Dauntless (Valiant Hearts, #1)Dauntless by Dina L. Sleiman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Charming medieval story! Aimed at young adults, there is plenty to please any reader who enjoys a dash of daring-do, a rumbling of romance, and good spackling of suspense.

Lady Merry Ellison leads a group outlaws - barely more than children - who protect the innocent remnant of a village scourged by the wicked King John. They survive by their wits and their commitment to each other, stealing only what they need to survive. Then one day, Merry lifts a box filled with gold coins from the top of a nobleman's coach.

Forced to move out of their usual territory to escape detection, they relocate too close to their old village. Discovered by someone she knew from childhood, someone who meant more to her than she's comfortable remembering, Merry is forced to make some soul-wrenching decisions. Decisions that will affect not just herself, but the lives of the children she protects. Who can she trust?

Well-written tale with engaging characters. It started a bit predictable, but soon morphed into a delightful romp that took the reader through medieval forests and towering castles. Is says this is book one, and I look forward to reading the following books in this series.
