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.
Metal Heart is the first book in a trilogy that follows the exploits of young women and men conscripted into "national service."
This installment focuses on Eleni Garza as she copes with technology implants, her experiences with terrorism, and the search for a cure to the nano virus.
