‘Shadows of Sherwood’ review: A modern Robin Hood story

Credit: Bloomsbury Press

I read the book “Shadows of Sherwood,” by Kekla Magoon (Bloomsbury). Robyn Loxley is 12 when her parents are kidnapped and she is forced to fend for herself in a corrupt world. Her home Nott City is being controlled by a cruel governor going by the name of Ignomus Crown. He is trying to take Nott City for himself. Robyn makes it top priority to find out where her parents have been taken or if they are even alive. Soon after Robyn escapes Crown’s reach, she realizes her parents were a part of something much larger that she was unexpectedly born into. Along the way Robyn makes new friends that help her try to take down Crown and restore peace in Nott City.
