5.0 out of 5 stars Bridge Between Pliocene Exile and Galactic Milieu 16 Aug. 2012
By Anastasia McPherson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I believe that Julian May's nine book cycle about humanity's entry into a galactic civilization based on the development of psychic powers to be one of the finest science fiction sagas ever written. Most impressively, as I have said in other reviews of the books, it is truly a cycle with the last book leading to the first in a continuous ring. Surveillance and Metaconcert, the two books that tell the tale of the alternate twentieth century where psychic people are being born and the social and political consequences of this development are examined, function as a bridge between the four books of the Pliocene Exile and the Galactic Milieu trilogy.

Narrated by Uncle Rogi, a lovable old maverick this tale is told by examining the first families to produce strong psychics, including his own family, the Remillards. Humanity as yet has no idea that they are being considered for galactic confederation and as usual, jealousy, greed and original sin get the better of us and we almost lose our chance to genuinely evolve. May is an optimist though and the well intentioned manage to make certain we aren't kept to our solar system in ignorance and war forever.

The entire cycle is more than worth reading, it is brilliant and this entry is just another example of the brilliance, thought and fun of this series. Begin with the Pliocene Exile Quartet, or begin here with the books of the intervention and go on to the Galactic Milieu Trilogy and then the Pliocene Quartet, but do yourself a favor and begin. A truly complex and wonderful saga. Highly, highly recommended for science fiction fans, but fans of family sagas might widen their horizons with this powerful philosophical tale of a psychic family.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite series! 23 Mar. 2017

Wonderful series (actually 3 series comprising 9 books). They all tie together, so read them in order!
5.0 out of 5 stars Intervention 10 Nov. 2013
By Linda Sheean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a book I bought because I had lost my original copy. It is extremely funny and well-written and much too complicated to attempt to write a short review about the strange and intelligent folks who are characters in the book.
I recommend that people read it and it's predecessor, Surveillance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Double booking 26 Feb. 2013
By Nadine May - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I love all Julian May her books, and was not aware that this Vol 2 was also published in her book Intervention, which I read 2x. For me the story is both fiction but could very well become fact.
