Jaime Lee Moyer lives in a dry land of cactus and cowboys while dreaming of tall trees and the ocean. She writes novels about murder and betrayal, friendship, ghosts and magic. She is the author of Brightfall, also published by Jo Fletcher Books, as well as Delia's Shadow, A Barricade In Hell and Against A Brightening Sky.
This Jeanne, however, is wonderful, a richly drawn woman who is capable of fierce love, of deep friendships, of railing against her fate for as long as possible, until it threatens the lives of those she loves. I think this is the best book I've read all year - Historical Novel Society Divine Heretic rewrites Joan of Arc's life with heart and humanity, creating surprising new twists in the tale we all think we know - Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth A Joan of Arc like no other. Moyer takes the myth of the Maid of Orleans and comes at a different tale, a darker one. For those of us who love Jeanne d'Arc and have always wanted to rescue her from the flame, a new retelling - Patrice Sarath, author of The Sisters Mederos and Fog Season As I grew more and more absorbed in Divine Heretic, I came to love the way it isn't conventional fantasy - Blue Book Balloon Full of surprising twists and subversion of the legend as it is traditionally told, Jaime Lee Moyer manages to make the story truly her own. You might think you know the plot, but trust me, this is a different story, using characters and elements, but weaving it into a new tapestry worth discovering for itself - Libri Draconis I am absolutely intrigued by how history and myth will get mixed together - Run Along the Shelves A treat for those who like their myths with extra magic - The Times on Brightfall Boldly envisioned and beautifully told - Sebastien de Castell, author of The Greatcoats series on Brightfall
