Told in the haunting voice of Lilith, the heroine of "Dawn", this book is thestory of Lilith's only son, Akin. Though he resembles a normal human, Akin isthe first "construct"—part man/part alien.

Library Journal

The product of alien genetic intervention designed to save humanity by altering its genotypic structure, Akin faces a world of hostile humans who recognize him as the son of the woman who either betrayed or saved the human race. This sequel to Dawn portrays a young man's coming of age in a world forever changed. Recommended where the author has a following. JC
