    I really enjoyed this series, but this pathetic attempt to wring money from readers ought to embarrass Michael Scott (or his publisher.) It adds nothing to the series or character development as you would expect from a 12-page e-book. (view spoiler)[ Scathach singlehandedly rescues Joan of Arc from her execution.

    Beautiful writing and interesting thought. Joan didnt die at the stake but did she survive the arrow wound she was given making her grand escape?

    I really enjoy the characters of Joan of Arc and Scathach in Scott's series, but this short story doesn't really add anything new to what we know. There are no new insights into these characters -- it's just a recounting of how Scathach saved Joan of Arc from being burned at the stake so that she could become one of the immortals. So, there's plot, but not much in terms of motivation or explanation. Plus, the story is from another person's POV, and it really doesn't add anything to the series ei I really enjoy the characters of Joan of Arc and Scathach in Scott's series, but this short story doesn't really add anything new to what we know.

    While I knew this would be a short story, I was still anticipating something a bit more substantial than a 16 page story. And I also guess I misunderstood when I expected the story to cover more than it does. The title tells you exactly what you will read about in this tid-bit. There are certainly no more details, which I guess the author feels are well enough addressed in one of his full-length stories (The Necromancer if I'm not mistaken).

Not up to the standards of the other books in the series, this piece almost had the feel of the series being milked for all it is worth. Let's just say I am very, very glad that I was able to read a library copy rather than spend my hard-earned cash on it.

    Short Story in the world of the “Alchemyst” A pretty fun short story that delves deeper into Scathach’s history with Joan of Arc. This is pretty much an action packed, fast paced record of a lot of smash! I’m here for it.

    Awesome description of a very important event/change-up of an event in Michael Scott's version of history. Almost everything is one long fight scene (which, of course, is captivating and whatnot) but I also love how Joan and Scathach influenced and affected the narrator's/witness' life.

    Another fun side story to the main series. I wish this had been longer though. More background. The Billy the kid story was almost three times longer (still pretty short and a quick read).

    I finished the series a year or two ago, but I'd always really wanted to read this. It was what I was looking for to calm down after my last read, and I enjoyed it.

    To me, The Death of Joan of Arc is the perfect kind of companion short story. Does it add anything to the main series? No. But that's why it's a companion. It's there to enjoy if you want to read it. And importantly, it's just as good as the novels. I love that this story is told from the perspective of a character who never appears in the novels. I love the framing of this story as the recollection of one person's experience with Joan and Scatach.

It makes for a completely fascinating story about is the sort of storytelling that is wonderfully apt for the kind of legendary figures that Joan and Scathach are.

    https://thebookloversboudoir.wordpres... This is my first time reading the author. Maybe this short story would be more enjoyable if you’d read the full-length novel in the 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.

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.

    Short review: This is a very short story in the same realm as the rest of the Nicholas Flammel books. Doesn't really add much to the story and the basic are already hinted at in the books. But it is cheap and worth the read if you like the series. Full review on my blog at http://www.mrshields.com/the-death-of...

    Disappointingly short. This deals with the 'death' of Joan at the stake, and how Scatty manages to rescue her. I enjoyed this short tale more because it was told from an independent viewpoint, that of an English archer. At least it put some flesh on the bones about the relationship between Joan and Scatty, But I just wish that it had been slightly longer. Disappointingly short.

    Wow - a "short" story is right ... more like a short preface or even the blurb from the dust jacket of the next "real" novel. :) What was there, was pretty good, but it was no where near enough to satisfy.

    This was a short story, but a very good one. It helped me figure out why Scattach and Joan had such a good relationship.

    The Death of Joan of Arc: A Lost Story from the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel is a short story from The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series written by Michael Scott, which tells the tale of how Joan of Arc – a human immortal survived being burned at the stake. This short story takes place before the series, but should be read after The Magician after Joan of Arc officially appeared in the core story. Joan of Arc is an immortal humani who is known all over the world as a heroi The Death of Joan of Arc: A Lost Story from the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel is a short story from The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series written by Michael Scott, which tells the tale of how Joan of Arc – a human immortal survived being burned at the stake. This short story takes place before the series, but should be read after The Magician after Joan of Arc officially appeared in the core story. Joan of Arc is an immortal humani who is known all over the world as a heroine and eventual saint. History says she was burnt at the stake in 1431. However, she was saved by Scathath. However, during the rescue, Joan was badly injured during the escape, and Scathach, Nicholas and Perenelle Flamel saved her through the first ever blood transfusion. As the blood was from Scathach, a vampire, this resulted in Joan becoming immortal. The Death of Joan of Arc: A Lost Story from the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel is written rather well. It is written like a last will and testimony of William of York, twice Archbishop of York, as he retells the seemingly impossible story about the true fate of Joan of Arc. All in all, The Death of Joan of Arc: A Lost Story from the Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel is a wonderfully written short story about the backstory of Joan of Arc and her relationship with Scathach and how they became life-long friends. It is also a worthy addition to The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel universe – enriching it just a tad more.

    Now the problem with novellas is that some of them can be long, a collection of stories or it can be way too short like the bummer of a novella in the Great Library Series I read last year.

One of my favourite characters in the series is Scathach and I was very excited to read about any of her previous adventures, this one in particular though was actually mentioned multiple times in the series ever sense Joan was introduced so while I was hoping for something new, it wasn’t exactly a bad read. For one it’s extremely short so for a change of pace, it works very well before moving on to another book or a completely different series like I usually do in my readings. The more interesting thing here though, was that this story was told from the perspective of a new individual who saw the rescue, and it does nothing but reemphasizes how much of a threat Scathatch actually is. We see enough evidence of that in the series, but I guess I’m the type of person who enjoys seeing more displays of any spoken about abilities. I did hope that we might expand to how she turned Joan, but I guess what we got served it’s purpose, even though it wasn’t enough to satisfy me at all. Final rate: 3/5

    It was a very short story, literally 10 pages on my e-reader. Basically, it’s just Scatach being badass and rescuing Joan, (view spoiler)[single-handedly defeating half an army in the process (hide spoiler)] . And while a more practical part of me was noting how highly impossible it would be for Scatach to swat scores of arrows out of the air even with her supernatural reflexes, there was still a lot of action and excitement for me just to kick back and have fun while I read it.

I think the story would've benefited from being expanded – for example, if we saw Scatach preparing for her mad charge into the city, or the aftermath of Joan's escape which would've allowed us to see the bond between the two women, especially since I suspect that (view spoiler)[the wound given to Joan during her escape was the one that nearly killed her and forced Scatach to make Joan immortal to save her life (hide spoiler)] . On the other hand, though, it's the fact that the story is told from PoV of one of the soldiers present in Rouen that day that has no connection either to Joan or Scatach is what gives it a special charm. Rating this 3*, because while it was fun, I think it wouldn't be fair to rate this snippet higher.

    I mostly give the companion material higher ratings because they are usually much less rated than their main series. This short story isn't "bad" per se, but it's a detailed recount of something the readers have already been given a summary to. I think the POV character actually had some really accurate observations, but like many reviewers have pointed out, it doesn't exactly add much to the series as a whole. Just don't read it with a high expectation and you should be fine imo. I mostly give the companion material higher ratings because they are usually much less rated than their main series.

TO BAD IT DIDN'T SAY MORE ABOUT JOAN OF ARC, LOVED HER CHARACTER ALSO , IT'S BASICALLY HOW SCATHACH SAVED JOAN FROM HER DEATH SENTENCE AND GALLOPED AWAY WITH HER. IN THE SERIES IT DOESN'T MENTION HOW SHE WENT ABOUT IT, SO THIS NOVELLA WAS GREAT BECAUSE YOU GET THE STORY BEHIND THAT RESCUE. LOVED THIS!

    This was a good read, not spectacular, but entertaining nonetheless. It is told from the point of view of a guard who is reluctant to sentence Joan to death. It was interesting to see Scathatch from an outsider's perspective. My only complaint is how short it is. I knew going in that it was only an ebook short story, but I read it in ten minutes. Other then that, it was a decent story. This was a good read, not spectacular, but entertaining nonetheless. It is told from the point of view of a guard who is reluctant to sentence Joan to death.

    As the name suggests, it's about the death of Joan. If u have read the secrets of immortal Nicholas Flammel, then u know who she is/was. Although the beggining was confusing as I didn't know who the narrator was, but overall it's a good read. I don't want it to spoil for anyone but I am happy to find out what happened.

    VERY SHORT SHORT STORY Only a few pages so if you find this book for several dollars do not buy it. It only talks about the day Joan of Arc was to be burned to death and how Scatty came in and saved her. No real details on them, their friendship, how they met - not one true bit of extra details given.

    Well, there was not any new thing in this short story. It was already mentioned in book 3 (I guess, it was when the twins met Joan), and now in this novellas the author just added a bit detail. Anyway, it's still okay to enjoy in such a windy day. Well, there was not any new thing in this short story.
