Product Description

In A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund, Julianna is the daughter of a lord, who following her father's death, she has started disguising herself as a young man, living in the woods and helping the poor and starving people. Her harsh uncle rules the land that should be hers and orders that she be captured. Collin has been summoned to Wessex by the lord to protect the nobles from a group of vigilantes who have been attacking traveling parties with bows and arrows, stealing their valuable possessions. But when he comes across the leader of this group, he feels a familiarity to a girl that he knew as a youth. Soon he and Juliana are fighting for what each believes is right, while also fighting the feelings that have begun to develop between them both.

Publisher's 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.

    I loved this story. Jody Hedlund writes with a talent to where you feel as if you fall right into the story, the vivid descriptions of landscape, wonderfully written characters, etc...

    I loved all of the characters, but especially enjoyed Juliana, and how brave and daring she is, also the great sacrafice that Collin made for her displayed great bravery and love in him too!

    This wonderfully written story is definately worth reading!

    About this book:

    The only thing harder than fighting for whats rightis fighting their feelings for each other.

    For three years, the Cloaked Bandit has terrorized Wessex, robbing the nobility by knifepoint and a well-placed arrow. But little dos anyone know, this bandit is in fact Juliana Wessex, the rightful ruler of the land and a girl her tyrannical unclethe current Lord Wessexbelieves was killed along with her father.

    Juliana has become skilled at hiding from Lord Wessex in the forest, using her stolen goods to provide food and shelter to the peasants her uncle has taxed into poverty. But when she robs Collin Goodrich, her red hair betrays her true identity. Lord Collin remembers Juliana from their childhoodand challenges her to stay on his estate for a week in hopes she will leave her thieving ways and become a proper lady once more. Juliana is intrigued by Collin and his charms, but only time will tell if he can overcome her distaste of the nobilityas well as win her heart.

    Early High School Teens- One Star

    Older High School Teens- One Star

    My personal Rating- One Star

    I wasnt a fan of this authors adult books because of the sexual content. I wasnt a fan of the first book of this series due to the fluff plot-line and harsh torture methods. I thought I would try her once more, before I said no more.

    The torture, gore & overall gruesomeness was out of hand. Never mind all the kisses, touches & desires, the torture scenes alone would have been enough for a one-star rating.

    But this book had all those kisses, touches & desires.

    You know what really got me though? Weve got the instant love, okay, no shock, whatever, I can deal. But, Collin. Collin says he loves Juliana. If you love her, Collin, why didnt marriage come to your mind? Youre totally enjoying kissing & touching her, but you dont even think about marrying her until her protector tells you If you want her, then youll make her your wife first. I swear, its like a light bulb went off in Collins head.

    So, Collin. Not my favorite.

    Juliana. I wanted to like her at first. I had a hard time though. At one point, shes over here holding a knife to Collins throat and then check him out at the same time! (In semi-detailed muscle and tight pants noticing, might I add.)

    Both of them were just too good at what they did. They did everything pretty well and it always impressed the other. (Then, in Collins case, he basically bragged about how much better he was at shooting, tracking, etc. than someone else.) They both just came across as flat to me. They would show off how good they were at something, but then there would be a coincidental flaw in their personalities that felt like it was added as an afterthought.

    The torture and details of all the methods was just awful. Honestly, it wasnt needed. You can write about something without getting fully into the details. Why does the author find it so fascinating to include such details?

    So, Im disappointed. But Im not shocked.

    *BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.

    Theres only a small number compared to the other genres I normally read of YA novels that Ive had the pleasure of reading, but if I wasnt already a newbie fan of the genre, Jody Hedlunds amazing Young Adult series would have certainly done the trick. If you were to ask why, my best and only answer would be that you must read it for yourself; its completely self-explanatory!😉

    When I read the prequel and the first book in the series (The Vow, and An Uncertain Choice), I completely LOVED it! I couldnt wait to read more about the two knights first mentioned in An Uncertain Choice, and was excited when I found out that the third novel in the series would further expand on Collins story, and would feature a Robin Hood inspired heroine.

    A novel wonderfully crafted, A Daring Sacrifice was everything that I hoped it would be adventurous, delightful, and amazing. I loved how this novel embedded the compelling message of selfless sacrifice in a way that pulled at the heartstrings. And to put the icing on the cake, the leading characters were perfect for the story. They gave this novel a special something that I more than enjoyed reading.

    From its stunning characters, to its awesome Robin Hood-ish subplot, A Daring Sacrifice is nothing short of fantastic. And even though this novel can rightfully hold its place as a stand-alone, I still recommend reading the first book in the series, as well as the novella, just for a richer reading experience. Its worth it!

    This review was written for A Daring Sacrifice.
    First of all, isn't that a lovely cover? That caught my interest right off. Then there was the fact that is is a remake of the classic Robin Hood story. Very cool. It lives up to both the greatness of the original tale and the cover, I'm pleased to say!

    Julianna is a wonderful heroine. She's not perfect but you are definitely rooting for her right from the get-go. She is daring and fearless as a huntress and bandit providing for her band of people hiding in the forest but she's not without her longings and insecurities. As a book geared to a YA audience I wasn't sure if I would find this up to the author's writing level from previous books (I haven't read the first in the series yet, but I will!) but I didn't find it was simplified or more written differently as sometimes can be the case. In fact, I would recommend this book to an older teen and up audience as there is somewhat gory torture details, true to the time, but maybe not appropriate for tweens/young teens, and also because of the amount of romance. That could have been cut back just a little. It manages not to get in the way of the action, which starts on page one and continues all the way through. The banter between Julianna and Collin is fun and lightens up the storyline. Great story, I highly recommend it!

    I received this book from Zondervan and BookLook for the purpose of an honest review. My opinion is my own.

    This review was written for A Daring Sacrifice.
    I didn't realize at first that "A Daring Sacrifice" is the "sequel" to "An Uncertain Choice" as there is no series name given. It could be read on it's own, but it would be a little clearer what they were talking about with the "contest" from "An Uncertain Choice" if you read them in order. I didn't really pay much attention to Collin in the first book as he wasn't the hero that I was rooting for to win the contest.

    "A Daring Sacrifice" is a teen romance but I enjoyed it. At first, I was wondering if it would be too similar to Melanie Dickerson's "Huntress of Thornbeck Forest", but other than the heroines both being "Robin Hood" characters who provide for a band of poor people, they each had their own storylines, which was nice. With this story being geared for teens, the romance isn't as deep as some books, but I didn't find it childish, either. I was originally going to let my daughters read this, but there were two phrases in the book that changed my mind. They were: "In fact, if I'd been someone more sinister-a lusty man without any regard for her womanhood-what would she have done tonight?" and "My blood ran cold at the thought of what Lord Wessex might do to her, of the torturous ways he'd violate her." At 11 and 10, they wouldn't understand these and I don't think they need to know what they are talking about. I will wait until they are older to let them read it. There are some mentions of torture, but not really too graphic. Unless the reader is already familiar with what being drawn and quartered is, it wouldn't mean much to them. There are a few mentions of bloody or mutilated bodies, but I didn't really find them overly repulsive. I liked how the parts of the book for Collin were a different font than the sections for Juliana. It made it easier to follow who was talking since the book was all in the first person point of view.

    I received a free copy of this book from the publisher through their zblogsquad program in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and no other compensation was received.
