In an epic, game-changing, moving and brilliant story of love and hate,
two immortals chase each other across continents and centuries, binding
their fates together -- and changing the destiny of the human race (Viola
Davis). Doro knows no higher authority than himself. An ancient spirit with
boundless powers, he possesses humans, killing without remorse as he jumps
from body to body to sustain his own life. With a lonely eternity ahead of
him, Doro breeds supernaturally gifted humans into empires that obey his
every desire. He fears no one -- until he meets Anyanwu. Anyanwu is an
entity like Doro and yet different. She can heal with a bite and transform
her own body, mending injuries and reversing aging. She uses her powers to
cure her neighbors and birth entire tribes, surrounding herself with
kindred who both fear and respect her. No one poses a true threat to
Anyanwu -- until she meets Doro. The moment Doro meets Anyanwu, he covets
her; and from the villages of 17th-century Nigeria to 19th-century United
States, their courtship becomes a power struggle that echoes through
generations, irrevocably changing what it means to be human.
