    The Review

    Robin Hood, a story that has captured imaginations for generations. The whole idea of righting a wrong to return favor to the people under tyrannical rule is both intriguing and entertaining. This isn’t the Robin Hood you remember though. It’s set in an ambiguous time which gives it some leeway to play with the timeline. Here, Robin of Loxley is a lord of his manor, when drafted by the Sheriff of Nottingham to fight in the war, he must leave everything and everyone behind. When a tragedy occurs in the great war, those on each side will have to choose sides. This unlikely scenario will bond 2 individuals in a way that neither could have fathomed… only they don’t know it yet. Years go by… Upon returning home, Robin will be faced with losing everything that he had known. With the help of a close friend, he will soon find a new reason to fight. This new plan will put everyone and everything in jeopardy. Does the end justify the means? This story has the opportunity to become one of the most powerful Robin Hood stories to date as it reaches out and grabs you in ways you don’t expect. Even with that though it addresses many issues that are both relevant to the movie as well as the modern-day. In doing so it will either leave you either enthralled or enraged! It also challenges many ideas that could upset those who have strong religious leanings. This definitely isn’t for everyone, but for those looking for an adventure, this will not disappoint.
