Dauntless by Dina Sleiman

Oh my word, you guys, this book was incredible!!!

Lady Merry Ellison is an outlaw and a fugitive, wanted by the king for her father’s treachery. One of the few survivors of her village–along with a group of children–she is determined to keep them safe all costs, even if that includes thievery such as the great Robin of the Hoyde is known.

Called the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest, her little band survive unnoticed until someone from her past, Timothy Grey, seeks them out for reward.

Will Timothy turn them in once he knows who the “ghosts” truly are? Will she ever receive pardon from the king, or does she even want to? Find out in this epic adventure by Dina Sleiman.

And when I say epic, I do mean epic. I could not put this stinkin’ book down. Nor have I ever felt such distress over the plight of a fictional character before.

Her characters are exquisite, her historical details sheer perfection–they shine so much light on the Robin Hood legends!–and the ending so unexpected and satisfactory, I was literally cheering. Out loud. It’s a good thing my husband is used to me by now.

Dina Sleiman just may go on my list of “must read everything this girl has written.” At least I know book two, whenever that comes out, is on my “must read” list.

When I say read this book, I mean get it this instant and read it right away!

It is excellent!

In Him,




Genres: Historical Fiction, Legend
I am in love with this book. The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest pillage and plunder with none the wiser to their identity, disappearing like wisps of wind. This group of children are outlaws, surviving much like Robin of the Hoyde, longing for the day they can return to a normal life under a fair and just ruler. If you love Robin Hood legends and history, you will love this book! I want to read it again already! So, so good.

About the Book

Where Legend and History Collide,
One Young Woman Will Fight for the Innocent

Born a baron’s daughter, Lady Merry Ellison is now an enemy of the throne after her father’s failed assassination attempt upon the king. Bold and uniquely skilled, she is willing to go to any lengths to protect the orphaned children of her former village–a group that becomes known as “The Ghosts of Farthingale Forest.” Merry finds her charge more difficult as their growing notoriety brings increasing trouble their way.

Timothy Grey, ninth child of the Baron of Greyham, longs to perform some feat so legendary that he will rise from obscurity and earn a title of his own. When the Ghosts of Farthingale Forest are spotted in Wyndeshire, where he serves as assistant to the local earl, he might have found his chance. But when he comes face-to-face with the leader of the thieves, he’s forced to reexamine everything he’s known.

3 Thoughts on “Dauntless by Dina Sleiman

  1. Just stumbled on this very wonderful and enthusiastic review. I noticed you’re a dancer, which just means you DEFINITELY have to read everything I’ve written, since my other three books all involve dance! I’m a dancer too, no wonder the instant affinity :)

  2. Oh, Dina, thank you so much for reading this review! And commenting! You quite possibly made my year!!! :) I’ve read Love in Three-Quarter Time (because Dauntless was so freaking good) and adored it. Now that I know you have more books, I’ll have to read those too! Thanks so much! :) Have a blessed and marvelous day!
