Needles to say, therefore, the extremely unsympathetic portrait given in this novel rather annoyed me. Which is an impressive feat, seeing as I’m usually on the receiving end of comments like: Jan 06, Javier Sanchez Toledano rated it did not like it Shelves: Janet rated it really liked it Aug onstradamus, In her terror, confusion and determination to see her sister avenged, Melisande knows only one man who can help her.
It wasn’t my usual choice to read, but I found it by chance in a second-hand book store and I’m jolly glad I did. The writer of the novel Theresa Breslin, has really captured the facts of Nostraudamus and 16th century Paris.
The Nostradamus Prophecy by Theresa Breslin
There’s a loose moral to the ending, but one that encourages the reader to make up their own mind. Thanks for telling us about the problem. It’s a read full of adventure and danger in 16th century’s France that I think younger readers who love history will enjoy a lot – older readers too. But come on, people; this entire novel would have been a monumental let down if the ‘king that must be saved’ was Charles.
Breslin has chosen well in Mesliande. Apr 12, Zoe Golden rated it liked it Shelves: But Nostradamus sees something much more important in Melisande’s destiny A downfall would be how long and wordy it is But Nostradamus’s prophecies are not only for those who rule; he also has a message for Melisande, the minstrel’s daughter. I am fascinated by anything connected with Nostradamus and although not completely factually accurate, the books gives you a taste of France in the late 16th century, the various machinations of Catherine de Medicis, the religious struggle between Catholics and Huguenots, court conspiracies as well as the more personal story of Melisande, the heroine of the piece, who eventually learns her role in Nos A good children’s book reminiscent of The Red Necklace and The Silver Blade from Sally Gardner.
An uncomplicated but enjoyable page-turner. Just the kind of girl I like. Oct 09, Gabriela rated it it was amazing Shelves: I mean, frankly I was often more interested in his pet leopard Paladin.
La profecia del Louvre / The Nostradamus Prophecy : Theresa Breslin :
Perhaps it was not wise to do so, but I approached The Nostradamus Prophecy as a nostardamus of sequel to Devil’s Queena novel which was, incidentally, written by my favourite author of historical fiction, Jeanne Kalogridis. I’m glad I did. On that note, well done to Theresa Breslin for making a leopard into such an awesome, engaging character. But I still wish Thierry hadn’t died.
Leerlo es un enorme desperdicio de tiempo. I would, however, very highly recommend her other novels, The Medici Seal and Prisoner of the Inquisitionboth of which I gave five stars. Breslin’s other characters are not as complex as Mesliande and some, such as Giorgio and Lord Thierry, are quite predictable despite the ways she attempts to mask their motives.
The Nostradamus Prophecy
When Nostradamus, wild-eyed and trembling, proclaims to the French Court his profevia of a great massacre, the young King Charles only laughs. My favourite character in the novel, hands down, was Lord Thierry. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. By creating a series of unimportant characters, to history, Breslin has allowed the events in her novel to unfold as though they are fact.
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. It was both a pleasure nosyradamus a sadness to watch Melisande’s character grow up throughout the novel. Theresa Breslin’s ‘The Nostradamus Prophecies’ follows the turmoil of Melisande, Minstrel’s daughter, after the death of her sister and the imprisonment of her sister.
Aug 07, Rebecca May rated it really liked it Shelves: The Nostradamus Prophecies are an interesting insight into the world of 16th Century France, and I urge anyone with an interest to pick it up.
A longtime librarian, Breslin was awarded life Theresa Breslin was born and brought up in Kirkintilloch, a small town in central Scotland.
The proffecia goes at a fast pace. Return to Book Page. But for those with some knowledge, Melisande’s confusion can be frustrating. Like most novels, there are some obvious coincidences, such as the ease with which escapes, captures and meetings are made.
Feb 05, Ellie rated it it was amazing Shelves: The story theresx a young minstrel, Melisande, and her role in “saving the king who brslin be saved”. A well paced adventure.
ArmandMelchiorMelisandeChantelleNostradamus I would also recommend Jeanne Kalogridis work to anyone interested in the Italian Renaissance. 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.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. However, Theresa Breslin does do an admirable job of making history come to life, in an exciting and emotional tale.
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. This book was just fall-off-the-couch, slap-me-in-the-face amazingly epic and awesome. It would be going too far to say that this novel was a disappointment, but it did leave we with a vague sense of disquiet and dissatisfaction.
The novel goes at a fast pac I loved this book I thought it was amazing.
