challenging dark emotional tense medium-paced

Octavia Butler can do no wrong. I'll die on this hill

This was a quick, but tense read. 
Uncontrollable time travel, slavery, family? 

Every time I thought I knew where the story was going, Butler said "ha" and flipped one on me. 

I can see why Kindred is one of her most popular books
