    blog goodreads Most of us don t believe in gods and spirits and devils who must be pleased or feared We have Doro, and he s enough. What can I say about Wild Seed that could come anywhere close to doing it justice This is the story of how Doro met Anyanwu, the only living soul on Earth who could possibly match his will test his patience, endure his passive cruelty, and time and again defy him in ways even she could not
