really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction, supernatural
Read from September 18 to 29, 2014

This is the most scifi vampire novel I have ever read. And since it's Octavia Butler (one of the greats), it's old-school scifi, meaning the characters tend to speak in complete, expository paragraphs. I do wish the novel focused more on what I think is its most compelling theme - free-will - but I enjoyed Butler's take on vampire society anyway.
