New friendships are forged, young love blooms, and the partners in crime inch ever closer to the man they seek.

Once normal girls, these eager beauties volunteered to have their bodies genetically-enhanced in order to join the fight against the deadly alien invaders plaguing the planet.

The sequel, Dual Matrix, finds her in an over-charged battle to save her loved ones from an obsessive doctor and his deadly Armitage replicas.
