THE FOUNDING OF THE HOUSE OF ZEOR. The multi-­generation saga of the founding of the legendary House of Zeor, that began with Rimon Farris's story in First Channel (Sime~Gen, Book Three), continued with the story of Rimon's son, Zeth Farris, Channel's Destiny (Sime~Gen, Book Five), now culminates with the story of Zeth's son, Del Rimon Farris, in The Farris Channel (Sime~Gen, Book Twelve). The Sime~Gen Series is the story of the House of Zeor, an institution that spans thousands of years and shapes human future history. The power behind its longevity and success is the love of two Souls who meet lifetime after lifetime, in tragedy and triumph, amidst an ever-­growing cadre of friends, enemies, and supporters. But like real people everywhere, few of these Souls have any inkling of what they did to deserve their fates--­or what to do to make things better. The greatest among them can only guess--­and pay the price for their actions. Here is the price that Del Rimon Farris pays to . . .

Romeo and Juliet with a mutation instead of a family feud.
Two children on the verge of adolescence, greatly in love with each other, discover the adult world that will tear them apart. Living in a Sime world, the young man grows up to become a Sime – a mutant human who must kill a Gen every month to survive. The young woman grows up to become Gen, the human prey of all Simes.
But, despite the social and physical Need to Kill, the young man refuses to Kill this young woman, his best friend. We watch this pair try to find a place they can live together. Wherever they go, either Rimon or Kadi is considered inhuman and sentenced to die.
Until they find Fort Freedom. The inhabitants of Fort Freedom are the children of Gens, who turned Sime and managed to escape into Sime Territory. We see them forced to kill to live – and hating that need. Rimon and Kadi try to teach others to live without killing. Tragically, we see experiment after experiment fail – except for a very . . .
