Crystal Singer Summary & Study Guide Description
A symbiont that protects people on Ballybran enters their bodies upon arrival on the planet and causes an illness within ten days. Those who suffer the illness could also be left with a physical impairment, such as deafness, that will disallow them from becoming crystal singers and force them into a support position that will prevent them from ever leaving the planet. However, the symbiont also keeps the person from growing old and enhances their other senses. Killashandra decides to become a crystal singer despite the dangers.

For the first week, Killashandra and the other recruits attend lectures and help out during a storm, unloading the crystal singer's shuttlecrafts and helping sort their crystals. After ten days, some of the students begin to fall ill with the symbiont fever.
Killashandra, however, makes the transition painlessly and is quickly placed into training for crystal singing. Killashandra moves quickly ahead of the other recruits, causing some resentment. At the same time, Killashandra enters into a romantic affair with the Guild Master, Lanzecki.
