Bloodchild

Bloodchild: And Other Stories - Octavia E. Butler

by Octavia Butler

 

A dark science fiction story that begins a series. It gets a little squirmy but an interesting study in choices and symbiotic relationships with an alien species.

The names suffered from the overly unusual aspects that some readers complain about in Fantasy novels, but this reminded me of Alien, the Go'auld of Stargate and other SciFi stories.

 

Not a bad read, but I won't be following the series.
