A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund

In a reverse twist on the Robin Hood story, a young medieval maiden stands up for the rights of the mistreated, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. All the while, she fights against her cruel uncle who has taken over the land that is rightfully hers. Forced to live in the woods and hide with the poor people she's grown to love, she works to save and protect them, but she never anticipates falling in love with the wealthy knight who represents all she's come to despise. @goodreads 



First off I love the cover of this book, I think it's so beautiful and it continues onto the back of the book.


I loved the idea of Juliana being a female version of Robin Hood.

Her father was killed and everyone thought she was as well and her cousin took over her castle and lands. Juliana went into hiding with a group of people and they lived in the forest for 3 years. They stole from the rich and gave to the poor. :-) She's really awesome with a bow and arrow!


I loved the characters of Bulldog and Thatch, they were a father and son that Juliana stayed in the forest with and did what they had to do. There is some evilness in the book done to Thatch, but thankfully it all worked out.

One day Juliana stole from Lord Collin. As her and Thatch were leaving, Collin figured out who she was and he pursued her at one point.

Needless to say, Collin fell in love with Juliana and took her to his castle.


They did fall in love, Juliana got Collin to be an even better person than he was and they fought to get what was rightfully hers. So in the end it all worked out, but it's left open for another book.

*I would like to thank HarperCollinsPublishers and BookLookBloggers for a print copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.*
