Wild Seed by Octavia E. Butler is the story of two immortal beings: Doro & Anyanwu. Doro is an entity who changes bodies like clothes, killing his hosts by reflex—or design. He fears no one—until he meets Anyanwu.
Anyanwu is a shapeshifter who can absorb bullets and heal with a kiss… and savage anyone who threatens those she loves. She fears no one—until she meets Doro. From African jungles to the colonies of America, Doro and Anyanwu weave together a pattern of destiny that not even immortals can imagine.
