He has watched generation after generation of his children die. But he still dreams of breeding a new race of immortal telepaths in his own image. When he encounters Anyanwu, the shape-changer and healer, he knows that he has met his true mate. Although only 300 years old, he is Doro's equal, perhaps the only other one of their kind on Earth. But she has sprung from wild seed, beyond his control, and she is Doro's implacable enemy.Hide synopsis

A prequel to Butler's Patternist novels, in which Doro meets another immortal whom he cannot control. Butler, who was the first "science fiction writer" to receive the prestigious MacArthur "genius" award, uses science fiction to explore the reality of slavery, and to examine how the past reaches into, and influences the present. 324 pp.
