Pfc Bernie Lebna has been through hell.

It’s left a mark.

Now, a random rescue has put a baby in his arms. He’s the only one that seems able to keep her happy and quiet. The Shepherd recruits Bernie for the extraction. No one wants a crying baby.

What should be a simple side mission goes sideways.

Now Bernie must not only struggle with his own fears, but with the safety of a trusting baby girl. Can he save the baby? Can he save himself?

Stories From The Orphan Corps is the formative series of the Orphan Corps. Each is a stand-alone story that helped to define the structure of the Hospitallers and their universe.

The Lost Sheep series explores the role of the Shepherds, a select group of Hospitallers tasked with defending children and looking after the welfare of orphans.
Sgt Kori Eldersun is thrust into the role of Shepherd and finds himself challenged from the word, go.
