The third book in the Xenogenesis trilogy.
The futures of both humans and Oankali rest on one young being's successful metamorphosis into adulthood.
As his body changes, Jodahs develops the ability to shapeshift, manipulate matter, and cure or create disease at will. If this frightened young man is able to master his new identity, Jodahs could prove the savior of what’s left of mankind. Or, if he is not careful, he could become a plague that will destroy this new race once and for all.
Child of two species, but part of neither, a new being must find its way.
