"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 which is no longer recognizable. And Scur will be reacquainted with her old enemy, but with much higher stakes than just her own life"--Page 4 of cover.

I enjoyed the book, but at the same time, I'm left wanting. It's a quick read, and I wonder if that isn't working against it—there's not a whole lot of context for the situation the characters are in or the decisions they make. I got the impression we're supposed to feel like the events are pretty grand in scale—they are attempting to rebuild a civilization and maybe more, after all—but the major events in the book had more of a feel of fixing a leaky faucet: Useful and maybe clever, but not really exceptional.

Can't recommend this book at all having read almost everything Reynolds has written. This is one of his poorest efforts. Wouldn't even earn one star is a YA novel.
Weak character development and plot. Don't waste your time.
