When Lilith lyapo wakes from a centuries-long sleep, she finds herself aboard the vast spaceship of the Oankali.

After learning all they could about Earth and its beings, the Oankali healed the planet, cured cancer, increased human strength, and they now want Lilith to lead her people back to Earth--but salvation comes at a price.
