A beautiful synthesis of Robin Hood legends. --Marion Zimmer Bradley

With her king a captive and her coffers drained, England is left in turmoil during the Crusades. After the death of her father in the Holy Land, Lady Marian of Ravenskeep finds herself alone--and at the mercy of men vying for her lands and her beauty. Thrust into games of political intrigue, the sheltered knight's daughter soon learns to trust no one. . .

Afforded a hero's homecoming, Sir Robert of Locksley returns from the Crusades a shattered man. In a country he barely recognizes, one torn apart by treachery and betrayal, he finds in Marian a kindred soul. Their quest for justice will take them into the depths of Sherwood Forest, where the dream of a new England will be born. . .

"An imaginative and riveting novel, impossible to put down." --Booklist

"Robinson expertly evokes the sensations and frustrations of medieval life." --Kirkus

"A diverting, delightful book." --Publishers Weekly

About the Author

Since 1984, Jennifer Roberson has published 20 solo novels, among them 13 bestselling fantasy novels: the 8-volume Chronicles of the Cheysuli, about a race of shapechangers and a divine prophecy; and the 4-volume Sword-Dancer saga, which she describes as "Conan the Barbarian meets Gloria Steinem." Other novels include 3 mainstream historicals from Kensington: Lady of the Forest, an award-winning reinterpretation of the Robin Hood story emphasizing Marian's role in how the legend came to be; a sequel, Lady of Sherwood, continuing the adventures of Robin and Marian; and Lady of the Glen, the documented story of seventeenth-century Scotland's Massacre of Glencoe, similar in theme to the films Rob Roy and Braveheart. She has also written The Golden Key, a DAW Books fantasy collaboration with Melanie Rawn and Kate Elliott, which was nominated for the World Fantasy Award in 1997. Jennifer has a bachelor of science in journalism from Northern Arizona University, with an extended major in British history. She spent her final semester in England at the University of London, which enabled her to do in-depth research at museums, great homes, and cathedrals of England, as well as in Scotland's Edinburgh, Loch Ness, and Glencoe. Prior to becoming a full-time writer in 1985, she was employed as an investigative reporter for a morning daily and as an advertising copywriter for a major marketing company. Jennifer grew up in Arizona and used to compete in amateur rodeos. Her primary hobby now is the breeding, training, and exhibition of Cardigan Welsh corgis and Labrador retrievers in the conformation, obedience, and agility rings of AKC dog shows and trials. She was the Cardigan Welsh corgi breed columnist for the AKC Gazette for six years and is currently on the board of directors of the Cardigan Welsh Corgi Club of America. She lives near Phoenix with (currently) six dogs and two cats.
