Joan of Arc'ın yarı kurgusal hikayesi. Kötü değil - ne olduğunu anlatmaktan. Ama neden olduğunu anlatmakta pek iyi değil. İngilizlerin yanlış olduğu ve Tanrı'nın Fransa'yı Charles VI'ya vermiş olduğu konum da buydu. Tanrı, Joan'ın öldürülmeden önce 2 yıl boyunca acı çekmesi gerektiğine karar verdi - ancak bunun neden gereksiz olduğuna dair hiçbir söz yok. Sadece öyleydi. Yazarın bir şekilde, böyle ya da böyle bir pozisyon almayı seçmediğini hayal kırıklığına uğratmak.
I put this book off for so long and finally picked it up today to see what it was about. It was a very quick read and what I imagine is the start of a really fun series, but I'm honestly not interested in reading the next nine, or the follow-up series. I get the concept, enjoyed Dan and Amy Cahill enough to KINDA tempt me into Book 2 "A False Note", but yeah, I expected way more out of it. Also, considering Riordan was behind the first book, I really thought it'd knock me out the park. I prefer him doing mythology, but that just might be me being a big fantasy kid. My favorite part would have to be how it's making me really want to read up on Benjamin Franklin, the center historian who's life you basically dissect to understand the first clue. I'm pretty historically ignorant, so this is definitely a dude I might wanna read up on. I even got excited when they hinted at Mozart being the main dude for the next book, but I think I'm just going to explore other books for now. I still stand by "Ring of Fire" by P.D Baccalario for anyone who wants a fun, historically enlightening book for young readers, as an addition to this series. Just to get excited about Riordan as an author again, it may finally be time for me to read "The Lost Hero" which I'm pretty excited about and have only heard good things on.
