December Books 4) Patternmaster, by Octavia E. Butler

I've enjoyed every other book I've read by Octavia Butler, so I'm sorry to say I thoroughly bounced off this one. A future human culture combines psychic slavery with an ongoing struggle against the non-human (or post-human) invaders; I found the conformity of the enslaved, despite their immense supernatural powers, rather implausible, and didn't really follow what was going on politically. Maybe I just wasn't concentrating.
