Tortured Echoes: “a dark, complex, and haunting novel”

The first novel in the Resonant Earth series, Broken Mirror, tells the story of a mentally ill young man, Victor Eastmore who believes his grandfather was murdered. As Victor investigates, he begins to question his own mental state as well as the system of treatment that keeps him one misstep away from institutionalization.

In the sequel, Tortured Echoes, a character who was offstage comes to the fore: Samuel Miller. Samuel killed hundreds of people during a massacre in a small town in Semiautonomous California two decades before the start of the novel—a massacre that Victor lived through as a child. Samuel Miller is also the original “patient zero” for Mirror Resonance Syndrome (MRS).

Victor must confront Samuel and help him manage his condition in order to uncover the truth behind Victor’s grandfather’s death.

Readers may also enjoy the short story prequel to the Resonant Earth saga, Believe and Live, which tells the story of what happened in Carmichael from the perspective of Mía Barrias, a survivor.

Speaking of the characters whose stories play out in the Resonant Earth saga, Sisco said, “The scenes with Samuel and Victor felt electric while I was writing them, and I hope they give a good jolt to readers. Beyond that, we get to see Victor in a new place, interacting with new characters—and some returning favorites!—and stretching his boundaries.”
