"Non-stop action! Space battles! Intrigue! This is the kind of space opera that I love best—but Elliott does it even better."—New York Times bestselling author Ann Leckie
New York Times bestselling author Kate Elliott brings us a thrilling new science fiction adventure set in a rich universe full of political intrigue with Unconquerable Sun.
GENDER-SPUN ALEXANDER THE GREAT ON AN INTERSTELLAR SCALE
Princess Sun has finally come of age.
Growing up in the shadow of her mother, Eirene, has been no easy task. The legendary queen-marshal did what everyone thought impossible: expel the invaders and build Chaonia into a magnificent republic, one to be respected—and feared.
But the cutthroat ambassador corps and conniving noble houses have never ceased to scheme—and they have plans that need Sun to be removed as heir, or better yet, dead.
To survive, the princess must rely on her wits and companions: her biggest rival, her secret lover, and a dangerous prisoner of war.
Take the brilliance and cunning courage of Princess Leia—add in a dazzling futuristic setting where pop culture and propaganda are one and the same—and hold on tight:
This is the space opera you’ve been waiting for.

Elliott (Throne of Eldraine: The Wildered Quest) launches a space opera trilogy with this impeccable coming-of-age adventure that draws inspiration from classic sci-fi, pop-culture, and the life of Alexander the Great. When 20-year-old Princess Sun, heir to the queen-marshal of the Republic of Chaonia, returns to court from her heroic command in battle, she's disappointed to be sent back out on a handshake-and-visibility tour with her Companions, representatives of Chaonia's seven Core Houses. Elsewhere, transportation engineer Persephone is preparing to finish her training at the Central Defense Cadet Academy only to have her plans upended by treacherous family drama. Instead of getting her degree, Perse is instated as one of Sun's new Companions. The two women must work together to untangle myriad political machinations among Chaonian society, thwart an invasion from the Phene empire, and regain their personal independence, all under the watchful eye of Channel Idol, a popular streaming news and entertainment network. Elliott gracefully juggles multiple story lines and perspectives while delving into deeply personal themes and probing political issues of power and bias. Rich with history, tongue-in-cheek humor, cultural references, and vibrant characters, this highly entertaining series launch will have readers clamoring for more.
