Format: Paperback
all this saga of books is uniquely excellent. Julian May carries the longs and complex story arc without a hitch. buy every one of them. unlike many fantasy and sci fi series that you dutifully buy to the bitter end, this one will continue to delight all the way. then move on to the galactic milleiu books

For me this is where the Saga of The Exiles really begins to kick in. The first two books are great but with the introduction of the greatest anti-hero in modern Sci-Fi the third book in the series becones indespensible. It sets up a cracking finale for the last book.

After a pacy narrative in the first two volumes of this series, May seems to starting to struggle to keep the momentum going. The Tanu have been dealt a devastating blow, and are now reeling under the pressure from Firvulag attacks. In their turn, the Firvulag are facing demands from the newly ascendant Howlers, led by Sugoll and Katlinel. But it also seems there are new threats emerging from beyond the shores of Europe. I liked the first two books, but felt that this one lacked direction. The story is descending into one that is dominated by politics and powerful individuals, like Elizabeth Orme and Felice Landry. There is little in the way of new discoveries to be made, and those elements of the plot that ARE new are dealt with on a very intimate level almost immediately, thereby removing an opportunity to pose a dark, new and mysterious threat to the Many Coloured Land. Not as good as the first two books in the series: in my view only worth reading if you want to find out what happens to some of the survivors of the cataclysm that ended 'The Golden Torc', but otherwise I wouldn't bother.

The first two books in this series were spectacular. Unfortunately, this book, the third in the series, is totally underwhelming. The author has floundered miserably. I just hope the last book redeems the whole series. Reading this book has been a drudgery. Null Point!
