Read No Good Deed Online Free - Fans of Dorothy Must Die will love this reimagining of the legend of Robin Hood. Girl power rules supreme when a modern girl finds herself in the middle of a medieval mess with only her smart mouth and her Olympic-archer aim to get her home.
Ellie Hudson is the front-runner on the road to gold for the U.S. Olympic archery team. All she has to do is qualify at the trials in jolly old England. When Ellie makes some kind of crazy wrong turn in the caverns under Nottingham Castle—yes, that Nottingham—she ends up in medieval England.
Ellie doesn’t care how she got to the Middle Ages; she just wants to go home before she gets the plague. But people are suffering in Nottingham, and Ellie has the skills to make it better. What’s an ace archer to do while she’s stuck in Sherwood Forest but make like Robin Hood?
Pulled into a past life as an outlaw, Ellie feels her present fading away next to daring do-gooding and a devilishly handsome knight. Only, Ellie is on the brink of rewriting history, and when she picks up her bow and arrow, her next shot could save her past—or doom civilization’s future.

I have always loved a good retelling. There is just something slightly magical about someone else putting a spin on an old childhood favorite and Robin Hood has always been one of my favorites. I think there is something so fun about the underdog succeeding and of course the good always triumphin...

I hadn't heard of this book until I got the email from the publisher asking if I wanted to read it. I liked the cover and a lady Robin Hood? Yes please.
I liked Ellie. She's smart and strong and one hell of an archer. The rest of the group is introduced individually and it really works. I enjoyed...

"I was on the cusp of believing something unbelievable. All this time, the infinitesimal details had been filling up my subconscious like an underground spring until denial seemed more foolish than acceptance.
This was fun :). I loved Ellie right from the beginning and that she wasn't a damsel-in...

Re-tellings. The latest fad.
While they can be successfully pulled off, so long as the world is drastically different (ie: Lunar Chronicles), it's awfully hard to do well. This re-telling of Robin Hood has some great little anecdotes and moments; but for the most part it feels like recycled scenes...

This book immediately caught my eye because there aren't that many Robin Hood retellings and I remember a couple years ago I was really interested in reading a retelling of that story and I never got around to it. I'm so glad I got the chan...

What a cool story. It starts off fast and never drags, and the originality of the story! I can honestly say I have never read a book like this. Though I wish the world building had more definition, it didn't lack enough to make you feel a loss or confused.
The characters were crafted and arti...

No Good Deed was a unique and entertaining book! I liked how the author took a typical retelling plot and added her own twists to make this a refreshing story. I think fans of Robin Hood and of time travel will get a kick out of this book.
This retelling of Robin Hood had a time travel aspect tha...

Stealing from the rich and giving to the poor is the extent of my Robin Hood knowledge. If you're like me and not familiar with the original folklore, it's hard to see the significance of certain characters, such as Will Scarlet and Little John as they're introduced. Keep in mind, though, this is...

“No Good Deed” is a fairy-tale/legend retelling that served as a good palate cleanser for me in the middle of quite a few heavier reads. The plot is fast-paced and the characters are just the right amount of snarky and developed for a light read. The content is mild, and the writing easy enough t...
