A Daring Sacrifice

This book review is for the novel "A Daring Sacrifice" by Jody Hedlund.

This book appears to have been modeled more off of Robin Hood but with a female protagonist instead of male.


Lady Juliana has been displaced as the rightful heir of her region and has been forced to hide in the woods to protect her true identity. She tries her best to take care of peasants that helped her dad stage an uprising against the rather unsavory Uncle that forcibly took over their lands.

A meeting with a childhood acquaintance just might change everything.


I will say that I thought some of the descriptions of torture in this book were not appropriate or necessary for young adult readers or really anyone honestly. It was gruesome in my opinion. With those parts left out this would have been really good but I cannot recommend it because of those scenes. Besides my disagreement with those scenes the book itself was well written and I have enjoyed other things that I have read by Jody Hedlund.
