Metal Heart is Book 1 in a series that follows the exploits of young women and men conscripted into "national service."
Eleni Garza watched her parents die in a terrorist bombing that stopped her heart. Prothero, a shady corporation, saved her life by implanting her with experimental nanotechnology.
To repay that debt, Prothero enlists her in military service.
During a routine combat simulation, strange powers emerge and Eleni discovers she may have a cure for a global virus. She may, in fact, be the cure to the virus.
Now she must escape a heavily fortified military base and deliver the cure to the same terrorist organization that killed her parents.
