Lines of Thunder: The First Days on the Front

Gole Naremsa is a raw recruit, new to the trenches of the eternal front. Despite a lifetime of training and a genetic inheritance that makes him a born warrior, it’s not what he imagined.

The enemy wants to kill him -- that’s to be expected. The Pollution wants to fight everyone in sight -- business as usual. The problem is that Gole's own sergeant wants him dead too. One blindly thrown punch, one minor accident with a noisy corpse, and now he’s an example for all the other recruits.

It’s shaping up to be a race between who will kill Gole first: the increasingly dangerous enemy or his own unit. At least the enemy isn’t rude about it.
