Imago

by Butler, Octavia

The final novel of the Xenogenesis Series, Imago, is from the point of view of one of Lilith’s children who exemplifies the potential good that could come from cross-breeding. As young Jodahs transitions to adulthood, he doesn’t become a hybrid as expected, but an ooloi - a sexless subspecies that can manipulate DNA. The first ooloi born to a human mother, Jodahs’ power may make him a savior or lead to the destruction of all that has been saved.

Review this book!

On Apr 1, 2005, Yayjmds said
Anything by this author is wonderful. You can't put her books down and the science fiction is truly creative. Her books are about race, culture, gender and differences between people, particularly race. You will keep looking for her books.
