What it's about: This polyam sci-fi debut stars 18-year-old Zetian, a fearsome pilot bent on avenging her sister's death by teaming up with the copilot who killed her. In a society that sacrifices the girls on these robot-piloting teams in a war against mecha aliens, no one expects Zetian to use the psychic link between her and her male copilot to kill him. Now, she's been dubbed an "Iron Widow," a rare girl who's able to turn the tables on these missions, and it's landed her with Li Shimin, the most daunting and controversial pilot in Huaxia. But Zetian refuses to cower, and she's going to get to the bottom of why misogyny powers the system, and how to stop it.
