Until She Wakes: A Dead Machines Story
Io Suto is a mobile suit pilot, one of the best left alive since the war. She and her small team helped a population of 40,000 migrants and refugees land on a mysterious terraformed planet one star system over from Sol and the destruction there.
You can read some of her stories in Until She Wakes, a novelette telling the events that lead to Io finding her vanguard mobile suit. It’s a story about violence, giant robots, and radical empathy.
