    Doro is an entity who changes bodies like clothes, killing his hosts by reflexor design. He fears no one...until he meets Anyanwu. Anyanwu is a shapeshifter who can absorb bullets and heal with a kiss and savage anyone who threatens her. Together they weave a pattern of destiny unimaginable to mortals.

    Overall

    I love listening to stories whenever I have to drive a long distance, so this is one of the stories that I listened to on the way back from a really long trip. I have read Octavia Butler's work before, so I wasn't surprised how much I enjoyed it. What did surprise me, is how much I enjoyed listening to in on cd. The narrator of this book brought the scenes and characters to life. It kept me involved and interested. This audible shows how a good book coupled with a great narration gives you something you truly enjoy.

    One thing I can say, as I have a 10 year old son. I am glad that he slept 98 percent of the trip as this was NOT a story that a child can listen to. My son isn't an ordinary child of books, as reading far above his age, often reading teen novels, but this was way too graphic for even him. I found myself pausing the book whenever I had to wake him. But do not let it deter you from listening to it!! It is one book that will be hard to pause :).
