The Death of Joan of Arc by @flamelauthor

By Pamelascott

Michael Scott's first-ever exclusive ebook short story delves into the world of the bestselling series The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel and offers readers a never-before-seen lost story-the story of two warriors who would become sisters.

Joan of Arc was not burned at the stake in Rouen, France in 1431. She was rescued from certain death by Scathach the Warrior.

The truth about that day is revealed in the last will and testament of William of York, and it will leave you wondering: does Joan of Arc still walk the earth?

This is my first time reading the author. Maybe this short story would be more enjoyable if you'd read the full-length novel inthe series. Or maybe not. The premise is interesting and piqued my interest. The story doesn't live up to its potential. It's rather flat and dry, just a recounting of Joan's rescue from her execution by a mysterious red-headed warrior. There is no attempt to develop character even a little bit. Just because it's a short story doesn't mean the author can be lazy and regurgitate information. This story is flat and listless. I'm glad I borrowed it and didn't pay for it as it would be a waste of money. Still, having read about the author's other books, I do want to check them out so The Death of Joan of Arc wasn't a complete waste of time.
