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

1.5 Not so bad
Slow Bullets is a story about a group of people and how they deal with the end of their world. I think, I'm not sure really.

4.0 Forget Me Not
"Slow Bullets" is just the right length and digestibility for a reader who wants a quicker science fiction novel. It's an interesting look at humanity and the hard choices people have to make to survive, and how a common need can help people get past superficial differences.Reviewed for Bitten by Bo...
