A new military implements a generation of cyborg soldiers, but when a peace treaty comes into play, Jake and his fellow-cyborgs are no longer required. If they are unable to blend in with human civilians, they’ll be decommissioned. Jake’s squad knows exactly what that means, and they know time is running out to prove themselves. What they don’t know is that they’ve already replaced, and they may have one more war to fight.
