The Nonborn King features the same blend of adventure, rich pageantry, humor, and fantastic eroticism that characterized The Many-Colored Land and The Golden Torc. In The Nonbom King, Aiken Drum, a young human with awesome mental powers, manages to usurp the Tanu throne. This third book has the political intrigue, 'magic', big monsters, bad guys, good guys, a dragon, Abaddon, gold, more gold, betrayal, love turning to ashes.

The noborn king, . 4. He may wake and find me gone. She conjured up a fireball torch and went slipping and sliding down the crudely cut shaft. There was no dampness now, but the stair treads and risers had been designed for long exotic legs and the going was precarious.

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.

The Nonborn King book. On Earth, six million . In a moment all his fluff chapters became clear: Julian May needed a character to be involved in this one thing, so she invented Tony and peppered his adventures throughout the book so that when he was involved in this critical moment, we wouldn’t go Wait, who’s this guy? Except, the book is chock-full of who’s this guy?

Great author. Wonderful writing. Absolutely unforgivable, horrid publishing. Worth maybe 99 cents, not $9.99. Very irresponsible for Amazon to allow the publisher to sell an edit-less, scanned copy with so many spelling errors, with ofttimes several distracting errors per page such that the errors completely spoil the flow of the tale.

I fondly remember reading this tale in college many years ago, and hoped to revive the adventure -- spoiled by the many, many spelling errors.

A complete refund cannot cure the sour taste. Shame on you everyone involved. Fix it or remove it from the shelves. Does the amazing author a complete disservice.
The story of this book is fantastic. I read the paperback many years ago and loved it. I really enjoyed re-reading it. This ebook version kind of sucks though. They apparently used an OCR capture to digitize it and somethings are consistently wrong. the letters "ll" becomes "d", "al" becomes "d", etc. A lot of variations on this. Very distracting and drops you out of the zone. Some sentences I had to re-read multiple times just to make sense of them. It is a real shame because the story is fantastic. I'm giving it a 5 for the story but I would pass on the ebook.
Great book but as others have said, this classic (and the others in the serious) are so badly translated into e-books I can't believe Amazon doesn't take them off the market until the publisher goes back and actually edits them.

Thankfully I am the type of reader that can read around error but a lot of these are so horrible I couldn't ignore them either -which made reading one of my all time favorite books (well the entire first four of the series) rather difficult and I have stopped by the Kindle versions of the rest.

I will not be purchasing anymore until this problem is solved but again Julian May's story telling and actual writing are totally amazing; which is what I am giving five stars for.

If I could give 0 stars for the formatting I would...some people actually demanded their money back and I don't blame them. Amazon, please make the publisher fix this!
This has been one of the best sci-fi/fantasy stories I've come across in years. It deserves a full five stars and a movie/video game/boxes of silly memorabilia cash in for the author's family much more than Scott Card is raking in w 'Enders Game.'
This is an amazing story told w exquisite detail with complex characters that are all incredibly flawed and fantastically heroic in their own ways because they are more real than the cardboard cutouts we get fed night and day via a 24hour newscycle and most contemporary writing. However, after reading the first 2 books w reasonable e-book prices of $2.99 & $4.99 (though that is pushing it. There is nothing to print, store, or ship. There is no storage warehouse space to take room; no gamble on ordering to few or many from publishers for best guesses of market segment. And no truck burning fuel to get an item to my house from a man with nicely muscled calves in his brown shorts. All there is is pure avarice and profit on both the publisher and the middle man (amazon in this case). But even as I fight with the full $9.99 book price that effortlessly fills their pockets while sending information to my reader (which, by the way, I bought an iPad after your kindle died in less than 4 months of use it was so poorly made. So I can order from Barnes and Noble or my local library), I look forward to finding out more of this incredibly complex world. HOWEVER,THIS IS SO FULL OF TYPOS IT IS HARDLY RECOGNIZABLE. THIS IS A DISGRACE TO LITERATURE. Shame on all of you involved. I assure you I will go on every online used book venue (that can represent thousands of small booksellers all over the world) and buy each of these in hardcover before I will spend another cent trying to decipher what was done to this book. Just when I thought respect for literature was making a comeback with the succes of getting kids reading and seeing book clubs announced all in the face of the tweets and texts & emails. Now even the publishers turn their backs on great writing.
The third book of the Pliocene Saga is not as good as the previous two: the multitude of characters animates a plot that drags here and there. But it would be ok, a transition from the spectacular Golden Torc towards the grand finale. Unfortunately the Kindle edition is almost unreadable: a totally bungled OCR operation that no one bothered to edit, but was likely given to some kid with a spelling checker (which probably they didn't know how to use). So all sequences of letters like "il" or "ll" are transformed in "d": "pilot" becomes "pdot", all=ad, Cull (nickname of one of the characters) is transformed into cud. And worse: Julian May employs quite the vocabulary, adds up futuristic tech words and abbreviated "farspeech" lingo, which mixed with the dozens of typo per page made some parts were at best distracting and at worst incomprehensible.

Ms. May: if you are out there reading this, please have this edition withdrawn! Me: I'm extremely disappointed with Amazon and I want my money back, so I can buy a paper edition. I'll be searching for a printed version of the fourth chapter and be extremely wary of ebook re-editions of out of print books.
melody of you
This is a wonderful book by Julian May and whoever scanned it for ebook (and then failed to edit it) has made it unreadable. There are literally dozens of errors on every single page. "ll" comes out as "d" through the whole book. "un" is "im", "ild" is "dd", "torc" is "tore" - and that's a word that appears on every page in the book. I asked for a refund and received it - even though my purchase was more than 7 days old. I'm going to pull down my old hardback copy and read this in a print edition. The ebook is just impossible.
