Carrie Vaughn follows up The Ghosts of Sherwood with the charming, fast-paced The Heirs of Locksley, continuing the story of Robin Hood's children.

"We will hold an archery contest. A simple affair, all in fun, on the tournament grounds. Tomorrow. We will see you there."

The latest civil war in England has come and gone, King John is dead, and the nobility of England gathers to see the coronation of his son, thirteen year old King Henry III.

The new king is at the center of political rivalries and power struggles, but John of Locksley—son of the legendary Robin Hood and Lady Marian—only sees a lonely boy in need of friends. John and his sisters succeed in befriending Henry, while also inadvertently uncovering a political plot, saving a man's life, and carrying out daring escapes.

All in a day's work for the Locksley children...

Praise for The Heirs of Locksley

"The story is fast-paced and fun, with much of the pleasure lying in the Vaughn’s charming and distinct characterizations of the Locksley siblings. Most impressive is Vaughn’s handling of the nonverbal Eleanor, who never feels forgotten or left out in scenes. Readers won’t have to know much about the Robin Hood legends to be swept up in this quick, entertaining tale." —Publishers Weekly -
