Review quote

"Superior blend of gutsy action and dreamy magic in a well-wrought, darkly sinister medieval setting."-"Kirkus Reviews" "Chamberlin is making a familiar tale even more memorable in her retelling. . . . The scene in which (Joan) first dons armor is hair-raising."-"Booklist "(starred review) "Smoothly blending the real and the magical, Chamberlin puts fresh history to masterly use in another appealing chapter in her medieval saga. . . . The author is particularly good at adumbrating the paganism lurking beneath the Christian surface of the fifteenth century. . . . Chamberlin deserves an honorable place in the company of such writers as Twian, Shaw, and Anouilh."-"Publishers Weekly"show more
