Weekend Blog Hops - 26 July 2019

It's the weekend once more. That means it's time for my book-blogger hopping. 

Do you always have a book with you?
No. I am not someone who can read in a moving vehicle. It makes me queasy. Therefore I don't carry books to read on the bus on the way to work etc. I do all my reading at home. Naturally in the house there are always books nearby! :)
Opening sentence:
In the middle of the greenwood stood an oak, broad as it was tall, with roots the Fae believed wrapped around the heart of the world.


From page 56:
I rubbed my eyes, not at all surprised to find my face damp. The Fae didn't cry, not that I'd ever heard tell, but Bert didn't say a word.
My Current Read 
Jaime Lee Moyer

Someone is murdering the Merry Men . . .
It's been a mostly quiet life since Robin Hood put aside his pregnant wife Marian, turned his back on his Merry Men and his former life and retreated to a monastery to repent his sins . . . although no one knows what was so heinous he would leave behind Sherwood Forest and those he loved most.

But when friends from their outlaw days start dying, Father Tuck, now the Abbott of St Mary's, suspects a curse and begs Marian to use her magic to break it. A grieving Marian must bargain for protection for her children before she sets out with a soldier who's lost his faith, a trickster Fey lord, and a sullen Robin Hood, angry at being drawn back into the real world.

It's not long before Marian finds herself enmeshed in a maze of secrets and betrayals, tangled relationships and a vicious struggle for the Fey throne.

And if she can't find and stop the spell-caster, no protection in Sherwood Forest will be enough to save her children.

A wonderful re-imagining of Robin Hood and Maid Marian, perfect for fans of Katherine Arden, Naomi Novik and Christina Henry.

  3. Sounds like a good book! I love more in-depth fiction of stories we think we know.
