"The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest" by Melanie Dickerson

A female Robin Hood who is also a teacher. A man whose job is to hunt down and stop poachers however he needs to. Jorgen and Odette, two people drawn together, yet inevitably pushed apart. Who will win the battle?

Odette loves the people in her village. She teaches the children, she knows their needs. So by night, she hunts. The problem is that she hunts on the margrave's land and that is against the law. Enter Jorgen, a man who really hates poachers because one killed the man who raised him, the man who had his job before him. Little do these two know that they are on opposite sides of the law when they meet at a community festival. Little does Odette know that the children she hunts for are not getting the meat. What will happen when the black market is exposed? What will happen when Jorgen and Odette realize who the other is? This wonderful story will pull you in until you know the answers to all your questions.

I really enjoyed this book. It was familiar, yet different; a fairy-tale with a twist. I found myself feeling all kinds of emotions as I read - excitement, happiness, anger, and hope. If you enjoy books that are purely fiction and fun with a twist of adventure and danger, this book is for you. I received my review copy from the Book Sneeze program in exchange for an honest review.
