Short Synopsis
From the author of the Revelation Space series comes an interstellar adventure of war, identity, betrayal, and the preservation of civilization itself.

Full Synopsis
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.

"The writing is tight, the characters are well developed, and the story itself moves along at a cracking pace." ---Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Corner

"Slow Bullets is classic science fiction, a space opera, a puzzle story, a character study, visionary science fiction, and a prayer for peace." ---Michael Swanwick, author of Tales of Old Earth

"This space opera is narrated by Susan Duerden in a sexy, romantic voice." ---AudioFile

"Highly recommended." ---SFFWORLD
