When I first heard that there was going to be a magical Robin Hood story that picked up years after the heyday of the Merry Men, and focused on Maid Marian as a hedgewitch, I was pretty much in shock, because you could not find a more perfect concept for me. I’m pleased to say that Brightfall was actually even better than I imagined, and has become a firm favourite I think I’ll return to many times over the years.
I am always on the look out for fantasy with a sense of humour – not necessarily funny or satirical, but something light-hearted and entertaining, rather than depressing and stodgy. Grimdark is really not my cup of tea. So I was incredibly excited to hear about Lord of Secrets, which was described as light, funny, and heartwarming in its press release – and boy did it deliver that and so much more!
