For the past 6 months I have been making my way through Julian May's magnificent sweeping series (all 8 volumes) This is the second time for me but the first was long enough ago that I had forgotten many of the details. And it really is a grand story which deserves to be read from the beginning. I found this 8th volume to be perhaps the weakest, and many times I had trouble keeping interested.... yet the ending is fabulous, and well worth plodding along to arrive at! This is the kind of sci-fi epic that makes you wonder how true it may be, and entertains in a fine mix of philosophy, science and fantasy - bringing both tears and laughter along the way. Highly recommended, but if you're at any point in the journey already you know that.
One of the greatest books I have ever read! I love stories dealing with empires and families and galactic intrigues! For all of those who want their science fiction interspersed with soft magic of the mind (Paranormal abilities) and a wallop of aliens thrown in then this book is for you. This is the 3rd book in the series. It's a little slow at the beginning and this book mainly focuses on Marc, the older brother of Jack the Bodiless. But I like the idea of the human race developing their Paranormal abilities. Will read this again and again!

The Magnificat brings to a close not just one series, but two, rounding out and finalizing the personalities of these wonderful works in a way that confirms Julian May's truely "Magnificant" ability to make characters become true to life, in fact, bigger than life. The amount of accurate detail in both series leads the reader to fully appreciate May's research and genius, a true wordsmith. Magnicicat involves the reader totally and without reservation in a tale of such far reaching cover that you reach the end wanting more, and knowing the cast like your own family. I am sure we all have an Uncle Rogi. If you havn't met him yet, start reading.
I wanted to read this series to the end, and so I bought this final book. It is satisfying in most ways in that it ties up the storylines at the end and connects back to the first series. I don't understand the character of Marc very well, and his various time travelling selves don't seem to mesh logically to me. However, I enjoyed the story and can recommend all six books in the two trilogies as being worthwhile fantasy reads.
I started reading these in high school, and read them again this year. What a brilliant and imaginative view of the future. This last of the Galactic Milieu books is a must read for followers of Julian May's other books in the series.
I look forward to reading these with my sons.
Always a great read...
I liked this book, but to me, there were definite signs that the author was getting a little tired of writing the thing by this point. Still a worthy end to the Galactic Milieu series. Don't start here, start with Intervention, or better yet, The Many Colored Land.
Julian May has always been a favorite author of mine. This trilogy is only further proof of her literary skills. I have found myself getting really involved in this series, the tieing of this future based series with her pliocene exiles trilogy is superb and will make me reread the whole series as it's so much fun mixed with undercurrents of politics, aliens, time travel all mixed together so it's highly plausible and makes you want to read more. ONLY Julian May could do it.
