Torrance (Scars of Tomorrow Book 1)

Author(s): Tom Calen

In the year 2060—after decades of war, famine and financial collapse—individual nations ceased to exist, borders were blurred, different currencies were abandoned, and the new world order was complete. The dominion of the Global Alliance, ruled by the heads of the Five Families, had begun.

Now, over a century later, the power of the Global Alliance is absolute. Every aspect of daily life brings the Families more power and more profit. Though there are internal struggles within the Families, the world is enjoying history’s longest stretch of peace. Even crime is nearly non-existent—due to the SID chip implanted in every citizen at birth. Banking and shopping are now controlled through the simple swipe of a hand, and the world’s citizens are pacified in a haze of security and consumerism. 

But when the man overseeing the launch of the SID upgrade discovers a fatal design flaw, the government quickly silences him. His children, eighteen-year-old Danica Seton and her thirteen-year-old brother Marcus, are forced to run as agents of the Global Alliance hunt them. Their frantic flight will lead them into the company of a pale-skinned man with a dark history. 

Dr. Sonje Nysgaard, a colleague of the children’s father and likewise aware of the flaw, narrowly escapes the attempt on her life. Hiding from Alliance soldiers, she finds herself under the protection of a terrorist organization dedicated to the overthrow of the Alliance and the Families.

These distractions are ill timed for Kerwen Garrott, the head, or Caput, of his Family. With the unveiling of the Peacekeeper drones, the world’s first fully automated soldier, the Garrott name has risen high—thus attracting the distrust and contempt of the other Families. And as Caput Garrott struggles to navigate the treacherous politics of the Alliance, the terrorists have marked him as their next target.

The first threads tugged are small, but possess the potential to unravel the whole tapestry—a tapestry carefully woven two millennia ago in deep shadow and bloody conspiracy. Few remember its origin, and none can predict the role one man will play in what is to come. A man who would become both savior and enslaver. A man from the woods. A man named Torrance. 

So begins the story of the Scars of Tomorrow.

Seven years ago, the Tilian Virus swept across the globe. In its wake, billions fell horribly ill…but they did not die. Death would have been a blessing. Instead, friends and loved ones regressed to a primitive state of existence; consumed with one driving instinct—survival. But it was not just the virus’ victims who had changed. 

The world’s few remaining survivors were forced to adapt as well. Teachers and students, farmers and politicians began their own struggle to survive in a world...
