Droids and Dragons

The Droids and Dragons Book Club will discuss Borne by Jeff VanderMeer (MCD, $15.00). A young woman named Rachel survives as a scavenger in a ruined city half destroyed by drought and conflict. Rachel finds Borne and takes him home. Borne as salvage is little more than a green lump--plant or animal?--but exudes a strange charisma. Borne reminds Rachel of the marine life from the island nation of her birth, now lost to rising seas.  As Borne grows, he begins to threaten the balance of power in the city and to put her security at risk. What Borne will lay bare to Rachel as he changes is how precarious her existence has been, and how dependent on subterfuge and secrets. In the aftermath, nothing may ever be the same.
