Overview

Michel de Nostredame, the French apothecary commonly known as Nostradamus, has gained a cultlike following since the sixteenth century. His loyalists credit him with predicting numerous world events — the Great Fire of London, the rise of Napoleon and of Hitler, the nuclear destruction of Hiroshima. Although much has been learned about Nostradamus over the centuries, his most important collection of prophecies has remained hidden . . . until now.
The discovery of a puzzling message, written in a series of codes and ancient languages, prompts a young woman to seek out Jonathon Payne and David Jones at a charity event at the University of Pittsburgh’s Cathedral of Learning. Unfortunately, their meeting is interrupted by an assassin, sent to kill everyone who knows about the document.
Relentlessly hunted by those determined to learn the secret, Payne and Jones are forced to fight back. In an adventure that spans two continents and several centuries, they must locate the sacred text that may change everything we think we know about the future.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Kuzneski's anemic fifth thriller to feature ex-Special Forces soldiers and best pals David Jones and Jonathon Payne, now fabulously wealthy after their discovery of a Greek treasure in their last outing, The Lost Throne, an attractive stranger named Ashley Duvall asks their help in deciphering a coded message from the ancient past. Shortly after they agree to look into the matter, an assassin shoots Ashley dead. Jones and Payne banter their way across Europe searching for the meaning of both the message and a mysterious wooden box. Thief Franc?ois Dubois (aka "Frankie Death") also wants the message and the box. Jones and Payne team with Ashley's neighbor, Megan Moore, who they learn is the last living relative of Nostradamus, the originator of the box and the message. Boring chitchat and too many historical, geographical, and culinary asides interrupt the infrequent action, while a rushed ending and a lastpage revelation indicate a continuation of the Nostradamus theme to come. Author tour. (July)

    Typical "Codes" Book

    Not Chris Kuzneski's best book. Though still fun to read as his characters are very likeable people. I'd rate this book just ok - Chris has lost his edge and is writing like everyone else now; typical "codes" book. Not enough information on Nostradamus. I will always read Chris Kuzneski's book as he writes excellently, but I feel like he's only out to satisfy his publishers demands and is writing much like many of the good writers today-who all seem to be writing books too quickly to satisfy their publisher's demands on what the publishers THINK the readers want. Getting very tired of the codes and puzzles of antiquity, as they all seem the same.

    The Prophecy: Prologue (Explanation)

    ((Okay so I don't spend a million chapters explaining how it works the Prologue is going to be a quick run-down of the book...))
    <p>
    You've probably heard when someone calls a person a grumpy cat or something. Usually the person being called a cat has narrowed eyes, possible a bed head and a bad attitude. They are basing it off of their current persona and looks. Well in this world Shifters take that quiet literally. Once a child with the genes of a Shifter reaches the age of 15, the Shifter's Mark, a circle with three overlapping stars appears on the child's wrist. Then they are sent to Ireland to attend the only 'Shifter Academy'. There they learn to control their shifting, they are taught to fight, along with other crutial needs. The supernatural world is seperated for the most part from the normal world so if your a Shifter you usually know it. But then here pops up a Shifter completly aware of the supernatural world...but the supernatural world was not aware of her. Myth Rosaline Kilent has knowledge of the supernatural world but lived in the human world, therefore the supernatur part knew nothing of her. But when she strikes the age of 15 and the Shifters Mark appears on her wrist she is shipped off to the Shifter Academy. There she is treated like royalty for being the only newcmer that everyone doesn't know in a few centuries and she doesn't like it. She is used to being ignored and doesn't care for the sudden attention. She gains a best friend, Kilye, who can shift into a black wolf. Everyone becomes curious to what Myth can shift into and starts to pressure her. When she finally does it's shocking...she turns into a white lion...which no one has ever hifted to, not even the gods. Then the next time she shifts she is a white wolf everyone treats her like royalty even more so. Then a phropehcy pops up and includes a total jerk that hates Myth. They have to share a room and start training together, much to the dislike of both of them. With the hatred continue or will it fall to the mercy of something more? With the propechy be fullfilled or loss in the excitement?
    <p>
    ((Does it sound interesting enough to write? Let me know please!))

    The prophecy. Prologue

    Fireheart continues to follow the strange cat, wondering who she was. Then she finally turned around to see him. "What are you doing here?! Shouldn't you be in your clan?" She asked. Fireheart was no spy, he was loyal to his clan as well, but he should be there. "I'm so sorry. I wondered who you were is all. I am Fireheart." He meowed. The cat hesitated, but finally meowed "I am Springfoot. I live lonely, and away from my clan. They hate me." She sounded almost sorry for herself. "Well, why don't you come with me. My clan leader is very nife and would let any loner join." He meowed confidently, walking toward his camp.
