In fact, if you had told me this is how it all would end back when I was reading Hood, I probably wouldn't have believed you. I probably would have laughed. Because that book was so dark, I almost quit reading it halfway through and gave up on the series even though I had probably a dozen friends, on and off the internet, telling me the series was awesome.
Yeah, my friends were totally right. The ending? SO good. I was pleased.
SPOILER ALERT: Bran does not die. I was just assuming this was going to be one where the Robin Hood character dies, but nope, not so. YAY! I actually have this rule where I don't read about Robin Hood dying because if I didn't read it, it didn't happen, and I can happily live in a world where Robin Hood still lives. So I was fully prepared to quit reading this book before the last chapter if it became obvious Bran was going to die. But he didn't. So I got to read the whole thing. END SPOILER ALERT.
Anyway. This series still isn't my favorite Robin Hood retelling, but I did enjoy it. Yay! It was nifty having this book focus a lot on Friar Tuck, because I've always liked him a lot in basically every version of Robin Hood I've seen or read that includes him.
If This was a Movie, I Would Rate It: PG-13 for a lot of violence and a little bad language.
