Will he live as an animal or a human? Ever since his father was caught in a man-trap between the wilds of Sherwood Forest and the domain of the Sheriff of Nottingham, Rook has resisted the tugs on his heart that would recall that horror or tie him to Rowan, Robin, or any of the forest band. Now, as the newest victim of such a fate turns out to be the son of the sheriff himself, Rook has situations thrust upon him that force him to confront his feelings. Emily Gray moves this fast-paced story along smartly. There’s not a slack moment as Rook travels from his lair to the encampments of Rowan, wrestles with his desire to leave the boy to die, agonizes over the reality of a boy unwanted by his father, and contemplates creature comforts. While Rook takes center stage, Gray gives personality to each merry man and woman of olde England. A.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
