Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 2/6/2014

    " Well, it has been a while since I read this series, but I recall being terribly fond of them. With the exception of chapter 2, this book was good! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 2/5/2014

    " A nice short read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bridget | 1/18/2014

    " A super quick read with a plucky heroine (Ha. Plucky. But she is!). I was hoping for something a bit more like the Enola Holmes series, which I absolutely adore. I think the difference for me was in how I connected with the supporting cast of characters, and while I loved Ty, I didn't feel much for any of the humans other than Rowan. I'll probably give the rest of the series a try since it was such a speedy read, and I'd definitely recommend it to kids, it's just not my favorite from Springer. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 darkest-blonde08 | 1/16/2014

    " ehh it was an interesting read. not my fave, but not on the hated list either. writing was ok, storyline interesting, characters- somewhat predictable. on a scale of 1 - 10, i'd give it a 4. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 1/15/2014

    " Good story. I look forward to reading the following books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Swen Cilati | 1/13/2014

    " pretty good..reccomend it mostly to people that like a good fictitious story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 1/5/2014

    " Rosemary (Ro, Rowan) wants to see if the fables are true about her father, Robin Hood. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Horace Mann Family Reading Challenge | 11/28/2013

    " Rowan is a healer grand daughter of the Alpha spirits of the forst. S.S. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenzie | 11/24/2013

    " i liked this book. it is the first book. i liked it cuz it's about a girl my age who is trying to get through her trials and i could sort of relate some things between me and the book. i know that sounds pretty odd but it did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathyred | 11/10/2013

    " audiobook-Nice story of the daughter of Robin Hood as she figures out her place in the world and her relationship w/ her father. Why did he never acknowledge her? Gentle adventure "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 10/24/2013

    " I have liked this author before... these are cute books. They are very quick reads. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Diane | 8/8/2013

    " I like the wolf-dog, but in the end didn't finish it. It involves elves or spirits and I didn't care for that part of the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 6/28/2013

    " This story was very slow-moving and didn't have the charm and humor that the Enola Holmes series does. Even though it was just an OK audio, I finished it. But, if I was reading the book, I probably wouldn't have. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 benebean | 5/7/2013

    " part of the ending lost it 1/4 of a star, but the dog got it an extra 1/2 star. So I guess that makes it 3.25 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tori | 4/16/2013

    " A pretty good book; I've always loved Robin Hood, so this was definitely the book for me. I liked it more when I was younger, but I still like it now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenna | 10/23/2012

    " This was a good book. I really like this author too. Robin Hood (ya that guy who 'stole from the rich to give to the poor) has a daughter, her name is Rowan. It's about her life after her mother (not maid marrian) died and their farm was burnted to the ground. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Siera | 6/18/2012

    " This was a good book though it didn't really intrigue me enough to absolutely need to read the second one. I was interested in the take on the famous Robin Hood's daughter ... though not Miriam's. That was rather odd, but a good twist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff Crosby | 4/30/2012

    " Pleasant juvenile about Robin Hood's daughter. Okay start to a five book series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 2/22/2012

    " Tightly written without any extraneous verbage/plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trisha | 2/11/2012

    " Cute but couldn't hold my interest well. Not much of a story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassondra | 2/10/2012

    " The change in Ros attitude is tremendous. And as always I enjoyed the twist on a classic "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia | 8/30/2011

    " Not as good as the Enola Holmes books. Aimed at a younger audience. This was the audio version and the narrator was passable but seemed inexperienced. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kiri Liz | 8/4/2011

    " Interesting twist to the classic Robin Hood tale, but the author wove elements and themes that I didn't care for into the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Kae | 4/3/2011

    " Charming and unique. It was a pleasure to read, with a very likable main character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 1/17/2011

    " Tightly written without any extraneous verbage/plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Raz | 1/4/2011

    " ehh it was an interesting read. not my fave, but not on the hated list either. writing was ok, storyline interesting, characters- somewhat predictable. on a scale of 1 - 10, i'd give it a 4. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Margaret | 9/7/2010

    " This has a pretty slow start, and I almost put it down, but I actually ended up really liking it. What starts out as a seemingly predictable story takes an unexpected turn that really makes the main character grow into her own person. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 8/19/2010

    " I love the idea of taking a great setting like that of Sherwood Forest, & giving it a strong female lead character, especially one as likable as Ro. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elzbeth | 5/20/2010

    " First book I ever read. Great book full of adventure. Rosemary's mother dies, and she must masquerade as a boy to find her father: Robin Hood. The other books in the series are great too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 5/6/2010

    " Fun, short read about the daughter of Robin Hood. Creative story. Rated PG for violence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 4/21/2010

    " A beautifully written childhood spin off of the old Robin Hood tale, told from a slightly different angle, the man's daughter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 3/17/2010

    " This was a good twist to the story of Robin Hood... he's got a daughter. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Megan | 2/7/2010

    " My expectations weren't that high when I started this book. I was hoping for a cheesy little story, and it was cheesy, but just really dull. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeff | 1/29/2010

    " Pleasant juvenile about Robin Hood's daughter. Okay start to a five book series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 12/27/2009

    " I really love Robin Hood, and I love Enola Holmes, so I was very excited for this series about Robin Hood's daughter by the author of Enola Holmes. And it's a pretty fun series. It's not as good as Enola Holmes, but I'm still eager to read the rest of the series. "
