This was a good, short little historical fantasy comedy. The plot is interesting, though those more familiar with the Peloponnesian War and the historical characters may or may not get much out of it. This was my first book by Millar and while his sense of humor was fine, I didn't exactly laugh out loud at anything. Still, I'll probably try something else by him in the future.
This was marketed as Young Adult, but like Abercrombie's Shattered Seas books there's very little of the genre in the writing aside from the protagonists ages and a simpler, more straight-forward story. There is a werewolf, but it's a more elemental, supernatural thing. This angle makes for a very different take on the Robin Hood legend and the characters are all very different as well. That's actually where the book partially fails. The story of Robin Hood is very well known so there is no need to provide a lot of background, but the supernatural parts are hardly explained at all, even after 470 pages. It doesn't quite mesh and the last section of the book, where it finally begins to resemble the story we all know, feels rushed compared to the rest of the book. The first of a trilogy and I may or may not pick up the next book.
