    "I love Octavia Butler's writing and this book was my first exposure to her many years ago. Loved it so much that I had to get the kindle version. I highly recommend it as even her short stories are complex and make you think. It's so rare to read a collection of shorts without wanting to skip at least one or two. This is a collection of stories you can read from cover to cover, including the essays. Bloodchild and Other Stories is a fantastic read"

    "Imago is the third book in the Xenogensis Series written by Ocatvia Butler. This is a good science fiction young adult book and the trilogy will pull you in. Read book three to find out the fate of both the humans and the Oankali and how they rest on the successful transition from youth to adult."

    "The first time I read this book, I identified with Anyanwu, the shapeshifter. Her fearlessness spoke to me on a primal level. On my second read through, however, I seem to be fancying Doro more than Anyanwu. I understand his intentions much clearer the second read."
