Lilith’s Brood is Octavia Butler’s Xenogenesis trilogy comprising the three titles Dawn, Adulthood Rites, and Imago. The books were published in 1987, 88, and 89, with the first compilation of the three as a unit – which is how I have read them. Given what I know about the speed (or lack thereof) of the publishing industry, I suspect that when she sold this trilogy originally, all three stories were already complete. In a way, I’d love to review the books as such, but given their density, it’s going to have to be one at a time.
These books are complicated. These will not be short reviews.
