With a twist and a touch of romance, this story was packed with action and humour. Based on the Robin Hood legend, the author questions why men would still be around during the Crusades. It seems more likely that Robin would have been a Robyn (a headstrong and rebellious girl) and she would be reacting to the cruel taxes and stealing by the local tax collectors. This story is fun read and well researched.

Quite a fun and adventurous take on Robin Hood which I quite enjoyed for something different.

Smuggling in wheat for people to eat starts a chain of events for peasant Robyn and the adventure starts from there and took me on a humorous and fast paced adventure.

A great read and aimed at the YA market I think this is a fab read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An adventurous tale from the first page.... 17 September 2016
By Michelle K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
“Robyn and the Hoodettes” by Ebony McKenna is a modern twist on a classic folk story. Robyn, the heroine, is the epitome of independence, strength, and female empowerment. However, she still embraces her feminine side with her love for her male counterpart, Marion. The teasing that flies between Robyn and Marion is enjoyable to read as is watching their relationship develop.

This story is fun, fast paced, and engaging. It reminded me of a storyline that could have been written for the TV series, “Once Upon A Time.” If you love fairy tales set in medieval England mixed with girl power and a little romance then this book should be your next read. I truly enjoyed it and know you will too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Story with a Twist 20 September 2016
By Mrs. Helen Sibbritt - Published on Amazon.com
WOW what a fun story this one was one of my favourite stories with a twist I mean who doesn’t love Robin Hood and his merry men and when Robin becomes Robyn the female and Marion becomes the male then this really called to me and I did very much enjoy it.
This one is filled with lots of adventure and fun as Robyn and her close family and friends’ band together by chance when they are trying to outwit the tax collectors times were tough back then and end up helping the poor with food and some safety and protection against Maudlin the liege Lord and Roger of Doncaster. There is lots of laughter along the way as they become outlaws and as Robyn’s friend, giant Joan and her smash em attitude save Robyn a few times and of course this is a YA romance so to see Marian a wonderful strong blacksmith and the smart Robyn start to notice each other and share a kiss or two along the way as they plan their adventures because they have to have a plan will have you smiling.
MS McKenna has bought the characters to life in a different gender than the original but in such a great way with a lots of action and fun although aimed at the young adult I highly recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good book that will keep you turning the pages and of course Robyn and Marion will make you smile I loved this one thank you Ms McKenna for a fabulous story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ebony McKenna has a way to tell the story that you for sure feel you are right there with them during their adventures. 27 September 2016

Robyn & the Hoodettes by Ebony McKenna
This book from start to finish is one that kept my interest and well lost sleep because I was so intrigued. The story is about Robyn and her group of friends she accumulates
It is a story of men going off to join a crusade, women and children being left behind to fight off the tax collectors that are there to take everything that is valuable. Robyn and her group would dress to be mistaken for boys so that she would not be recognized. Ebony McKenna has a way to tell the story that you for sure feel you are right there with them during their adventures. Robyn has a young friend named Joan who is quite large for her age and she loves to smash.
Robyn does have a slight interest in Marion who is the blacksmith’s son. They do share a kiss or two along the way in planning their adventures.
During their adventure they have been thrown into a dungeon, their village where they lived with parents has been burned, and much more
A fun read and one you will not be disappointed in. Have fun reading the modern day tale of Robin Hood and his merry men with the twist of female Robin Hood.

5.0 out of 5 stars The story is very easy to read 17 September 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In Robyn and the Hoodettes, Ebony McKenna took the familiar story of Robin Hood and gave it an interesting twist. In this version, Robyn is a young lady and she inadvertently becomes an outlaw, stealing from the tax collectors to give back to the peasants. She amasses a band of hoodettes to join in her escapades. Marion, the blacksmith’s son and the voice of reason, helps Robyn come up with plans and supports her throughout their adventures.

The story is very easy to read, it’s fun, adventurous and the romance that blooms between Robyn and Marion is heart-warming. This is a very clever twist on the original legend, well done to Ebony McKenna!
