Reviews:
  • Vishura
I love this book. She is such a business woman, she is also seen in Zelrod's doom and is a great character there too.
  • Deeroman
This is my favorite book in this series. It tells of how people need to learn to work together despite their differences.
  • Jare
This book is one of my favorites in the Sime~Gen world as it follows a strong female Sime from being the daughter of a store-keeper to her final destiny. A well written story that will be re-read from time to time.
  • IGOT
I love all the GEN/SIME Series
  • Coron
This novel is one of my favorites! It's also a good entry point to the Sime~Gen series, a sprawling long-running SF series with a fascinating setup:

Humanity has mutated into two subspecies: energy producers (Gens) and energy consumers (Simes). The Simes must obtain new energy (selyn) from a gen once a month or they die horribly; they have tentacles on their wrists that make selyn transfer possible. Unfortunately, if the Gen is frightened when the Sime does this, a backlash effect causes him to die and the Sime gets addicted to the sensation of killing. To add to the fun, before puberty there's no way to know if a child will be a Sime or a Gen; new Gens in Sime territories tend to get killed for their selyn, while new Simes in Gen territories tend to get murdered by mobs, either before or after they kill relatives or friends in First Need.

In the aftermath of the spread of this mutation, civilization undergoes a complete collapse followed by a slow rebuilding. In that sense, these are post-apocalyptic stories, but they don't "feel" like most post-apocalyptic fiction you run into these days. In fact, the general tone feels more like pioneer-era fiction to me.

The novel follows a young Sime woman, Risa, as she encounters a Gen she cannot kill: he is a Companion in a Householding - a group of Simes and Gens who have found a way to live together without killing. Certain Simes, called Channels, have discovered that they can take selyn from any Gen without pain, and then give it to other Simes. Most Simes - including Risa - consider this to be a perversion. Risa, the Householding, and the surrounding Sime community all learn from one another and grow in understanding throughout the story.

Be warned, however: starting a book like this in the evening can lead to severe tiredness the next day!

Risa Tigue was the daughter of a successful Norlea businessman, and well on the way to becoming a top-notch businesswoman in her own right -- until the day a hurricane turned her world upside-down. Her father died before her eyes, voiding the precious life-energy that every Sime must have. Risa herself survived only by draining her own supply of that life-energy to the limit, consuming it to give her the extra strength essential to get safely to shore. Now she must hunt a Gen, a member of the other half of humanity that provides life-energy.
That hunt puts her straight into the arms of an extraordinary individual -- a Gen like no other she had known. A Gen who is not drugged livestock or wild barbarian, but a man who speaks her own language and literally invites her into his shelter. A Gen who can give his life-energy and not die, but become stronger and healthier from the giving -- and who recognizes her as having the precious sub-mutation that makes his lifestyle possible. If only he can convince her to turn her back on the killer lifestyle she grew up with, he may yet save his imperiled community.
And that's just the beginning of an intricate dance of move and counter-move as Risa Tigue and Sergi ambrov Keon come to terms with one another and explore the meaning of freedom in a world where invisible chains bind everyone.
This novel has been out of print for years, and almost impossible to find, but Meisha Merlin is now reprinting it as part of the Unity Trilogy omnibus, along with House of Zeor and Zelerod's Doom. If you missed out on the original, or if your copy is crumbling like mine is, don't miss this opportunity to get the new edition.

Ambrov means "dedicated to" -- and Keon means "Freedom".
Ambrov Keon belongs to a series of novels set in Jacqueline Lichtenberg's Sime~Gen Universe (not Sime/Gen anymore but for the web-based era, Sime~Gen) which will be reprinted. Ambrov Keon is part of the first trilogy which will be bound together under the title The Unity Trilogy, and available on amazon summer of 2003. Plans call for both hc and trade paperback editions because the fans have desperately wanted these books on acid free paper for years. Any changes in plan will be posted on the Sime~Gen Universe's website.
Risa Teague is a young adult woman who has just watched her father drown during a hurricane on the Mississippi River. She knows very well and precisely WHO she is -- a successful merchant's daughter, skilled and talented enough to take over her father's business and run it as well as he did -- but she has no clue in all creation of WHAT she is.
Stumbling away from the river's edge, groping blindly through the terrifying storm, she crashes into the life of a man who has just lost his best friend and admired leader to the storm. He saves her life, and in the process recognizes exactly WHAT she is. So he takes her home with him.
That's four strikes against any Romance developing between them -- and it's not love at first sight, believe me.
Read this novel and go with Risa Teague through the process of discovering WHAT she is, and just WHO this exasperating (and utterly irresistible) man is.
She's an honorable woman who can not and will not leave this man before paying her debt to him for saving her life. But she deeply and sincerely wants to get away -- she has a good life waiting for her, and wants no part of this man's business. She plots, and manipulates, connives and organizes until she's free of her obligation -- and then makes the most devastating discovery of all.
This is Jean Lorrah's writing at her best -- and if you've read Jean's Star Trek novels, you know that's going some! The Sime~Gen universe online has an active, growing and thriving fandom on simegen.com where you can read samples and whole novels free and pick up the new publication news and meet the authors personally.
Live Long and Prosper,
