I can honestly compare this favorably with the few Octavia Butler books I’ve read. And that is high praise indeed… it was a really enjoyable read and pretty thought-provoking. Kayla and Mishalla are readymade sympathetic characters and it is easy to care for them and their plight… I really liked Kayla and Mishalla and their romantic interests were pretty likeable too. I liked seeing the growth of Devak, the grandson of Kayla’s Assignment. The conspiracy of the plot was fairly surprising and actually a little horrifying as I become invested in all the characters… I wonder if they are planning a sequel.
