Xenogenesis

Aliens arrive just as humans are destroying themselves in a nuclear war. They save some humans, but will people be able to adapt to living in this new world? Lilith is the first human to be awoken, she gradually learns about the aliens and teaches other humans.

The aliens are not totally benevolent, they have their own reasons for saving humanity. But cooperating with them will lead to a win-win situation. So is cooperation the right choice, or should humans try to fight a hopeless war with the aliens as they do in most other books?

This is a disturbing book, pointing out that sometimes you just need to admit defeat and accept a future you would not have chosen. Freedom isn’t everything, you can choose riches and material comfort instead.
