The third instalment in a prize-winning series charting the rise of the House of Medici as they become Masters of Florence and progenitors of the Renaissance.
Fontainebleau, 1536. Francis II, Dauphin and heir to the French throne, is dead. Poisoned. And the royal court believe Catherine de'' Medici to be the murderer. Catherine''s husband Henry will now be the next King of France – and the Medici are known to stop at nothing in the pursuit of power.
But not yet queen and without an heir of her own, seventeen-year-old Catherine cannot be sure of securing her family''s legacy. To ensure the conception of an heir, she will need to seek help from an unexpected ally: Nostradamus, the reclusive astronomer and purported seer. Dismissed by most as a charlatan and a heretic, Catherine knows he will be her only hope in becoming a mother to the future king.
Amid court intrigues, betrayals, and humiliations, Catherine waits. She awaits the death of her father-in-law, King Francis, and the birth of a son to carry her name. For once she is queen, Catherine de'' Medici''s power will only grow.
But that power comes at a heavy cost, one she might ever regret.
