Staff Pick: “The last thing Lilith remembers is the end of the world happening and all of her loved ones dying. And yet, she wakes up on a spaceship hundreds of years later and expected to carry on. It’s hard to say anything new about this one that hasn’t already been said, but be assured that this is an absolutely gripping novel that I read entirely in one sitting, and one of the finest sci-fi novels ever written.” Sarah J.

When Lilith lyapo wakes in a small white room with no doors or windows, she remembers a devastating war, and a husband and child long lost to her. She finds herself living among the Oankali, a strange race who intervened in the fate of humanity hundreds of years before. They spared those they could from the ruined Earth, and suspended them in a long, deep sleep. Over centuries, the Oankali learned from the past, cured disease and healed the world. Now they want Lilith to lead her people back home. But salvation comes at a price – to restore humanity, it must be changed forever…
