A nation engulfed in endless war. Troops die faster than they can be replaced. The military raises its veterans from the dead, including Evie’s grandfather. She copes with his sudden appearance and departure, but her grandfather’s return to the battlefield pushes Evie’s mother to the crushing grief she felt when he died the first time. Evie will find a way to help and die—or kill—trying. Originally published in Fantasy Magazine.
