The Nonborn King

4.14 based on 3496 ratings & 28 reviews on Goodreads.com

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

About Julian May

Born in 1931, Julian May sold her first short story to John W. Campbell's Astounding Science Fiction magazine in 1951. It was a science fiction short story called Dune Roller. But it wasn't until the 1980s that the author returned to genre fiction, after writing a variety of non-fiction and children’s books, often under pseudonyms. May then wrote the phenomenally successful Saga of the Exiles, followed by the Galactic Milieu series. The Many-Coloured Land, book one of the Saga of the Exiles, won the Locus Best Novel Award. It was also shortlisted for top genre awards including the Hugo, the Nebula, the Prometheus Award and the Mythopoetic Fantasy Award for Adult Literature. Julian May lives in Seattle.
