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 * Tor.com * 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 *
