In "First," join Lewis in his quest to pioneer interstellar travel, battling adversity and a ticking clock to safeguard the future of humanity.
Winner of the 18th Annual National Indie Excellence Award for Best Science Fiction Novel as well as the Reader Views Literary Award Silver Medal for Best Science Fiction Book of 2023 and the Gold Medal for Best Book of any genre set in the US Mountain West region! Lewis is a rookie astronaut for SpaceFirst, a company headed for the stars. They race against rival corporation Deep Sky to be the first in history to send a person from Earth to another star system and bring them home safely. Along with four teammates and his new AI, Lewis prepares for humanity's first push into the galaxy. The journey from SpaceFirst headquarters to Proxima Centauri includes triumph, loss, competition, and a friendship with the promise of more. But then it all goes wrong. Lewis is the first human to travel to another star system. Unless he can find a way home, it might end up being a one-way trip. "The novel that's going to be a break-out hit this year...a mind-blowing, perception-altering, unputdownable book...truly a novel not to be missed." - Reader Views
