Ha! That’s a bit misleading because I #AMREADING at least 3 books right now. This one is standing out for me though.
I don’t typically like to start another book before I’ve finished one, but I find this happens to me now that my blog has grown. I’m not complaining, just that it seems to be necessary if I want to put a dent in my ever-growing TBR mountain. That said, there will always be at least one book that stands apart from the others, and this time it’s this one.
The Silence by Tim Lebbon (Release Date: April 2015)
In the darkness of a vast cave system, cut off from the world for millennia, blind creatures hunt by sound. Then there is light, there are voices, and they feed… Swarming from their prison, they multiply and thrive. To scream, even to whisper, is to summon death.
Deaf for many years, Ally knows how to live in silence. Now, it is her family’s only chance of survival. To leave their home, to shun others, to find a remote haven where they can sit out the plague. But will it ever end? And what kind of world will be left?
Both are awesome series! So, I figure this has got to be good if its got an endorsement from a horror/ thriller author of Mayberry’s calibre.
I’m about a 1/3 of the way through and so far it’s pretty cool! I love “Creature Features” and there are some gnarly creatures in this.
In addition to these primordial creatures, there are also meaningful sub-plots involving rich and deeply layered characters. Translation: There is a lot more going on than just the disaster element of the story.
Anyway, I’m enjoying it and it makes for a great read during the month of October, otherwise known as the “Best Month of the Year”.
Let me know if you’ve read it. I’d love to hear your opinion!
