• "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"
