Butler’s acclaimed Xenogenesis trilogy about humanity’s struggle for survival after nuclear apocalypse, and the alien race that could save the world—or destroy it

The newest stage in human evolution begins in outer space. Survivors of a cataclysmic nuclear war awake to find themselves being studied by the Oankali, tentacle-covered galactic travelers whose benevolent appearance hides their surprising plan for the future of mankind. The Oankali arrive not just to save humanity, but to bond with it—crossbreeding to form a hybrid species that can survive in the place of its human forebears, who were so intent on self-destruction. Some people resist, forming pocket communities of purebred rebellion, but many realize they have no choice. The human species inevitably expands into something stranger, stronger, and undeniably alien.
Butler’s Lilith’s Brood is both a thrilling, provocative meditation on the expansion of the human gene pool and an epic story of how it takes more than DNA to make someone human.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.

    Lilith's Brood

    Fascinating read. The characters are well fleshed out, realistically human and completely alien . A clashing of alien and human perspectives, needs and desires makes this book an intelligent and note worthy read. I appreciated that I was able to purchase the entire series in one e-reading pkg; very convenient. I would very much recommend this series. I enjoyed it very much.
