When his dad is framed for a robbery. Robin and his brother Little John are hounded out of Locksley and must learn to survive in the Sherwood forest, stretching three hundred kilometres and sheltering the free spirits and outlaws. But Robin is determined to do more than survive. Small, fast and deadly with a bow, he hatches his inimitable tech skills and strike a blow against Gisborne and Sheriff Marjorie.


Robin Hood is a story of survival living in an outlaw's town. After Robin's dad been framed for a robbery, Robin and his brother, Little John has to make a run out of Locksley town to Sherwood forest where the survival lives begin. However, Robin and Little John get separated. Living in Sherwood forest, Robin got to meet many other people who are willingly to help him and give him shelter also it is where she meets Marion.

It's a fast pace story that got us excited the more I turn the pages. The friendship between Robin and Marion is amazing. I like how they get connected by friendship easily. No awkwardness happened between them. Marion is there to help him and get to learn archery with Robin. Together they plotting something for their survival. 

Honestly, I was expecting something more. I mean, more action especially knowing Robin's terrific archery skill but I guess it is saved for the next adventure? I really hope that. The unexpected plot twist rolling up makes it even more exciting. 

Overall, it was a simple straight forward story also exciting adventure following Robin's mission to rescue his dad. I thought this will be a stand-alone but it is not so, I definitely looking forward to the next in the series which will be more action-packed adventure in them. 

If you are interested in reading, a coll young boy who expert in archery skills, an expert in hacking and a brave young boy who has to survives in order to live, you should pick this book up.
