"I enjoyed Julian May's Pliocene Exile series and have been waiting for her new book. She is a writer of perception and power who has created an original world by a skillful weaving of archeology, mythology, and imagination." -- Jean Auel
"I've long been impressed with Julian May's imaginative and richly detailed alternate history. The care and attention she brings to her novels is an inspiration to anyone with ambitions to create a self-consistent world of fiction. Unlike so many others, she does her homework and weaves threads from real life into her tapestries of wonder."
-- David Brin

Endearingly told largely from the viewpoint of Uncle Rogi Remillard- maverick great-uncle to some of the finest and most powerful minds of the Human Polity of the Milieu- "The Metaconcert" finishes the story of how metapsychic humanity avoided destruction and forced open the door to galactic citizenship. It's a broad canvas that involves five alien races, humans running the gamut from angelic to demonic, and politics that make the Byzantine empire look simple.
May calls this "a root-tale to the Galactic Milieu"; while it helps to have read the Pliocene books, the story begun in "The Surveillance," continued in "The Metaconcert" and finished in the Milieu Trilogy stands on its own as one of the most richly imagined futures in the science fiction of the last 20 years.
The benevolent aliens, led by the mysterious Family Ghost, must work through the humble offices of Rogi, to ensure that Denis and not Victor writes the script for mankinds future.
Black and white, good and evil, altruism and greed: Denis and Victor.
This book is seen easily as a denouement to a great story began. But an omega and another alpha, mixed just right?This book fits the tab, and how it fits! Suffice to say that after reading this book, A yearning was satiated, and an expectation was overwhelmed. It was worth the money spent.
