After the destruction of Earth, humanity created a fighting elite to save their species, enhanced humans such as Idris. In the silence of space, they could communicate spirit to spirit with the enemy. Then their alien attackers, the Architects, simply vanished and Idris and his ilk became obsolete.

Today, fifty years later, Idris and his crew have discovered something strange abandoned in space. This is clearly the work of the Architects, but are they coming back? And if so, why ? Hunted by gangsters, cults and governments, Idris and his crew scour the galaxy in search of answers. For they now have something of untold value, which many would kill to get.

Den of Geek says: The first volume of the series, The first sister, approached space opera through the lens of dangerous women and dangerous structures that both shape, empower and restrict them.

Throwing herself into the lioness den, Astrid must face and challenge the aunts who run the religious institution Gean, but she quickly discovers that the affairs of politics are far more murderous than she ever imagined.
