The Heretic: A Joan of Arc Alt History Short Story

Ninety-two years of dynastic squabbles have cursed France with war. Men see God’s hand in all. Even prophecy.

Jehanne, a peasant girl from Lorraine, aims to fulfill the prophecy by crowning a king.

But crowns do not make a king. Neither does Jehanne’s obedience to God.

History tells us that Joan of Arc burned at the stake. What if history is wrong?

“…a special shoutout to Monalisa Foster’s Joan of Arc story. Not only is it a nice bit of alt-history, but the ending was unexpectedly touching.”
