by Tim Lebbon
Tim Lebbon unleashes his next novel of horror, The Silence on April 14th. A terror-filled story of one family and their friends, as they struggle to survive in a world overrun by ravenous creatures that hunt purely by sound...
In the darkness of an underground cave system, blind creatures hunt by sound. Then there is light, there are voices, and they feed…
Swarming from their prison, the creatures thrive and destroy. To scream, even 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 many 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, 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?
Paperback: 400 pages

"The degradation of modern society as the swarm moves on is reminiscent of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road. Fans of environmental horror such as Stephen King’s The Mist and creature feature horror flicks will no doubt love the end of the world as we knew it and the beginning of Tim Lebbon’s new one" - Hell Notes
