We’re thrilled to share the cover of For the First Time, Again, the closing chapter in Sylvian Neuvel’s acclaimed Take Them to the Stars trilogy—arriving April 2023 from Tordotcom Publishing.

“Exciting, thought-provoking, and ultimately shocking… I’m in for the ride to the very end!” —James Rollins on A History of What Comes Next

When a discreet First Contact scenario develops into a potential invasion, humanity must rely on an alien species already living among us, for help.

When you don’t know The Rules it’s hard to stay safe.

After a traumatic incident, Aster finds that her blood work comes back with some unusual readings. Unsurprising, as she’s the last of an alien race called the Kibsu, though she doesn’t know it.

She finds herself the focus of a hunt, with her mortal enemies, the Trackers, on one side, and the American government on the other. But help has come from a most unexpected quarter.

Whoever finds her first, it won’t be good news for Aster, or for the world!

Sylvain Neuvel has taught linguistics in India and worked as a software engineer in Montreal. He is also a certified translator, though he wishes he were an astronaut. His girlfriend would have him believe that he has too many toys, so he writes about aliens and giant robots as a blatant excuse to build action figures (for his son, of course). His debut, Sleeping Giants, was described by NPR as “one of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory.”
