The Silence, Paperback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


In the darkness of a underground cave, blind creatures hunt by sound.

Then there is light, voices, and they feed...Swarming from their prison, the creatures thrive; to whisper is to summon death.

As the hordes lay waste to Europe, a girl watches to see if they will cross the sea.

Deaf for years, she knows how to live in silence; now, it is her family's only chance of survival.

To leave their home, to shun others. But what kind of world will be left?

Review by

Ok, so if you are a fan of horror books then you have to check this book out. The Silence is bone-chilling creepy and scary! In a great way. Right from the moment I opened this book I was glued to it. At first I thought this book was going to have the feel of The Descent. The movie about six female friends who go caving and encounter evil creatures. Which this book did have a little bit of this aspect with the creatures but I also pictured this book as being a silent movie. What with Ally being deaf. This twist with making Ally deaf fit in with the story nicely. Actually the idea of taking this book and turning it into a silent movie on the big screen would be cool. This book also had elements of Resident Evil. So if these references don't get you hyped to read this book than I don't know what would, except maybe for the fact that if you can't handle gore then you may not want to read this book.
