Just like the others in the series, I ripped through this book in only a few sittings punctuated by academic reading. It's incredible how well the details of this story fit in with the at the time unwritten prequels which speaks to the huge expansive vision that Butler had when she came up with the story and the world. I really liked the character of Teray, but I LOVED Amber. Her desire to remain independent and not tied to a man was awesome. I loved how their relationship developed, and the way Butler described their mental interactions with each other. Because I had read the other books in the series, I was pretty sure I knew how it was going to end but I still was on the edge of my seat anyway.
Overall, the Patternmaster series is really interesting and quite disturbing at times. While these are deeply violent books, almost no physical fighting occurs. Most of the confrontations happen between the minds of the telepaths. The way that Butler is able to describe epic "mind battles" and make it seem suspenseful is incredible. I also liked reading this book and seeing how the events of Clay's Ark tied in because at the time that story seemed pretty random.
If you're only going to read one book in the series, read Wild Seed because it's the most mature of the stories in terms of thoughtful meditation on race, sex, and power dynamics.
