Soldiers are broken into light and sent to the front-line of a brutal interplanetary war, in this brilliant military SF from the Hugo Award-winning author of The Stars Are Legion.
The corporate corps transform their soldiers into light to travel between interplanetary battlegrounds. Most grunts make it in one piece, though some don’t, and others come back… different.
Fresh infantry recruit, Dietz, is keen to fight and claim her corporate citizenship, but when she’s busted into light it seems like her combat drops are out of sync with everyone else’s. Is Dietz experiencing the war differently, or is it combat stress bending her mind?
As she struggles to untangle her timeline, Dietz glimpses a very different war than in the corporate propaganda, one that needs a hero, or maybe a villain, truth is the first casualty of war.
