    Too short

    I love the series this short story is set in and was looking forward to read it. It was only 17 pages on the nook. The story itself was 9 pages. Way too short even for $.99. I was expecting something a little longer. The story doesn't give that much more information then what is already in the books. There is no dialogue between Scathach and Joan of Arc. Just the details of the rescue.

    Not worth the dollar.

    It was not what I expected and this is something the author could have posted on his website. It gives the details of Joan's rescue and that is it. Well written but too short to have to pay for.

    Not worth the $0.99

    Very disappointing. I have enjoyed the series but this "short story" reads more like a short chapter from one of the novels. It could be the basis for a decent side-novel based on the series but does not stand on its own. Do not buy this, as there is nothing here that you don't already know from the series. Joan of arc is tied to the stake. Scathach rides in and saves her. We learn that Scathach is not human. End of story.

    An amazing side story!

    The Death of Joan of Arc is a wonderful short story that adds a great deal of depth to the relationship between Joan and the Warrior Scathach, from The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel series. We get a hint to these events in the main story of The Magician. Michael Scott takes us right into that day as seen through the eyes of William of York via his last will and testament, as he recounts what happened in 1431 when Joan of Arc was about to be burned at the stake...

    This 12 page eBook is an action packed and a very entertaining read, that will leave you wanting to follow Joan and Scatty off into the sunset as the end comes far too soon. One of the best things about this story for me was getting to see what a humani from that time would think about an immortal warrior like Scathach.

    This was an O.K. book, but it should be free. It costs 99¿ and was suppose to be 18 pages but it was only 12. If you are reading it though, you may notice that every time you turn the page, the page numbers do not always change. The other six pages are just the things that are at the back of, or in the first few pages of books that most people do not tend to read, from what I know. There is also advertising for other books and e-books from Michael Scott. I would say overall, the book was somewhat interesting, if you buy it, you may be disappointed about how short of a story it is. In the end though I am just here to help, and what you do on your Nook is really up to yo. I know this was a somewhat lengthy review, compared to some of the blank, or one liner/one word comments that people post so I want to say thank you for listening to my review of this mini-book, or side book, if you would call it that in Michael Scott's "The Secrets Of The Immortal Nicholas Flamel".

    Rip off

    I paid 99cents thinking i would get a 99cents sized book, but really it was the size of a typical free sample of a book. The story itself is 8pages, not really any story to it and no dialoge between Joan and scatach. It was nothing really and i wish i could rate it 0 stars its just a rip off.

    Okay

    I think the story was well thought out and entertaining, however it was very short (only 8 pages of actual text and 18 total) and not really worth the money.

    Short but good

    It may only be 18 pages long, but it is very good if you like highly detailed descriptions

    Its rediculously short

    How can a book that is 8 full pages of text be worth 99 cents? If you do the math 99/8 is 12.375 cents per page!!! RIPOFF!!!!

    I was expecting more. It would have been nice to have the story continue. Disappointed in the shortness of this book.
