What Members Thought

I loved how strong Anyanwu was, especially in the end when faced with a difficult decision, one that would take her away from the ones she loved: family. I recommend this book. its slow in the beginning but it has a powerful ending.
As a teen I read Mind of My Mind and Patternmaster but never read Wild Seed or Clay's Ark from the same series. Now is my chance to rectify this oversight. Amazon is selling all 4 as a single Kindle book for $9.99 -- highly recommended!

Wild Seed is not as good as other books in the series but an interesting read nonetheless.
Last month's book group selection, and more fun than I imagined it would be, though the historical environment didn't do much to make the story more meaningful, in my own view.
