Dawn - Octavia E. Butler Not since Nancy Kress's Beggars in Spain have I been so blown away by a science fiction book. Dawn is the story of Lilith Iyapo, one of the few human survivors of the nuclear war that destroyed the Earth. She is being held aboard a ship by a race of beings called the Oankali, who have rescued humankind and healed the earth. The surviving humans will be returned to the Earth and let free, but at a grave cost to their humanity.This is the kind of book that will have you thinking long after you turn the final page: Are the Oankali our salvation or the agents of our Species' destruction?
