Synopsis:

In a violent near-future, Asa Elias Doyle and her companions encounter an alien life form so heinous and destructive, they exile themselves in the desert so as not to contaminate other humans. To resist the compulsion to infect others is mental agony, but to succumb is to relinquish humanity and free will. Desperate, they kidnap a doctor and his two daughters as they cross the wasteland...and endanger not only their victims, but the world.


Review:

"Suffice it to say that the aliens in CLAY'S ARK are closer to home than most invaders in science fiction, but no less frightening. Yet Mrs. Butler is so even handed in her characterizations and so accomplished in her action scenes that each radical reassessment of the situation served to widen and deepen my sympathies.
Life as we know it struggles to survive, often at the expense of its neighbors. Can an Earthbound morality embrace the imperative of survival on a cosmic scale even as its home base is being violated by the competition? Readers familiar with Ms. Butler's earlier books, like PARABLE OF THE SOWER and BLOODCHILD will recall that she never asks easy questions or settles for easy answers."

Gerald Jonas, New York Times Book Review, 12/29/1996
