Lilith's Brood (Xenogenesis #1-3) by Octavia E. Butler

Lilith's Brood (Xenogenesis, Books 1-3)Lilith's Brood by Octavia E. Butler

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dawn: After nuclear war destroys the world, Earths survivors are rescued by the miraculously powerful Oankali aliens- who survive by merging genetically with primitive peoples without their permission.

Adulthood Rites: Desperate to regain their world, childless humans seek to cleanse the alien taint by kidnapping hybrid children. But the raiders are blind to the truth of Earths new children.

Imago: The futures of both humans and aliens rest in one young beings successful metamorphosis into adulthood.

A very interesting read from Octavia Butler. Keeping in mind that this is actually 3 book sin one, it took some time to read, but was enjoyable.

Very interesting take on aliens taking over the world, and so much more that that. Thought provoking to say the least.
