I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. This does not in any way affect my review.

The Worker’s Heart was a nice little military conspiracy novel. The main character is from what once was Brazil, and it’s nice to read about someone from outside my usual European/North American settings that flood the market here in the U.S.

In a world where the governments we know were replaced with business conglomerates, Machado is a soldier as part of acquisitions. He doesn’t undergo a big re

I received this book through the Goodreads program in return for a review. This has, in no way, affected my honest opinion/review of this book.

Overall, this was a very fun read. The Worker’s Heart is the first novel set in Megacon Games’ MERCS universe – a near future setting dominated by corporations turned nations.

This is a book set in the world of MERCs. It largely tells the story of Eclison Tavares Jorge Machado, a unit leader in the megacorp of KemVar 'acquisitions' department.

I think this is really the first military conspiracy story I've every read. From what I understand this book acts as a companion to a game series called MERCS, a game I've never heard of before now. I did enjoy the book though and it was nice to see something that was outside the usual settings I usually read, that being European and North American. I think any fan of the MERCS game will like this book, seeing as it ties into the game.
