In 1556 France, Queen Catherine de Medici spies on her husband, King Henri II, and his lover, Diane de Poitiers.

Driven nearly mad by jealousy, the queen, who is “very fond of do-it-yourself magic,” is frustrated with her court astrologer’s ineffective powers, until he reveals his knowledge of the magical object called the Master of All Desires.

This is a centuries-old box that contains the living head of Menander the Undying – a magus who sold his soul to the devil in exchange for eternal life. Anyone in possession of the sharp-tongued, mean-spirited and unpleasant head may have their wishes granted, selling their own soul in the process.

With the queen in pursuit of Menander, the famous Nostradamus gets involved in the story.

Prophete Nostradamus

Not to mention that the country is on the doorstep of the civil war.

However, I found the book full of wicked thumbnail sketches of power players, riotous actions, delicious mystery and romance, luminous prose, and feisty heroines with a feminist sensibility.

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I want to send you good wishes & good health in your future studies.

    What is happening now is criminal. I urge you to write local and federal goverments and voice your disgust with how they are handling this situation.

    You should voice your opinion everywhere you go.
    You will not be manipulated by fear.

    I urge you to do research and to think for yourself and question everything that government tells you.

    Please share these links, we need to end this crime against us.

  5. Hi,

    We’re wondering if you’ve ever considered taking the content from redridinghood.blog and converting it into videos to promote on social media platforms such as Youtube?

    It’s another ‘rod in the pond’ in terms of traffic generation, as so many people use Youtube.

    You can read a bit more about the software here: https://bit.ly/2YSNI2f

    Kind Regards,
