Den of Geek says: Sisters of the Vast Dark was inventive and far-reaching for a short story, showcasing the space nuns and living ships that return in the sequel.
Editor’s Summary: Not so long ago, Earth’s colonies and space stations cast off the yoke of planet Earth’s tyrannical rule. Decades later, trouble is brewing in the Four Systems, and Old Earth unfolds its power in an effort to regain control of its lost territories.
The Order of Saint Rita―whose mission is to provide aid and mercy to those in need―witnessed and challenged the atrocities of the Central Governance on the distant planet Phyosonga III. The sisters have been racing ever since, staying under the radar while trying to honor their calling.
Despite the sisters’ secrecy, the story of their defiance spreads like wildfire, led by a growing anti-Earth religious movement calling for revolution. Faced with staying silent or talking, the Order of Saint Rita must decide what role they will play – and what hand they will have – in reshaping the galaxy.
