Synopsis

In a universe where corruption and deception rule all aspects of life, sparks of rebellion threaten to ignite . . .

BORN OF SILENCE

As the Resistance leader, Zarya Starska's only goal is to topple the government that destroyed her entire family and left her penniless. Her biggest asset is a mysterious man known only as Kere.

But Kere has a dark secret. Born into a world that is as privileged as it is corrupt, his real name is Darling Cruel-and he is heir to the government Zarya wants to overthrow. No one has ever seen the real man behind the legend. No one except Zarya. But when she allows a weapon he designed to be used against his beloved sister, all bets are off.

Betrayed by the Resistance, Darling's goal is not only to reign, but to kill every Resistance member he can find. Zarya must stop Darling's reign of terror, but can she reach past his insanity to restore the hero who once fought by her side?

The main reason this didn’t work in any way for me is that the heavy narrative and backstory got so bad that I’d just skim over any new revelation of Darling’s past horrors.

There were times when I found that I was laughing, shouting I was so mad, and sobbing as the emotions ran through me! Prepare to be enraged. Prepare to be moved.

It all combines with nonstop action in Born of Silence, making this a book that is as emotional as it is adventurous.
