The Galactic Milieu drama continues with a female protagonist and a corker of a final line!
We have started the final trilogy of Julian May’s epic series with a book that asks “what if the Kennedys, but psychic?”
Intervention concludes with a fairly epic showdown. There’s some dark, dark stuff here, but it’s such a wild ride! And Uncle Rogi continues to be a lovely old crank.
After travelling six million years into the future, Lisa and Erika grapple with a tonal shift, but it’s a shift that feels pretty good once we settle in — in great part because Uncle Rogi is a cantankerous delight!
Julian May wraps up the Saga of Pliocene Exile. As usual, we have thoughts! And feelings! Who got a good ending? Who got the shaft? How did this strike us now as compared to our first times through? All this and more if you just hit “Play”.
Lisa and Erika really dig into where Julian May might have been coming from. She gave a few of her characters a raw deal, and really tips her hand starting with the title of the book itself. Reading this novel with 2019-brain is a very different exercise than our first reads-through. (Yes, we recorded this episode in 2019.)
The saga continues with the other half of Group Green. We have so many feelings about spoilery recaps, mopey Elizabeth, savvy Mercy, and so much “Oh Bryan. Why?”
Erika and Lisa dive headlong into their epic re-read just as Group Green dives headlong into Earth’s Pliocene Epoch. Will either live up to expectations?
In the inaugural episode of this read-along podcast, Erika and Lisa try to convince you that Julian May’s Saga of Pliocene Exile and Galactic Milieu series are well worth reading, even if they are a bit hard to find.
You have fair warning before they dive into hardcore spoilers about the series as a whole and what they expect for this re-read.
