    "I wanted a Robin Hood story with a female fulfilling the lead character role. This book was exactly that and it was well written to boot. This book takes Robin Hood and turns it on its head with a female lead and for a young adult audience. It was unique, captivating and well worth the time to read it."

    "This book reinvents the tale of Robin Hood with a female spy. Posing as a male, Scarlet is brilliant and a different look at this long ago tale. The book was interesting throughout and believable. A very well conceived idea brought forth in this book."

    "I took up archery because of the old stories of the fabled Robin Hood. What I never have gotten to experience, is the telling of the Robin Hood story with a female protagonist. With A Daring Sacrifice, I was treated to a wonderful story that led me to believe that the magic of Robin Hood could truly have come from a woman. "

    "This story is a great twist to the original Robin Hood story. It depicts a strong woman fighting for what is right, rather than the typical man saving a woman fairy tale."

    "This book is one of the classics or, at least, it should be. a wonderfully whimsical tale that continues the legacy of Sherwood that we've all become familiar with. A fantastic series, aimed at young teens, that weaves a powerful and relatable tale of growing up and coming into your own, despite considerable hardship. I'd recommend this to anyone who has a teen interested in fantasy/medieval stories as well as any adults who don't mind reading books aimed at a younger crowd - Nancy Springer has woven a tale that will make sure you don't regret giving this series a chance."
