As a big fan of retellings when I heard about Woods of Silver and Light I was really curious and had to sign up for the tour hosted by TBR and Beyond Tours. I’ve never read Robin Hood, but I’ve seen a few movies and it’s definitely an interesting story. Woods of Silver and Light is now out in the world, so let’s take a look at what it’s all about.
Woods of Silver and Light (Storyteller’s Series #2) by Victoria McCombs
Genre: Young Adult Fantasy/Retelling
Publishing Date: February 9, 2021
Ronin’s son is dead, and Maid Marion is gone. But a sorceress banished to the Woods can bring his son back if he and his Silver Raiders are willing to do something for her first. She finds there’s nothing Ronin Hood won’t do for his son…
Anika finds herself drawn to the mystery of the Woods and the thieves who live within, but the cost of associating with the Silver Raiders becomes higher than she’s willing to pay. The darkness of the Woods seeps into the Raider’s hearts, blurring the lines between hero and villain, until Anika’s fight for freedom turns into a fight to survive the magic of the trees that should have never been awoken.
This isn’t the tale of Robin Hood you remember.

About the Author
Some of the things I love most in this world are peppermint hot chocolate, peanut butter ice cream, golﬁng dates, Jesus, and game nights with family. And of course, books.
Fairytales were my ﬁrst love. I became obsessed with the idea that if one was brave enough, they could defeat dragons, and that true love was real. I met my true love in college, and together we raise our two boys. I have my dad to thank for teaching me to love writing, and my mom to thank for allowing us to keep a wall of medieval weapons in the house, which curated my love for that time period.
My dream is to write vivid worlds and charming characters that will leave an imprint on my reader’s hearts, the way that so many books have done for me.
Retellings are a lot of fun and Robin Hood isn’t a story I see get a lot retellings, so I’m definitely curious. Are you a fan of retellings? What are some of your favorites? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
