Summary

In the darkness of an 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?

Great apocalyptic story

Really really enjoyed this, I'm a big fan of true escapist horror stories/post apocalyptic stories, and I spend a lot of time searching for good ones on audible, and this very much hit what I was looking for. As someone has already noted, it has similarities to "the rats" by James Herbert, but updated to a modern setting, and I thought the protagonist of the teenage girl being deaf worked really well. If you liked Stephen Kings "the mist" or any of James Herbert's work you should really like this

Gripping

Apocalypse and horror books aren't really my bag and I bought this book on a whim but was surprised to find I loved it, it is one of most engaging and gripping books I have listened to in a long while. I am now desperately waiting for a sequel. Only 4 stars for the performance because it really needed a male and female narrator, the books starts from the perspective of a 14 year old girl, but I thought it was a boy for quite some time just because of the male narrator. Other than that, Meadows made an excellent job of the narration and combined with an excellent story with plenty of nail-biting moments, I have no qualms about recommending this book, even if you think you don't like horror.
