'I couldn't put it down' R.F. Kuang, author of The Poppy War FIRST SISTER HAS NO NAME, AND NO VOICE. Forced to travel the stars alongside the Gean soldiers of Earth and Mars, she lacks control over her own destiny. Until an enigmatic, and secretive, new captain - Saito Ren - joins her ship and opens her eyes to a dangerous new path. LITO VAL LUCIUS HAS NO FAITH, AND NO LOYALTY. An elite Icarii soldier of Venus, he was thrown into disgrace after the sudden disappearance of his partner, Hiro. Then Hiro is discovered alive, and a traitor, and Lito is offered a shot at redemption: but only if he hunts down and kills his former partner in cold blood. As the war between the Geans and the Icarii reaches a head, Lito and the First Sister must decide what - and whom - they are willing to sacrifice in the name of duty, or for love.

Reviews for First Sister (#1 First Sister Trilogy)

A feminist space opera that blends social commentary with the cosmic magic of space . . . an introspective tale of humanity and who is allowed to define it * The Mary Sue * This is a book that will leave you itching for the next installment, rooting for your favorite characters (or couples), and impatient to jump back into this world * Rainbow Round Table * This is a great science-fiction debut of incredible scope that should appeal to all fans of the genre. I'm looking forward to seeing where is goes next. Highly recommended * Never Imitate * If you're a fan of sci-fi rebels with strong female protagonists, this is a must read! * SciFi & Scary * An enjoyable queer space opera romp with a dark underbelly * * Lewis's The First Sister is a ferocious mix of energetic plotting and vivid characters. Ridiculously readable * April Genevieve Tucholke, author of The Boneless Mercies * Lewis skillfully handles the tale's many moving pieces, maintaining pace, nuance, and clarity throughout. Lewis's lush prose creates an immersive, richly textured world with complex social dynamics and solid LGBTQ and multicultural representation * Publishers Weekly * Debut of the month . . . A layered, action-filled plot and diverse characters create a powerful entry into the space opera genre * Library Journal * Wonderfully imaginative and gripping - Lewis's debut sucks you in from the very first scene and keeps you absorbed in a rollercoaster of high-octane action and devastating twists. Her prose is rich and assured; her characters complex and compelling. I couldn't put it down * R.F. Kuang, author of The Poppy War *
