Where to start? May has done herself proud here, with a fine conclusion to a saga that I spent a long time wishing wouldn't end, and an equal amount of time begging bookshop owners to "give me the book I know it's here somewhere!"
The plot is still wonderfully crafted around Marc and his...coterie, seen as a retrospective through the memoirs of Uncle Rogi. Knowing (if you've read the Exiles Saga) what happens, though not the mechanics of it, makes the end all the more poignant.
The imagery conjured up is, as usual, superb...you can almost see Marc's CE Rig, and he is, without doubt, Abbadon, the angel of the abyss. Beyond that we have the (rather subtle) Miltonian symbology..a sympathetic Lucifer figure? Heh.
The only gripe is that the conclusion was just not suitably..apocalyptic, given what it was meant to symbolise, for both sides. Ah well.
In all other respects, a fine book and a great conclusion to a fabulous trilogy of books. Now go and buy the others (esp Intervention!) if you haven't already.
I'm off to the Metaphysic Congress, looking for a boy with piercing Coercer eyes...

Format: Hardcover
A well written and intelligent science fiction book. Book 3 in the trilogy of the Galactic Milieu, centred around the Remillard family who have the strongest supernatural powers of all humans. You have to Read Jack The Bodiless and Diamond Mask before this one.

Magnificat is Marc Remillard who appeared in the Saga of the Exiles. This book details the culmination of the Metapsychic rebellion with Marc and his younger brother Jack on opposing sides, with earth shattering consequences.

This trilogy has lots of links to the Saga of the Exiles which you could read before or after this Trilogy, but best to read Intervention before this Trilogy as that introduces you to the Remillard family and the origins of Psychic abilities in humans.

This is still one of the best books I have read.

The climax to the finest series of fantasy novels ever written (yes, including the Lord of the Rings). Start with the Many Coloured Land and eight books later you get to this masterpiece. I envy those about to read them for the first time.

Im a huge fan of the many coloured land saga and this series gives so much context to that original series. Well worth a read although i recommend either starting with the Many coloured land or atleast intervention before reading this

Magnificat succeeds wonderfully in drawing together all the loose ends of the preceding books and closing the loop between the Pliocene exiles, the exoticTanu and the Lylmik, and the post_Intervention Earth of the 2100's. The whole series of books together - the Saga of the Exiles (4 volumes), Intervention (one long volume), Jack the Bodiless and Diamond Mask (one volume each) and finally Magnificat are a superb read which'll keep you charging up your e-reader more or less permanently! Possibly my favourite science fiction story.

I always had the idea that the Saga volumes were written slightly tongue-in-cheek, with whimsy and troll / goblin stuff all over; a sort of SF Lord of the Rings, if you like. Noticeably, though, as you work through the books they become more serious in their approach to the story; darker and more adult. The character of Marc Remillard is developed to explain some of his actions and indeed his presence, in Pliocene Europe. He's not a nice bloke, really - his ultimate fate is guessable quite early on and isn't gruesome - but it is most definitely justice being served. Clever, clever plot twisting and development.

I heartily and fully recommend you try these books. Can't speak more highly of them.
