They once had lives though their few memories are filled only with images of pain and suffering. They are all too aware of the atrocities they were forced to commit in the name of the Empire but are also acutely aware that their only hope of freedom is via facing their pasts.

Very good opening chapter, if slightly long. The layout may make it harder to read that it needs to be, but in terms of story and world building it was a very good first chapter.

PS - If you fancy reading and commenting on the first couple of chapters of my new book I would be very grateful

Plenty of potential here. I read the fisrt draft and already this is showing more polish. Certainly shaping into a good book (possible series?).
The style of writing isn't too heavy on description, allowing the reader to fill in the blanks. In my mind, this helps keep things moving, especially considering the story involves multiple plots.
I'm enjoying it and looking forward to future updates which will hopefully plug a few holes in the original.
Thumbs up!

An interesting premise with an entertaining action-packed beginning. Perhaps some phrases could be polished here and there but overall this is good stuff.
