How to Buy

First book of the Xenogenesis Series.

Lilith lyapo awoke from a centuries-long sleep to find herself aboard the vast spaceship of the Oankali. Creatures covered in writhing tentacles, the Oankali had saved every surviving human from a dying, ruined Earth. They healed the planet, cured cancer, increased strength, and were now ready to help Lilith lead her people back to Earth-but for a price.

"Engrossing . . . thought provoking. A new Octavia Butler novel (including this one) is an exciting event." -Locus

"Butler sets the imagination free, blending the real and the possible." -United Press International
