Dawn by Octavia E. Butler

"Dawn" is a thought-provoking science fiction novel that explores themes of identity, power, and humanity's capacity for change. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, the story follows Lilith Iyapo, a woman who wakes up after centuries of being in suspended animation to find herself among an alien race called the Oankali. The Oankali offer to help humanity rebuild, but their assistance comes at a cost: interbreeding with them to create a new hybrid species. As Lilith navigates the complex dynamics of her new reality, she must confront her own fears and prejudices while grappling with the moral implications of the choices she faces.
