it was amazing

The powerful conclusion to the Xenogenesis Trilogy. Like most of Octavia Butler's work, it revolves around stark choices regarding the nature of humanity when survival is at stake; like most of her other work, it ultimately ends on a note of hope despite the compromises.

Unlike the first two books in the series, this one is told in the first person. I don't know if that's part of the reason I found it so compelling. All I know is that the first thing I did upon finishing it was to flip back to the beginning and immediately launch into it again, because I simply wasn't ready for the story to be over.
