Reviews

A great storyteller
The Times
A St. Joan book to remember . . . the familiar tragedy flames up with new and terrible effects in the retelling
The Sunday Times
A vivid recreation of Joan's age, so full of hypocrisy, vengeance, blood, treachery and madness - one that is eminently worth reading
Financial Times
A fictionally and spiritually satisfying Joan
Guardian
