review ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Stephanie Hemphill

St of heroes She runs away from home dresses in men’s clothes and convinces an army that she will lead France to victoryAs a girl in a man’s world at a time when women truly had no power Jehanne faced constant threats and violence from the men around her Despite the impossible odds Jehanne became a fearless warrior who has inspired generation. I don t know much about the story of Joan of Arc other than the simple details of her hearing angels helping to crown the Dauphin and subseuently being burnt at the stake by the English That being said I really enjoyed this bookThe point of view of Jehanne as she called herself was so vivid I felt as if I was with her throughout her journey However I would have enjoyed knowing what was happening in a broader sense like what other people were thinking or doing I might end up looking for novels and nonfiction to help expand my knowledge of this time periodIt was also very interesting to read this after watching Netflix s The King starring Timothee Chalamet The movie shows the events that led to the Hundred Years War I m not sure of its accuracy since I haven t read much about the war But the idea that the war wasn t intentionally started by the English is interesting to compare to Jehanne s view of the English as a horrible enemy Overall I enjoyed this book much than Hemphill s other work Wicked Girls The verse writing style merged well with this story and the plot was much less juvenile If you re interested in Joan of Arc the Hundred Years War or French history I highly recommend The Language of Fire

    I'm always on the look out for new novels in verse so when I saw a poetry book about Joan of Arc?

    Plot twist she diesWhy have I never read verse before this year? It lends itself SO WELL to historical fictionI really liked the start of this book especially since her family life is not something I've really ever heard of I also loved how this showed how heavily manipulated faith was in order to suppress women Also big shout out to the author for simplify the Hundred Years War and complex political conflicts

    This is the first YA book written in verse that I felt really nailed the execution There were so many beautifully written sentences but I never felt like the language's beauty was important than the actual plot and voice of Jehanne Everything about this book felt purposeful I think this book could also be loved by both Catholics and non Catholics because Jehanne is written as such a good character
