Publisher's Summary

Linden A. Lewis returns with this next installment of the First Sister Trilogy, perfect for fans of Red Rising, The Handmaid’s Tale, and The Expanse.

Astrid has reclaimed her name and her voice and now seeks to bring down the Sisterhood from within. Throwing herself into the lioness’ den, Astrid must confront and challenge the aunts who run the Gean religious institution, but she quickly discovers that the business of politics is far deadlier than she ever expected.

Meanwhile, on an outlaw colony station deep in space, Hiro val Akira seeks to bring a dangerous ally into the rebellion. Whispers of a digital woman fuel Hiro’s search, but they are not the only person looking for this link to the mysterious race of Synthetics.

Lito sol Lucious continues to grow into his role as a lead revolutionary and is tasked with rescuing an Aster operative from deep within an Icarii prison. With danger around every corner, Lito, his partner, Ofiera, and the newly freed operative must flee in order to keep dangerous secrets out of enemy hands.

Back on Venus, Lito’s sister, Lucinia, must carry on after her brother’s disappearance and accusation of treason by Icarii authorities. Despite being under the thumb of Souji val Akira, Lucinia manages to keep her nose clean...that is until an Aster revolutionary shows up with news about her brother’s fate and an opportunity to join the fight.

This captivating, spellbinding second installment to the First Sister series picks up right where The First Sister left off and is a must-hear for science-fiction fans everywhere.

Narrators detract from the story

I really enjoyed The First Sister book and thought the world was rich and well-developed. Those elements certainly carried over to this book but I found myself feeling lost for the first hour or two because the scope of this book is larger. I probably should have reread the final chapters of The First Sister to refresh my memory of where we left the characters.

I agree with some other reviewers about problematic narrators. I hate it when characters pronounce basic words differently and was really distracted by the narrator for Luce. The character’s first language is Spanish, but the narrator’s Spanish pronunciation was laughably bad.

Ultimately, I got over my issues with the narrators and listened to the full story in just a few days. It was a lot of fun and a good follow-up to the first book in the series!

SO GOOD!

can't wait for book 3! I just wish the quality of the readers was better... the least they could do is make sure all the readers pronounce words the same way/ correctly

Okay what a ride.

Well I was quite surprised.No relationship fell into any cliche which is such a relief.It is not romance focused at all

great story

when I read the reviews for this before purchasing I saw all the comments on the narration and from previous times I sort of dismissed it as overreaction since I've seen that before on other books. I'm am sorry to those reviewers, you were right the different pronunciations is grating. I hope in the third book maybe all the narrator could be given a guide on how to pronounce the words the same way maybe? It really pulls you out of the story for a bit which is unfortunate because the story is excellent. It's been a long time since a story has made me outwardly react to plot twists! looking forward to the third installment!

Absolutely Awful

The first book was.....alright. Not good, but at least it found its rhythm towards the end. The characters grew a bit and stopped whining and agonizing. This book slams the breaks and falls right back into "woe betide unto me" territory.
The prose is inelegant, the setting tedious, and I couldnt give a damn about any of it by the halfway point.
The narrators are universally terrible as well.
zero stars.

Doesn’t disappoint

I’ve been looking forward to this sequel for a year! It’s a seamless continuation from book 1, and I’m going to play it again immediately.
