They took a one-way trip into the unknown, but can they find a way back? The Pliocene Epoch's exiled races are caught in a violent struggle for ascendancy. The humans who escaped to the Galactic Milieu are now beset on all sides, as they seek a foothold in this turbulent land. Aiken Drum, now King, has many enemies, but the Firvulag seem set to move first to initiate their long-prophesied Nightfall War. And although recent confrontations have weakened Aiken, any sign of frailty will bring down his kingdom. The powerful Elizabeth Orme supports King Aiken, and his enlightened despotism is preferable to Marc Remillard's cruel ambition. But these conflicts will be overshadowed if a time-gate is opened back to the 22nd century, something Marc can never permit. All will be decided at the Grand Tourney, where Tanu and humans will face the Firvulag in the last great contest of the exiled world.… (mais)

SAGA OF THE EXILES
  rustyoldboat | May 28, 2011 |
Een groep menselijke tijdreizigers uit de 22ste eeuw laat zich via een tijdpoort terugbrengen naar het Plioceen, in de hoop daar een Hof van Eden aan te zullen treffen.

In plaats daarvan wachten hen twee elkaar bestrijdende buitenaardse rassen - de Tanu en de Firvulag - en ze worden tot slaven gemaakt. Een van de leden van de groep - de bedrieglijke avonturier Aiken Drum - weet de Tanutroon te veroveren, maar zijn bewind wordt al spoedig bedreigd door de Firvulag, die vastbesloten zijn zowel de mensen als de Tanu uit te roeien.

Maar deze bedreiging lijkt een bijkomstigheid vergeleken met de komst van een ander menselijk wezen dat over metafychische vermogens beschikt die die van Aiken Drum zelf verre overtreffen. Het is Marc Remillard, de aanstichter van de metafysische opstand die bijna Het Bestel veroverde, en die na te zijn verslagen door de tijdpoort is gevlucht. ( )

THE ADVERSARY follows the interwoven relationships of people from each of the five groups, plus the reluctant arbiter of them all, Elizabeth Orme. Elizabeth supports the aims of King Aiken and his Tanu, Howler, and human followers. Aiken, with his enlightened despotism, seems the best ruler available. Certainly not King Sharn-Mes of the Firvulag, who plans to exterminate all Tanu and humans. Certainly not Marc Remillard, whose cold, cruel mind is the only one stronger than Aiken’s. The other groups have no ambition to rule. The Lowlives, outlaw humans, cooperate with Aiken when they feel like it. The children of Marc Remillard and his followers want only to build a time gate to take them to Earth’s twenty-second century A.D., where their parents came from.

The maneuvering to build the time gate is the main plot of THE ADVERSARY. The title character, the Adversary himself, is Marc Remillard. His driving urge is the urge for dominance: humans over other species, himself over humans, his descendants mutated into forms which will allow them to dominate their universe. But Marc’s methods thus far have been so draconic that his children find them – and him – repugnant. One of his son Hagan’s goals in returning to Elder Earth and the government of the Galactic Milieu is to help the Milieu find and destroy his father. So when Marc starts visiting Elizabeth and helping her heal children, all anyone can think of is the terrifying power Marc is developing: learning to jump instantaneously anywhere in the universe, carrying along anything he chooses to bring. Everyone knows that soon Marc will be able to stop the building of the time gate.

The 4th in the Pliocene Era saga, this is space opera before the term was really coined. I loved it when I first read it, and definitely liked it now, but can see it's age. It's not as sophisticated in it's relationships as I recalled, and while I loved Marc, I found his relationship with Elizabeth less convincing. But these are minor quibbles because there is such a broad tapestry here and so many characters to find and love. And Aiken Drum is a great character to spend time with and he didn't age at all.
PS I hate the cover art on the edition I got and changed it to this much more pleasing look. Bad cover art can really impact a book! ( )

I am the dark-avised, the widower, the inconsolable,
The Prince of Aquitaine before his ruined tower:
My only star is dead; and now my jewel-studded lute
Will only bear the blackened sun of Melancholia . . .

My forehead is red yet with the kiss of the queen;
I have dreamed in the grotto where the siren swims.
And twice I have crossed the Acheron, triumphant . . .

El Desdichado, Gérard de Nerval
LOGE:
They are beginning on to their end,
They who imagine themselves so firmly enduring.
I'm almost ashamed to share in their dealings!
How strongly I'm tempted to change myself again
Into licking flames, consuming the ones who once tamed me,
Rather than blindly passing away with the blind,
Were they ever so splendidly godlike!
That's not such a bad idea . . .
I'll think it over.
Who knows what I'll do?

Das Rheingold, Richard Wagner

It had happened, just as Elizabeth had known it would; and there was no metapsychic prolepsis involved in the foretelling, only logic and inevitability, given those protagonists: Aiken Drum, Felice Landry, and Marc Remillard.
