The Treason of Robyn Hood by D. Lieber is an urban fantasy novel set in early 1940s America during World War II. Orphaned at the tender age of four, Robyn Loxley grows up to be a tenacious young woman. Robyn, along with her elder sister Marian, was brought up and raised by the Lacklands, a powerful family who controlled most businesses in Midshire. Robyn finds out via Detective Alaric Nottingham that the Lacklands have their hands deep into criminal activities, and their corrupt practices are directly responsible for the dire living conditions of the inhabitants of the shantytown of Sherwood. Robyn must now choose between her foster family and her ideals as she makes a daring rescue plan for the Japanese Americans detained in a concentration camp owned by the Lacklands.
The Treason of Robyn Hood is a well-written rendition of the famous legendary tale of Robin Hood. Author D. Lieber deftly captures the moral elements from the story of the mischievous robber and crafts them in a refreshing fashion in a unique setting. The Treason of Robyn Hood has suspense, drama, humor, romance, and action, all jam-packed in a tightly paced novel full of intrigue. Lieber masterfully showcases the parallels between the detainment of Japanese Americans during World War II with the plight of immigrants detained in concentration camps in contemporary America. Despite the exploration of some serious issues, The Treason of Robyn Hood is primarily a fun-filled adventure novel. I enjoyed it immensely and will highly recommend it to fans of fantasy and adventure.
