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?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"I liked the book's focus, its decision to not sugar-coat the catastrophe, and the way each chapter began with a snippet of an interview or Twitter feed, which let the reader know what was happening on a global scale. There is both hope and despair." - Project Fandom

"Fans of zombie literature from Max Brooks to Robert Kirkman will appreciate the family's growing desperation and frustration as they flee the city and race headlong into the unknown, facing increasingly difficult odds." - Barnes & Noble

"To say I'm impressed is an understatement. He adeptly delivers a story that has terror, mystery, tension, and even sorrow, and even with all the monsters literally flying all over the place, it all feels very realistic. I can't see this not being one of my favorite books this year." - Horrortalk

"This is an A-grade story that grips the reader's attention from page one. Lebbon breathes life into his characters in a manner very few are capable. He manages to create highly stimulating conflicts and tremendously gratifying resolutions, and it is truly addictive." - Horror Novel Reviews

"A compelling tale of survival and true grit." - Mystery Scene

"A deep, emotionally driven novel that has just enough creature-feature heebie-jeebies to make it as much fun as it is captivating, The Silence makes the grade as one of the better apocalyptic horror novels you will read." - Ravenous Monster

"The horror works well, and the monsters are legitimately scary, as are the lengths some people will go in an effort to survive." - Bricks of the Dead

"Tim Lebbon does a fantastic job of showing how horrific events can shape not only adults, but also children, and the bravery of his characters amidst such self-doubt is heartwrenching." - My Bookish Ways

"The treatment of Ally's disability makes this book unique not only from a standpoint of inclusivity, but because it introduces unique problems to the characters." - Paper Droids

"Lean but meaty and damn near unputdownable" - The Blood Shed

"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
