I started this one immediately after finishing the second book in the series, and got stuck in. They are such page turners, and the time travel is so enticing that I read it in just a few hours (not all at once). I wasn’t quite so keen on how many other characters were brought into the picture in this one. It’s fun to see the time travellers interacting with others, but having to convince people about time travel over and over isn’t as much fun.
Having said that, I enjoyed the way that Adam tracked the trio down and his help was very important in keeping the story moving. Quite a lot of the action occurred in the past, whereas previous books have flicked back to the present more often, but it felt like there was far too much story to get through in the forests of Nottingham and Sherwood.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed this one and am keen to keep reading the rest of the series.
