    It felt a lot like a debut novel, and had the shortcomings to be expected in a self-published novel without the benefits of big house editing and publishing. While I considered it just OK, but the ideas behind it were fun and the diversity too. I'll still be looking for more from this author! She's still young, and I'm sure there will be more to come.

    Ms Jago's writing style is simultaneously totally unique and reminds me a little lot of Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett, which in my opinion is one of the highest compliments I could give. She has mastered the often absurd and humorous style that I love so much, and done so without over complicating the story - a feat which is seriously impressive. I love this take on a classic story, and I love every character. The only complaint I could possibly have would be in the formatting - scene change [...]

    This book is fun. The author has an enjoyable style and a good sense of humor, and the story is great! The writing isn't totally polished, but it's well written overall, and any mistakes/unpolished spots aren't too distracting. The characters are likeable and memorable.

    It’s probably really a two star book but I could see specks of what the author was trying for sprinkled in. I think the author just tried a bit too hard. Glad I read it though.

    honestly, this is exactly the kind of book that I was looking for, the characters and the plot were gr8, and had all the makings of an excellent book. I wanted to add diversity to my reading, get into fantasy, and find some kick-ass female characters. and I feel that with this book I could have had it all. which is to say I'm mightily disappointed that the writer couldn't get an editor. Or maybe they did have an editor who just was not very good at editing. I am so sorry to have to say it but it [...]

    After being caught redhanded during her usual crime spree, Marian Stoke decides it's time to do A Good Thing to make up for it, such as stealing the executioner's ax to prevent a mostly innocent man from being killed the next day. But when her theft sets off dangerous and unforeseen consequences, Marian finds herself caught in a whirlwind of secretive thieves, an intoxicating new romance, and the evil schemes of the violent Prince, featuring plenty of snails.This is a hard book to review, becaus [...]

    Robins in the Night is by far one of the most entertaining novels I’ve read in a long time. The characters are all very human-- with the exception of the snails, who are very snailere are a lot of snails in this book.I mean, everything about this works so well, but if I had to pick one thing that really stood out, it would be the humour. The author, Dajo Jago​, is perhaps best known for her posts on tumblr (if you’re on there and you're not currently following her-- Dajo42--, I’d recomme [...]

    Anyone approaching Robins in the Night by Dajo Jago with the expectations of reading a standard medieval fantasy will quickly find it necessary to revise their expectations. This is not a standard fantasy, and it's not just because the protagonist is a transwoman of colour. (But how wonderful it is to read a novel where the protagonist is a transwoman of colour.) Robins in the Night is a post-modern, post-colonial fable that takes the Robin Hood mythos as a starting point for an examination of c [...]

    I am giving this book 2 stars because although I did not like it, I don't think the book is an objectively bad book. The diversity was cool, the writing style had promise that a good editor could have worked with and the writer clearly published this without the support of a big publisher. Sadly, this meant that Robins in the Night read like a cross between a tumblr text post and a wanna-be Neil Gaiman novel, neither of which are a compliment for a novel. I mean, I didn't dislike this book, but [...]

    I set this book as "currently-reading" several months ago. I've read up to 20% or so but I can't do it. I genuinely can't. It's just hard to take seriously or dedicate my limited amount of time to. The concept is BRILLIANT, don't get me wrong but the writing style is so sarcastic It reads sort of like it needs to be read out loud. By the author, Dajo, only. Because literally no one else would get it right. But I can't read it because it's like the book is a giant inside joke I'm not ever going t [...]

    An intriguing premise and I appreciated the trans representation being front and center, but ultimately suffered severely from lack of rigorous editing (there were a lot of "first novel" issues like sudden [multiple] POV shifts mid-scene and the pacing felt off at times). The attempts to engage race were clumsy at best and problematic at worst.

    I grew up, so fiercely, on the Rowan Hood novels and this book takes my girl Robin Hood enchantment into my adult, queer life. It reminds me of the books I loved as a child but has more things I can relate to now. There's a lot of writing and editing flaws in this book, but the story made me absolutely not care.

    This book makes absolutely no sense. I feel like a traitor for saying that, given the LGBTQ+ themes, but just really didn't. The narrator is almost _too_ objective; I never seemed to connect with any of the characters or the action or.hing, really.Also, WHAT was WITH the SNAILS?!

    Fun premise. Fun characters. wlw and trangender representation, which is great. The writing quality is pretty bad. It read like average fanfiction. I would have given it 3 stars if I'd read on ff or AO3.

    The plot promised to be so good but when reading it was just clichés and predictability :( I would love to have seen some characters more fleshed out. The snails were amazing though!

    A sweet lesbian romance, a compelling and original take on the robin hood mythos, and an adorkable black trans lady protagonist. A thoroughly enjoyable read!

    Well written, especially for a début novel. An interesting concept explored and full of representation. Nice one, Dajo!

    what a wonderfully queer little story, with the small world and the ludicrous prince and the hatchet on the roof. and the SNAILS what the heck are they doing even?
