Description

When Nostradamus proclaims to the French court his prophecy of a great massacre, the young King Charles only laughs. His mother, Catherine de' Medici, pays more heed - she believes that Nostradamus can truly see the future.

But the great soothsayer's prophecies are not only for those who rule; he also has a message for Melisande, the minstrel's daughter, who he believes is linked with him by Fate. And as the Angel of Death approaches, Nostradamus entrusts to her safekeeping some very special parchments - parchments that the rulers of France would do anything to see . . .

Review quote

"The novel goes at a rollicking pace . . . Is especially praiseworthy for dramatising a period of European history which children might not normally encounter" * The Times * "The rousing story is always clearly told and cleverly plotted" * Books for Keeps * "Theresa Breslin's The Nostradamus Prophecy is a superb and totally gripping story set amidst a Fresh court and country filled with tensions and uncertainties. The assured characterisation and terrific plotting hold a reader in thrall" * The School Librarian * "Breslin's books are always founded on immaculate research and her enthusiasm for her subject is invariably infectious" * Glasgow Herald * "An unputdownable read that will have you guessing and constantly on the edge of your seat until the very end" -- Naomi, aged 14 * First News *
