'Wonderfully imaginative and gripping . . . I couldn't put it down' R.F. Kuang, author of The Poppy War

FIRST SISTER HAS NO NAME, AND NO VOICE.

As a priestess of the Sisterhood, she travels the stars alongside the Gean soldiers of Earth and Mars, who own the rights to her body and soul. When her former captain abandons her, First Sister's hopes for freedom are dashed and she is forced to stay on her ship with no friends, no status, and a new captain - Saito Ren - who she knows nothing about.

But Captain Ren has a secret, and First Sister is commanded by the head of her order to find out what it is. What starts as a simple task quickly grows more complicated as First Sister and Ren grow closer, and she realises that sacrificing for the war effort is so much harder to do when your loyalties are split.

LITO VAL LUCIUS HAS NO FAITH, AND NO LOYALTY.

He climbed his way out of the slums to become an elite Icarii soldier of Venus, but was defeated in combat by none other than Saito Ren, resulting in the disappearance of his partner, Hiro. Then Lito discovers that Hiro is both alive and a traitor to the cause.

If Lito hunts down and kills his former partner, he will be offered a shot a redemption. But to do so, Lito must decide where his allegiances lie, and choose between following orders and his heart.

As the war between the Geans and the Icarii reaches a head, Lito and First Sister must decide what - and whom - they are willing to sacrifice in the name of duty, or for love.

Genre: Science Fiction

Praise for this book

"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

"Lewis's The First Sister is a ferocious mix of energetic plotting and vivid characters. Ridiculously readable." - April Genevieve Tucholke
