The main character, Melisande I love that name on paper, profscia someone please tell me how to pronounce itis a lovely young thing, thankfully with the inability to lie with any sort of success whatsoever. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Well firstly, it’s well-written and very engaging. When the same nobleman accuses Melisande and her father of heresy and treason, she is forced to flee for her life, leaving her father imprisoned.
The novel goes at a fast pac I loved this book I thought it was amazing. 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.

But then again, I also realize that if the two of them had married, the novel would have had to be re-classified as a historical romance, rather than a historical fiction. Paperbackpages. The writer of the novel Theresa Breslin, has really captured the facts of Nostraudamus and 16th century Paris.
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 Nostradamus’ prophecy.
And frankly, far more deserving of the word “King” than Charles ever was. The Nostradamus Prophecy is set over a time period that comprises perhaps the last third of Devil’s Queen.

The Nostradamus Prophecy by Theresa Breslin
The story follows a young minstrel, Melisande, and her role in “saving the king who must be saved”. Oct 09, Gabriela rated it it was amazing Shelves: I admit I wasn’t expecting to enjoy it that much.
Very vivid imagery, very intriguing, orignal and swoon worthy characters as well as a strong heroine and a story steeped in truth and fact. Though I can’t pretend to share her skill, I certainly felt like I could identify with Melisande every time she spoke of her music, or her sorrow at being without it. Mesliande, the daughter of a travelling Minstrel, her love interest, the wild Leopard tamer, Melchior and several other characters have been created to interact with the historical cast of King Charle’s cast.
Apr 12, Zoe Golden rated it liked it Shelves: There was a fair amount of explaining historical context and several x where the author repeated information she’d proffcia told us, but given that this is aimed at perhaps the younger end of the YA range, I overlooked it.
That being said, it appeared to me that Theresa Breslin managed to paint swift and vivid portraits of all her other historical characters; portraits that to me seemed pretty much spot on. On that note, well done to Theresa Breslin for making a leopard into such an awesome, engaging character.
Lord Thierry deserved a happier ending. 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. While I didn’t enjoy it quite as much as some of her other works, The Nostradamus Prophecy is truly deserving of the four stars I decided to give to it.
Breslin has chosen well in Mesliande.

I’m glad I did. Needles to say, therefore, the extremely unsympathetic portrait given in this novel rather annoyed me.
His character added excitement and inspired affection – at least in me. A downfall would be how long and thersea it is And this is a time period I was not at all familiar with before reading this novel. I noztradamus enjoyed this book. The book paints a vivid picture of the brutality of 16th century French politics and the vicious orofecia between the emerging Protestant and Catholic religions. An uncomplicated but enjoyable page-turner. The story centres Melisande, a young girl in 16th century Paris, who is caught up in a plot to murder all the protestants in the city.
La profecia del Louvre / The Nostradamus Prophecy : Theresa Breslin :
Leerlo es un enorme desperdicio de tiempo. 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. Which is an impressive feat, seeing as I’m usually on the receiving end of comments like: 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.
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. Heroines can be all too devious in certain novels nowadays. But for those with some knowledge, Melisande’s confusion can be frustrating.
