Publisher's Summary

There is a secret hidden within a body, burning within the flames, that will change history forever. 

2014: in the French city of Orléans, a man’s charred corpse is found in a burned-out hotel, stripped of all ID. Police captain Inès Picaut must hunt down his killer before others fall prey to the fire. She has only one clue: the name of a woman who has been dead for over 500 years. 

1429: Joan of Arc is taking the war to the English. They want her dead but the only way to reach her is through a fiercely loyal inner circle - until undercover spy Tomas Rustbeard finally earns her trust.... 

The myths of the past hold the key to the mystery of the present, but how many must die before the truth is laid bare?

Extraordinary story. Extraordinary voice actors.

Listened to it again immediately. So well written and so well told. Perfection in all regards.

Wow.

Amazing book and performance. Listened to it at one sitting. Re-kindled my interest in Jeanne D’Arc as well

Binge listening

Having read the novel a while ago, I revisited Into The Fire to distract me from the building work around me. Listening rather than reading is a completely different experience and juxtaposition of the two performers highlights the intertwined threads of the story. I loved it and, t got me through the drilling, sawing and general aural mayhem of a refit! Highly recommended

Cracking read

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, with two stories skilfully interwoven and two excellent narrators telling the parallel stories. Wholeheartedly recommend.

Best yet!

The dual storyline were synergistic and gripping. Superb characterisations, research, and performances. I now want to find out more about Joan of Arc. This is my favourite audiobook novel to date. Loved it!

Perplexing!

I am perplexed! And looking forward to reading other reviews. I found jumping between two, although interlinked stories, created a disjointed listen! I loved the characters in the depiction of the fate of the maid, vivid and powerful, but then obscured by the rude return to the modern day detective as the chapters jumped about in a discordant way. I wish the two tales had been sequential, and the more recent events a coherent reflection on the past? I’m curious as to why the telling of the maid’s story, remains a positive experience for me, whereas the other felt trite and over engineered?

Great story

I really enjoyed this, not as good as the Boudicca series but I enjoyed it.
