Army Specialist Bobby Ty considers her deployment to be all fun and games. That is, until an in-development armor prototype goes missing and she's accused of stealing it. No matter her protests of innocence, Ty's leadership hangs her out to dry with twenty-four-hour duty. It gets even harder to plead her case when the missing prototype ends up on her wrist hours later. To make things even worse, her base is attacked by unknown assailants. During the indirect fire, as Ty flees to safety, she slips and faints into a spaceship hidden in a timely open crevice. 

When she wakes up, she finds herself on a new planet where a new species hold dominance.
      
A species that does not like her claim to humanity. Who states Earth is a creation believed by fools. Who go so far as o denounce her sanity and lock her up. 
      
In the midst of her confusion, a Universe-wide war threatens to either be her salvation or her death. It is here in battle that Ty realizes she is more than a lost space traveler with unfortunate luck. There's a bigger strategy at play, one millenniums in the making, where the fate of Earth and the Universe rests on the shoulders of Bobbie Ty, a human out of time, and that strange armor prototype with a mind of its own.

riddled the land, some close enough to feel the heat from the devilish weapons.

With the word prototype, this is my kind of story. Reading on!

Just a suggestion: have you thought about making this chapter 1 and sprinkling the info from the original chapter 1 across the book, leaving us in mystery?

Question: if this prototype's existence is Top Secret, would everyone know it's missing?

                              "...I had sought out a restroom,  a real restroom[,] after sweating in my body armor all day."
                              Because "a real restroom" is an extra modifier it's an appositive and therefore should be enclosed in commas, which was why I added one.

 #NBR why is this significant? "We were a male and female duo, alone in broad daylight." Can you expand that or give me as the reader  more  information?
