Summary

The world as we know it is gone. 
There are no more countries, states, or cities.  No more traditional government... 
only survivors who have created a new world made up of small colonies. 
 
It has been thirteen years since the 
last World War and the village of Lia Fail sits peacefully above the 
Hollywood Reservoir in the Santa Monica Mountains.  The settlement is 
making ready to host the fall Gathering. A time to remember the past as 
well as discover new loves, old friends, family, and fun, but just as the 
festivities begin, the people in Lia Fail begin to experience strange goings 
on they can't explain. Unseen forces attack several guests and friends 
begin to distrust friends.  When they receive news of a horrific 
massacre, they realize they must face an impending dark evil that 
threatens to destroy the tranquil village.  

 
 
Alia Stark, the queen of Lia Fail, must face this malevolent 
force alongside her oldest and dearest friends.  The fate of her 
people, the lives of her children and freedom itself rests in her hands. 
Will she have the courage to do what must be done... and at what price? 
  
This is the beginning of a journey that will change all of their 
lives forever.

    As the acclaimed Patternist science fiction series begins, two immortals meet in the long-ago past—and mankind’s destiny is changed forever. For a thousand years, Doro has cultivated a small African village, carefully breeding its people in search of seemingly unattainable perfection. He survives through the centuries by stealing the bodies of others, a technique he has so thoroughly mastered that nothing on Earth can kill him. But when a gang of New World slavers destroys his village, ruining his grand experiment, Doro is forced to go west and begin anew. He meets Anyanwu, a centuries-old woman whose means of immortality are as kind as his are cruel. She is a shapeshifter, capable of healing with a kiss, and she recognizes Doro as a tyrant. Though many humans have tried to kill them, these two demi-gods have never before met a rival. Now they begin a struggle that will last centuries and permanently alter the nature of humanity. Hugo and Nebula award–winning author Octavia E. Butler’s sweeping cross-century epic places her “among the best of contemporary SF writers” (Houston Chronicle). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate.
