Natural Selection

By Malinda Lo

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

An enthralling insight into life in another world, from the acclaimed author of ASH and ADAPTATION.

I was born on Earth, not Kurra. But I'm not human, even though I try to be. My people, the Imria, think I'm unusual because of that. They call me an Earthsider: as if I've crossed a line, chosen a side. Gone native.

Before she fell in love with Reese, before she knew the role she would play in the fate of two worlds, Amber was an Imrian torn between two identities. Imrian by blood, Amber was forced to hide her true self to pass as human.

And even when she returns to Kurra her human experiences, including first love and heartache, still separate her from her fellow Imrians. But now she's going to experience kibila, a traditional Imrian coming-of-age ceremony during which she will choose her name - and her identity.

Malinda Lo's digital-exclusive novella, companion to ADAPTATION and INHERITANCE, gives a deeper understanding of one of their most compelling characters.
