Mind of My Mind - Patternist, Bk 2 Author:Octavia E. Butler A young ghetto telepath launches a psychic struggle against the four-thousand-year-old immortal who has been her father, lover, master, and creator to free her fellow telepaths.
For four thousand years, an immortal has spread the seeds of an evolutionary master race, using the downtrodden of the underclass as his private breeding stock. But now a young ghetto telepath has found the way to awaken -and rule- her superhuman kind, igniting a psychic battle from L.A, mansions to South Central slums, as she challenges her creatoe for the right to free her people..... And enslave the Earth.
A companion book to Wild Seed, also about Doro. Octavia Butler is a brilliant writer (her Lilith\'s Brood is a classic). This isn\'t her best novel (the focus is on psychic powers and psychic suffering) but her characters are compelling and original and her books are hard to put down.
