Review: The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest

The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest (A Medieval Fairy Tale, #1)The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest by Melanie Dickerson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For me, The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest was a breezy, adorable female Robin Hood-esque tale. The main characters, Jorgen and Odette, are quickly drawn to one another at a Midsummer festival. Turns out, both are orphans with a heart for helping children. However, Odette has a deep secret. At night, she goes into the forest and poaches deer to feed the poor. It may be wrong, but she's doing it for the right reasons. When she learns Jorgen is the new margrave’s forester, it seems their attraction will never work. Jorgen is dedicated to catching the mysterious poacher.

I really enjoyed Jorgen's character. As an inspirational hero, he was perfect: steadfast and honorable. Not quick to anger.

Odette slightly frustrated me, but mostly because of the plot. For the huntress of Thornbeck Forest, she spent a lot of time in town and at home. As a farm girl trapped in the city, I wanted to "escape" to the forest, and Odette just wasn't in the forest enough. For me, it felt like her point-of-view started after she returned from the forest.

So, in summary, if you want a sweet, inspirational fairy-tale romance, yes! If you want to vicariously be in the forest, book a trip.
