Book Review: Scarlet
Reviewed by Lauren Kearney, 17
Scarlet is a Robin Hood story with a twist. Will Scarlet is posing as one of Robin Hood’s thieves to avoid the evil Lord Gisbourne. But what nobody knows, other than Robin Hood’s band, is that Scarlet is actually a girl! In a bid to save the people of Nottinghamshire from the crooked sheriff, Scarlett faces danger as Gisbourne draws closer to her. This leaves her with a drastic decision to make...
Whether or not you are a history enthusiast, it is impossible to dislike this story. With its plausible character development, stimulating plots, and overall one-of-a-kind storyline, A.C. Gaughen has produced a novel that will appeal to every reader seeking a wild adventure.
Scarlet is a likeable character, though at times grumpy; it’s hard not to love her. She is strong both mentally and physically, and that’s what makes her so appealing to me. Despite her tough exterior, we see the sensitive side of her come out when she talks about Robin: the man she seems to love and hate at the same time.
I have three words to describe this novel: brilliant, adventure-filled, and un-put-down-able.
