Who was Nostradamus? Was he a seer, a visionary, or an ordinary man of his time exploring mysticism? This novel about Nostradamus gives the reader the choice of remaining a skeptic or becoming a believer in the power and prophecy he presented to the world.
Through the character of his friend Alain Saint-Germain, we get a glimpse of Nostradamus the man, and how he evolved his prophecies and future predictions. As observed by Alain:
"I raged inwardly at the hypocrisy of people who clamored in the Marketplace for copies of THE PROPHECIES, those who paid coins for his forecasts yet cared only for the fantastical, and when the words were fulfilled, cursed Nostradamus for his verity. They condemned him as a dealer in black magic, yet I had long known him as a man of faith and high aspiration, a devoted husband and enduring friend."
