Ghost Story is told to the reader by Io Suta, a Mech pilot and hero of Dead Machine, the first story in this series.

Until She Wakes

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.
