From the New York Times bestselling author of the Faerie Wars Chronicles, Herbie Brennan, comes this heart-pounding middle-grade adventure—think The Da Vinci Code for tweens. Reminiscent of the Percy Jackson and Artemis Fowl series, this edge-of-your-seat thriller involves an ancient curse, a murder, and a conspiracy by a secret society.
When Edward Michael “Em” Goverton uncovers the key to a five-hundred-year-old deadly prediction by the prophet Nostradamus, personal tragedy morphs into international crisis. Soon Em finds himself enmeshed in a sinister web of shocking events where nothing is quite as it seems. But the ominous forces behind the plot are not about to sit back and let their plans be ruined, and soon their net begins to close in on Em.
It’s a race against the clock for Em and his friends to prevent a catastrophe that threatens the lives of an entire generation.

This book was made to entertain and that is exactly what it does. Time travel is one of the best themes to write a book about and to make it action based was a genious idea. The romance in it is also made to make you laugh. There isn't much forshadowing for this book. The suspence will keep you reafing this book. Herbie Brennan has several book like this as well.
