By day, the Sheriff of Knottwood is in full control, making the rich richer and the poor poorer. Unfair taxes, unjustified sentences, and unnecessary cruelty abound. But by night, Marian, a casual thief, steals money from people who don't need it any more. One night full of rain, she is discovered by a secret organisation that meet in an old tavern deep in the woods. She is recruited into their ranks, and asked to prove herself to the Hooded Council, a group of seven women who steal professionally, and along the way, many complications arise. Love blooms, blood is spilled, and there is fire, all along the way for Marian to meet the ever-elusive Robin Hood.
