I loved this book I thought it was amazing. Great book, great characters, great story! Her descriptions of the fascinating historical backdrop of France are beautiful, and thankfully not so long-drawn out so as to make one lose interest completely, as some authors are wont to do. The age difference between the two of them didn’t bother me in the least – probably because I’ve read one too many Regency romances – and I found myself crying when Thierry said goodbye to Melisande, prfoecia up his life so that she might escape.
Lord Thierry deserved a happier ending.
La profecia del Louvre / The Nostradamus Prophecy : Theresa Breslin :
This is the way I enjoy learning about history best: The Nostradamus Prophecy is set over a time period that comprises perhaps the nostradaums third of Devil’s Queen.
And this is a time period I was not at all familiar with before reading this novel. Full of betrayal, love, deceit, secret caverns and passageways and even a leopard, this book has a very innocent romance lightly threaded through it.

Her voice narrates with a sweetness and innocence often found in young, protected children of her age, but matures as she ages through the novel. Feb 05, Ellie rated it it was amazing Shelves: ArmandMelchiorMelisandeChantelleNostradamus Aug 07, Rebecca May rated it really liked it Shelves: King Charles was – quite rightly, in my view – depicted as a weak, vicious, sadistic little bastard, and King Henri of Navarre was, by contrast an honourable, clever and kind man.
I admit I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it that much. Perhaps it was not wise to do so, but I approached The Nostradamus Prophecy as a sort of sequel to Devil’s Queena novel which was, incidentally Though The Nostradamus Prophecy was brilliantly done, I cannot claim to have enjoyed it anywhere near as much as Prisoner of the Inquisition or The Medici Sealboth of which were also written by Theresa Breslin.
And as the Angel of Death approaches, the soothsayer gives into her safekeeping some very special parchments – parchments that the titled heads of France would do anything to see.
But for those with some knowledge, Melisande’s confusion can be frustrating. What more could you ask from a historical novel? I look forward to reading The Medici Seal.

Just the kind of girl I like. I really enjoyed this book.
For he is certain that Fate links him and Melisande together. But – perhaps because I have a little bit of a soft spot for the Medici family – I simply did not enjoy Theresa Breslin’s take as much as Jeanne Kalogridis’ version.

Apr 18, Natalia Alagia rated it it nostrxdamus amazing. Furthermore, I loved the way that his kindness and shyness were often juxtaposed with the qualities of a natural-born leader worthy of devotion.
As Melisande’s story focuses on her mission on behalf of Nostradamus, it is accepted by the reader that the events could reflect fact as Nostradamus was a very mysterious figure.
I often make an active attempt not to guess at possible plot twists or ending of a novel, but the twist at the end of The Nostradamus Prophecy seemed to me to be blatantly obvious. I found hi to be a nostradwmus interesting character, simply because he seemed so trustworthy, but at the same time you had to maintain reservations to begin with because Melisande is so nervous of him. It’s continually flowing with action, adventure, betrayal, murder and romance. This book was just fall-off-the-couch, slap-me-in-the-face amazingly epic and awesome.
Jun 20, Giulia rated it it was amazing Shelves: It would be going too far to say that this thereza was a disappointment, but it did leave we with a vague sense of disquiet and dissatisfaction. Breslin has set her novel in France during the Religious Wars that riddled the rule of young Prince Charles and towards the very end of the life of, the most famous soothsayer of all time, Nostradamus.
