Redemption Rift is a novel by Jason Schmetzer that was originally published as a four-part serial on BattleCorps. Describing Wolf's Dragoons as they fight against the Federated Suns in the employ of the Draconis Combine, the novella makes frequent references to the events from Wolves on the Border (which featured a similar setup a century earlier), to the point of characters frequently referring to the near-mythical events that occurred between Wolf's Dragoons and House Kurita just prior to the Fourth Succession War.

It was later re-released as combined ebook which was also available as a Publish on Demand (PoD) printed novel. The front page shows a moment of the Battle of Glenmora. Captain's Nina Slade Hellstar's BattleMech appears in the first term, in front of a Davion Scourge she downed. Captain Nathan Castle's Cauldron-Born can be seen in second term. [1]
