In all its long history Forge Ruinous has never once fallen to a hostile force.
Even Tankers need down time, and Buzzard Company's Third Platoon has been directed to set up camp within the ancient walls of that most revered fortress.
Freshly delivered from the hell of the Mattakavi offensive, they are looking forward to a short rest before they plunge back into the horrific war waged upon the Imperial Combine by the creature known only as Voice.
But something is not quite right on the surface of Lopama. Or, to be more precise, beneath it. Forge Ruinous should be silent. Forge Ruinous should be still.
It is neither.
Forge Ruinous will be the second of two war stories which expand the novel From Shattered Stars. Previously intended to be a novella, it is now being planned as a standalone novel.
