The eagerly-awaited conclusion to the Scarlet trilogy delivers another action-packed and romance-filled adventure.
Scarlet has captured the hearts of readers as well as the heart of Robin Hood, and after ceaseless obstacles and countless threats, readers will finally find out the fate of the Lady Thief.
Imprisoned by Prince John for months, Scarlet finds herself a long way from Nottinghamshire. After a daring escape from the Prince’s clutches, she learns that King Richard’s life is in jeopardy, and Eleanor of Aquitaine demands a service Scarlet can’t refuse: spy for her and help bring Richard home safe. But fate—and her heart—won’t allow her to stay away from Nottinghamshire for long, and together, Scarlet and Rob must stop Prince John from going through with his dark plans for England. They can not rest until he’s stopped, but will their love be enough to save them once and for all?
This book was released in May and as soon it was on order at the library, we were first on the wait list. And then we waited, and waited, and waited… and finally last month it was available! My daughter and I gobbled it up like hotcakes. This final book in the Scarlet series was good, but in the end, I felt it fell a little short when compared to its predecessors. However, I did love the book. Gaughen does a fabulous job with the characters. They are so well rounded… and Prince John — he’s so EVIL! As it seems with many trilogies, I was sad for the story to be over… in fact, it seemed like it ended rather abruptly – wait? That’s all? Sigh. All in all, a fun series that I would recommend to all.
4 of 5 stars.
