was completely drawn into the main character of the books & felt each of her feelings that she felt.

I do recommend this book if you want a bit of light reading but that is only because it is rated as a children’s book. Do not let the classification as children’s reading put you off. It is a good book & I want to read the next in the series.
