Product description

Book Description

They left their world to find peace, but found the ultimate war for power.

Book Description

Following an immense cataclysm, Tanu civilization is in ruins. Now the humans who passed through the gate to prehistoric Earth can finally seek power. Aiken Drum names himself King, but faces great opposition. The Firvulag are hellbent on wiping out every group but their own. Felice Landry, possibly the most powerful psychic humanity will know, hasn’t finished wreaking havoc. Then another faction emerges. A group of metapsychic human rebels have been in hiding on another continent. Until their leader, Marc Remillard, decides to take advantage of the new regime. But the group’s children, who came of age far from the Galactic Milieu, just want to return to the 22nd Century. However, the Galactic government hasn’t forgotten Marc or the billions of lives lost through his crimes – so he will stop at nothing to keep the time-gate closed. Praise for the series: ‘Engrossing ... it stirs the mind and engages the feelings’ Fritz Leiber, ‘A many-coloured tapestry of exotic adventure’ Roger Zelazny, 'Deservedly acclaimed ... a tremendously original premise’ SFReviews.net

How is it possible for one single person to possess the depth of imagination, the artistry, and the simply amazing ability necessary to tell as story as magnificent, coloured and wonderful as this is?

I love science fiction/fantasy and the Saga of the Exiles is very unusual in my opinion.

The series starts slow, but picks up and becomes enthralling in my opinion.

The only complaint that I have, is that at the end there are too many unanswered questions and I wish Julian May would write a sequel.

Also look at Intervention and Jack the Bodiless - the series that prequel this, but you can read both series in isolation

The Saga of the Exiles on e-reader! Excellent!

First read Julian May's brilliant Saga years and years ago and still have the paperbacks. Went on from the Pliocene exiles to Jack the Bodiless and Diamond Mask and all the rest of the Milieu stories. Fabulous stories of telepathically and psychokinetically operant humans and how they got there. Yes, it's nonsense by any normal, everyday standards but the story is a huge sweep of imagination with cleverness and wit woven right the way through it - Aiken Drum, the trickster and arch-manipulator being the spitting image of Machiavelli, for instance.

If you're an SF buff I highly recommend this series. Funnily enough, I was looking idly for it as e-books just a few months ago and there was nothing available from "official" channels - an unofficial copy I found and downloaded had no formatting. You'd be amazed how flat and boring a story becomes with no paragraphs! Then they appeared as "trade copies" - not quite sure what that means, but perhaps it's associated with one gripe I do have about the e-versions - that scanner misreads haven't been sub-edited out. For example, one of the Firvulag Great Heroes is called Sharn-Mes; usually abbreviated to Sharn. In the e-version it appears about 70% of the time as "Sham" which grates badly every time. There are other examples.

Nonetheless, I'm ploughing my way through the whole lot all over again and loving it. Give yourself a treat. Get at least the four "Saga" books and read them!

A good storey, well written, but too many typos in this Kindle version that were not there in the paperback version I read years ago. I have just found one page that does not follow the previous, & I do not know how much is missing!

Intelligent , riveting......stunning series of books. Can't believe I had never heard of these until a few months ago. Were recommended to me by a friend. I read the first and bought the rest ..... and the next series too. Julian May is an exceptional author. Cannot rate these books highly enough.

All of the books in the series are gems to read with cracking plots and characters you really care for.
Julian May really did pluck the muse for this series of books and again the non born king just keeps giving more of the best.
You really should read these books as they are a rarity.

I've had the series in book form for sometime but wanted some on my Kindle. Can still enjoy reading them and get something new from a re-read.

I read all of Julian May's saga of the exiles some years ago -it hasn't lost any of its fascination and has not aged at all - brilliant!
