You must leave as soon as she comes.
No sooner will she come than you must leave.

Does the second sentence have the same meaning as the first? If not, how should I phrase the second sentence?

Thanks.

No native speaker would use the second sentence. We use no sooner about events that happened in the past.

@centrox,
Thanks, centrox.

Can I deduce that "You must leave as soon as she comes" cannot be rephrased with "No sooner..."?

You may deduce that.
