A vast conflict, one that has encompassed hundreds of worlds and solar systems, appears to be finally at an end. A conscripted soldier is beginning to consider her life after the war and the family she has left behind. But for Scur - and for humanity - peace is not to be.
On the brink of the ceasefire, Scur is captured by a renegade war criminal and left for dead in the ruins of a bunker. She revives aboard a prisoner transport vessel. Something has gone terribly wrong with the ship.
Passengers - combatants from both sides of the war - are waking up from hibernation far too soon. Their memories, embedded in bullets, are the only links to a world that is no longer recognizable. And Scur will be reacquainted with her old enemy but with much higher stakes than just her own life.
"A fine example of the true science fictionist's art." (Michael Bishop, author of A Funeral for the Eyes of Fire)

Narration is awful!!

Not really a story
I do like the books of Alastair Reynolds but in this case, whilst the story premise was okay, nothing really happens. Even to describe this as a short story is being generous.
