Ignota and Sowilo, Alliance and Council, all smell the coming of war in the wind. As crisis spans the globe, all now grasp for position and resources before the end begins. Old dangers and new perils threaten both sides. Prophecy promises tears will mark the coming of the Sowilo’s savior. And tears there shall be. Rivers and rivers of tears.
So continues the battle to control tomorrow’s history.
Assassination has rocked the Global Alliance. Enemies align, though mistrust gnaws the bonds of fragile alliances. Torrance’s tortured past drives him towards an unwanted future. And a divided rebellion fears casting off the anonymity that has kept it safe for a century. But when the empowered clash, the weak must unite or be crushed. One decision will set the Ignota on an irrevocable course.
In 2163 C.E., the absolute power of the Global Alliance is beginning to unravel. The first threads tugged are small, but possess the potential to undo the tapestry—a tapestry woven two millennia ago in deep shadow and bloody conspiracy. Few remember its origin, and none know the role one man will play. A man who would become both savior and enslaver. A man from the woods. A man named Torrance.
So much sacrificed. So little gained.
Seven years have passed since the outbreak of the Tilian Virus and the effects of the disease devastated the world.
A resilient band of survivors have overcome insurmountable odds. But now, on the brink of human extinction, can hope's dim light be strengthened? Can a cure exist to purge the darkness before the infected complete their domination?
Solace. Shelter. Safety.
For the survivors of the Tilian Virus, they thought their escape would lead them to a new beginning. But the effects of the virus reach far beyond simply infection. A trusted member of the survivors hides a horrible past.
The virus was just the beginning. Now the world must face the Tilian Effect.
The virus spread quicker than anyone could have imagined. Within days, over half the world's population became infected. Now a small band of survivors, led by high school teacher Mike Allard, must learn to live in a world ravaged by the deadly victims of the Tilian Virus.
