Publisher's Summary

The future has amazing technology. Our alien allies have magic. Together, we are building a training system to teach the best of humanity to go to the stars. But the training is monumentally expensive. Stephanie Morgana is a genius, she just doesn't know it. The artificial intelligence that runs the virtual world is charged with testing Stephanie, a task it has never performed before. Will Stephanie pass the test and be moved to the advanced preparatory schools, or will the system miss her? Will the AI be able to judge a human's potential in an area where it has no existing test data to compare?

It was okay but would not reread

The plot is interesting and unique.

Main character is likable when not monologing about social class.

The author spends the first 20ish chapters jackhammering the main issue of social classes onto the reader.

Characters seem unrealistic in some cases, mostly with the mc behaving out of character from what she would normally do.

Fight scenes are confusing and not very exciting.

Can't fault this really but most everything is explained away with "magic, hacking, science " and nothing is ever really explained.

all in all, if you have a spare credit and like si-fi and fantacy, I'd give it a read.

Class Warfare Propaganda w/ a Mary Sue Protaganist

The author takes every, and I do mean EVERY, opportunity to instigate class warfare.

Let's take a step back from the propagandistic viewpoint for a second. The main character is the textbook definition of a Mary Sue.

- Perfect photographic memory? Check.
- Ability to do trigonometry in her head instantly? Check. - Inexplicable ability to master a magic system by making up a chant on the spot? Check.
- Apparently so perfect in her intelligence and political views that she impresses an all powerful AI? Check.

I enjoy a good power trip from time to time. The exploits of Rex in Galaxy's Edge, the alumancers of Mistborn, Shiver from Chaos Seed.

I can actually envision a story where this might actually work. Have the main character who complains about silver spoon wielding trust fund babies realize she is just as, if not moreso, "privileged" because of her inexplicable abilities that she did nothing to earn. But imstead, she keeps right on firing that trebuchet out of her glass house with every syllable.

Politics Are The Way of Scifi

I understand that this is science fantasy but the rule still applies. Science fiction has always had a way of pushing one sort of politics. Its way of experiencing these types of society in the form of a fun story. This is the way it has always been. Star Yrek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Dr. Who, I Robot, and many other Sci-fi stories have explored these things. This story just used something more close to home than some may be comfortable with. I may not be articulate enough to explain the point properly but I gave it a shot. Its a great story with some fun characters who will be right at home in the rest of the rapidly expanding audio library of sci fi that I am building. I am very happy to add Stephanie's story to my collection. She will be a welcome addition to my crew :)

Too Much Political pushing

Far to much pushing of political. The author push it every chance he gets. Its fine if its not throw in your face but this book does it way too much.

Great reader. Horrible story

I enjoy a good overpowered main character story, but this is just ridiculous. Even her being perfectly awesome at all things are does might be bearable if it weren't for the inconsistencies in logic in the story. AIs can't understand magic. Okay. But they can do magical research in AI run vr? How the heck does that work? Tried to finish it, but when she used her powers to assault a guy, who was admittedly being a jerk, by temporarily removing his mouth a then later used her powers experimentally to beat up at man security team I just couldn't go any further.

The idea had promise, and I loved the reader. But there is no way I can finish this, and I won't touch another work from this author.

Zero stars!

This book needed a highly critical beta reader before being published. Such an individual would have advised the author to cut 70 percent of the book and rewrite the remaining 30 percent.
The narrator is good, there’s that much. But then again a good narrator can usually make a bad book tolerable. Not so with this book! That’s how bad it is.

Certainly not for me

I've only listened to the first 5 hours of the book, here is my experience so far.

She as a tendency to go on and on. Especially when it comes to class positioning's and "saving the world". A lot of the stuff in the beginning is about reversing climate change and fixing up the town with magic, or how its so unfair that rich people are getting full scholarships cause they are rich while poor people miss out because they are not. And sure. I agree with all of the above. They are nice feels. But I get it, we can move on now. Please.

This issue isn't relegated to passionate speeches either. We got to sit in an entire conversation between the main character and friend about the French wars in 2100 something and how the rebels failed because whatever the heck. And then there was this big explanatory tangent about super heroes that name dropped thor ragnorok and batman v superman. I honestly didn't know what was happening. My only thought was on how its been well over 100 years since those movies came out and no one should still know what they are.

One last thing of note is how everyone keeps calling the MC a genius with unique opinions when she isn't saying anything everyone doesn't already know and agree with..

There is other stuff too, but I've said enough already.


Ps, I liked the narrator quite a bit. She was very expressive.
