A Daring Sacrifice Paperback by Jody Hedlund

Book Description: In a reverse twist on the Robin Hood story, a young medieval maiden stands up for the rights of the mistreated, stealing from the rich to give to the poor. All the while, she fights against her cruel uncle who has taken over the land that is rightfully hers. Forced to live in the woods and hide with the poor people she's grown to love, she works to save and protect them, but she never anticipates falling in love with the wealthy knight who represents all she's come to despise.

My Thoughts:  I've seen novels penned by Jody Hedlund but I have never read one of them.  So, when I saw this interesting book I knew it was time to read one of Jody's novels.
Daring Sacrifice is somewhat like Robin Hood's story...but yet, unlike his story.  Also, I found out after receiving this book that there is a book before this one titled, An Uncertain Choice.  Since I haven't read An Uncertain Choice I read A Daring Sacrifice as a stand alone read.
This was an interesting novel.  
Juliana has some amazing archery talents for such a young woman.  And she and Collin have quite a fast paced romance.  Oh, and my favorite, the peasants live underground.  Living in the forest and then living underground was quite a painted picture. 
Juliana has the "odds" stacked against her but she is fearless and brave and well, there's Collin. Collin is quite a help.
This is an action packed book.  Not overly done but enough so that the reader is quickly turning the pages.
Well written with a few surprises sprinkled in for added reading pleasure.
