Vret McClintock, a young channel in training at the world-famous Rialite First Year Camp, sees a dreary life before him until the instant he overhears the voice of Ilin Sumz saying the words he's been thinking - Certainly don't intend to stay a QN-3 for the rest of my life. His ambition awakened by that magical sentence, he sets out to qualify as a QN-2 before he graduates, and to meet the owner of that sexy voice!
In love with her and with her illicit historical fantasies posted on a secret board run on the brand-new campus mainframe computer, Vret risks his future career to extricate Ilin from her web of secrets before they can ruin the careers of others.

When I downloaded this book, I had not read anything from the Sime-Gen universe for years...I was pleasantly surprised at the way the tensions and pacing were kept up, as well as how many Simelan terms came back to me at once without the need for direct explanations or exposition.
I literally listened late into the night and "could not put it down" or turn it off.
I hope to see more of this series reach Audible in the future
All Sime/Gen fans should read this story. I've always wanted to understand more about Channel training and this is it. On top, this is a love story that is sweet without being graphic. My kind of story.
At the end when the Farris channel understand the purpose of Vret actions. If I tell more, it will give the story away.
The Qualifying scene of Vret was my favorite.
It wasn't that kind of book. It did give me pride. Feelings that were evoke from the success of efforts of the main character, Vret.
One of the best narrator's I've heard. He had great inflection and dramatic pausing which is how I would have read the book. The only down was that he didn't know how to pronounce a few of the special Sime/Gen words. That I can forgive when the listening was so intensely pleasurable.
