No Sister of Mine
Taelach Sisters Novel #1
LaRenna Belsas had always dreamed of the Kimshee lifestyle. These silent serving sisters of the Taelach military were known as much for their reckless mannerisms as they were honored for the dangers they faced bringing Taelach daughters to their raisers. LarRenna looked forward to taking her place among them, even though it meant an apprenticeship under an experienced Kimshee. Or would it?
No Sister of Mine is the first entry in a series of lesbian Science Fiction novels set in a world where humans are nothing more than a genetic trace. But that trace has left its mark—namely a race of telepathic women who must fight to coexist with a patriarchal humanoid society who wishes nothing more than the eradication of its “white witch” cousins.
Winner of a Golden Crown Literary Society Award for Excellence in Speculative Fiction and short-listed for a Lambda Literary Society award.
“G’Fellers’ first book, “No Sister of Mine”, shines as a well-constructed SF book with a lesbian protagonist. The author does not let the romance aspect overshadow the thrill and adventure of an SF story, yet the romance is integral to the story. G’Fellers manages to create an intense love story beneath a thrilling tale of culture clash, terror, and revenge. Even the villain is fascinating and terrifying.
This is not a tale for the squeamish. Bad things happen in this tale, but it is by far one of the best in its genre and well-deserving of the 2006 Goldie award (SF category), finalist status for the Lambda Literary Foundation SF award, and nominated for a Gaylactic Spectrum Award.” – Amazon reviewer
