Summary from Goodreads: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?
Wow, this was an amazing ending to the trilogy. I am truly struggling to write this review, because I know whatever I write will not do it justice.
The book starts out dark and gloomy, and I know it seems impossible but this book was more intense than the last. I was captivated the entire time I was reading this book. Despite her circumstances, Scarlet remains true to herself, and I believe that this book brings her to her full development as a fierce, strong, brave, young woman. Robin also grows and becomes a more formidable young man and leader. The adventure in this book is thrilling. The historical elements come into play a little more in this book than in the previous books, but again it supplemental information that supports and complements the story. Everything comes together and the ending makes sense. It was truly and epic tale and I think my favorite retelling.
