Includes the novels WILD SEED, MIND OF MY MIND, CLAY'S ARK, PATTERNMASTER
The Patternist series, collected here in one edition, chart an epic secret history that's roots lie in the dawn of civilization, and whose tangled branches reach far into our future.
It begins when two immortals meet. Doro is an entity who changes bodies like clothes, killing his hosts; Anyanwu can change her very shape, absorbing bullets as easily as she can heal with a kiss. Their relationship, albeit as marked by hate as by love, will change the world.
After years of selected breeding, their 'Patternists' are becoming increasing harder to control, and harder to hide from society. They will eventually bring humanity to the brink of extinction and beyond, into a nightmare that Doro and Anyanwu could never have anticipated.
