Robyn Loxley—a 12-year-old mixed-race black girl—is back for the final installment of this series, and she has even more at stake than before.
A failed attempt to save her parents has left not only her folks in increasing danger, but some of her friends as well, who were captured in the process. With Gov. Ignomus Crown hotter than ever on her trail, Robyn must learn to trust those around her even when she’s plagued by the constant thought that she is all alone. As the face of the popular rebellion, Robyn will have to learn the true meaning of sacrifice. Will she be willing to give up what matters to her on a personal level for the advancement of Sherwood? It’s imperative that she figure out the clues of the moon lore in order to rescue her parents and be the savior her people believe her to be, a 72-hour high-stakes task that keeps pages flipping furiously. In this series closer, Magoon puts the final pieces of the puzzle together and leaves readers with the answers to mysteries left from the first two books while continuing to develop her alternative science-fiction Sherwood Forest.
A neatly packaged conclusion to this modern and youthful take on the famous Robin Hood legend. (Adventure. 8-12)
