About this title


Marian and Robin’s carefree childhood in Sherwood Forest takes a dark turn when the arrival of a cruel new lord sets off a series of intrigues including robbery, kidnapping and murder. Marian watches in horror as the man strides, weapon in hand, toward where Robin lies helpless. But when Robin’s plan to exact vengeance goes awry, Marian must risk her own life to save him. A rash of robberies has been plaguing the great houses of Nottinghamshire. Knowing what she does about him, Marian is forced to ask herself whether Robin is capable of the crime spree or if his was just a one-off act of revenge. Marian’s attempts to uncover the truth lead her into the path of the handsome young Guy of Gisbane - and danger. Kidnapped and hopelessly lost in the forest, Marian has only her wits to rely on if she and Robin hope to survive.WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR: ‘A Viper in the Forest’ is ideal for any young reader looking for a female role model who stands strong in the face of adversity. This brave young woman holds her own in a medieval world of cruelty, injustice and corruption. WHAT IT IS: The first book in the Young Marian Series, ‘A Viper in the Forest’ by Mandy Webster is a prequel to the classic Robin Hood legend. Often portrayed merely as Robin Hood’s love interest or a member of his troupe of merry men, ‘A Viper in the Forest’ reimagines Marian as a hero in her own right. Young Marian will inspire readers with her fearless attitude and strong sense of loyalty and honour.WHY YOU WANT TO READ IT: The history of Maid Marian has long been shrouded in mystery. ‘A Viper in the Forest’ takes the reader on a journey to the root of the Marian story, exploring the forces that shaped the woman at the heart of the classic adventures. Readers will be inspired by the heroism and courage that have made her so integral to the Robin Hood legend. There is a shortage of feminine heroines in Middle Grade Literature who challenge the issues of social inequality, yet in this cruel medieval setting in which women are so often overlooked and oppressed Marian stands out as a heroine unwilling to accept the restrictions society wants to set on her. Part Katniss – capable and fearless; part Hermione – smart, sensible, and a grounding influence on her more impulsive friends; Marian combines these qualities with humour and warmth. Young Marian is an inspiration for any female reader who is searching for role models and leaders as she navigates the often challenging obstacles that teen life brings about.

About the Author:

The idea for the Young Marian series came about in 2012 but the inspiration for the series probably began when author Mandy Webster moved to England at age 17. It was here she first became entranced by English folklore, particularly the stories of King Arthur, and the tales of Robin Hood. Scenes from the popular 80s BBC TV series Robin of Sherwood were also shot nearby. As a writer for the popular children's online game Webkinz, Mandy has written for children for years but always harboured a desire to author a children's book of her own. Her fascination with Robin Hood, England and medieval times never faded and became the focus of her first novel. It was only after she began working on the novel however that it occurred to Mandy that the story of Maid Marian had rarely been told. That sparked the idea to put the young lady into the starring role in her own series. Mandy's writing career has evolved over the years but began at Brunico Communications. During her time there, Mandy worked her way up from Production Assistant to Creative Director of Advertising. It was there Mandy had her first articles published and did her first ad copywriting. From Brunico, Mandy went to work as a copywriter at ACLC Advertising, where she wrote national television, radio, outdoor and print campaigns. In 1997, Mandy quit her job at ACLC to stay at home with her new baby. A few years and another baby later, Mandy started her own advertising business, combining her background in graphic design and copywriting to offer her clients a one-stop shop. She also worked in traditional media, drawing and painting, and has designed fleece baby blankets for a successful Canadian blanket company. After her third son started school, Mandy returned to work full time. At Webkinz, her passion for writing for children flourished. And that, combined with her love of reading to her three kids, convinced her to finally put pen to paper, and bring to life the story of Young Marian. And the rest, as they say, is history!
