The Surveillance (Intervention Series #1)

Overview

In 1945, the technology of death was mastered, and Mankind entered a new era that could well be its last. But Nature evolves its own defense, and since that time, unnoticed throughout the world, children with amazing mental talents have been born. They are the metapsychic operants — and they have the power to rule the world.

But superhuman ability misguided can be as sure a weapon as the deadliest bomb. Will the new humans lead us to utter destruction? Or will they show us the ...

Overview

In 1945, the technology of death was mastered, and Mankind entered a new era that could well be its last. But Nature evolves its own defense, and since that time, unnoticed throughout the world, children with amazing mental talents have been born. They are the metapsychic operants — and they have the power to rule the world.

But superhuman ability misguided can be as sure a weapon as the deadliest bomb. Will the new humans lead us to utter destruction? Or will they show us the way to take our place among the truly intelligent races of the universe?

"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

Readers and reviewers alike were thrilled when three of the biggest names in fantasy--Julian May, Marion Zimmer Bradley, and Andre Norton--joined to create Black Trillium. Now, Julian May takes up the tale of the three princesses, as the sorcerer Orogastus returns with long-forgotten technology.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A dozen years after the events recounted in Black Trillium , the World of the Three Moons is endangered by another sorcerer, Portolanus, Master of Tuzamen, considered a mountebank by some, yet still dangerous. The three sisters who hold the talismans of the Sceptre of Power, which previously saved their country, Ruwenda, must bury their differences to save their world. When Kadiya, the middle sister, champion of the aborigines, loses her talisman, and Portolanus and the pirate queen of Raktum kidnap the king of Laboruwenda and his children to obtain the talisman of his wife, the queen, it remains for Archimage Haramis, the oldest sister, to master her powers sufficiently to take on Portolanus and the armies he has raised against her beleaguered country. The Master of Tuzamen is no longer a figure of fun, however, but is unveiled as Orogastus--the powerful and evil sorcerer, believed destroyed 12 years previously. This sequel to the joint effort produced by May, Andre Norton and Marion Zimmer Bradley is a superior tale, giving life, character and emotion to the three Petals of the Living Trillium as they continue their adventures. (July)
Library Journal
The kingdom of Laboruwenda finds itself on the verge of war as a sorcerer thought to be dead returns to reclaim the three talismans of power held by Queen Anigel and her sisters. May's solo sequel to Black Trillium (LJ 8/90), a fantasy collaboration by May, Marion Zimmer Bradley, and Andre Norton, follows a path similar to its predecessor--separate quests for the sisters lead to reunion and a final confrontation--but changes its focus from the absolute destruction of evil to the possibility of its ultimate transformation. Libraries with active fantasy collections will want this.
