Book Description

A young man named Lewis, an underdog in his circle, tests his forgotten courage by going on a search for his missing older brother in a mysterious forest. His adventure is graced by the presence of his two closest friends; a tough chick with a smirk for danger and a timid jock whose bones chatter at anything beyond the gridiron. As the daylight slowly turns to night, and the creatures of the wilderness suddenly tuck themselves away, a haunting presence arrives and consumes all hope of survival. The group’s wits and fears are put through rigorous tests that not even their nightmares could bear to produce.

From the Author

I understand that third person present tense is not the most popular style of reading or even writing for that matter but after writing the screenplay, I felt that the "in the moment" style was immensely important in building the suspense. This book is currently building a beautiful little audience that film producers are becoming proud of. Soon we will be thrusting this onto the silver screen. Thank you for reading! And if you can find me on twitter, please make a connection, I love talking about film/books and I wouldn't at all mind reading yours.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book September 2, 2014

I liked the characters, I liked the plot and I liked the author's writing style. While reading this book I was able to see in my imagination a mental movie about Lewis and his friends and this movie was really interesting. This story captivated my attention from the first pages and I was always curious about what will happen next. I was really scared numerous time while following Lewis and his friends in the mysterious forest. I liked this story and can certainly recommend it.

The book has a very creative cast of characters and an interesting storyline. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be made into a movie September 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Blind Silence: The Awakening is a compelling piece of horror-fiction that could easily be adapted into a successful film. Lewis' brother Nick, whose popularity count at their school is much higher than his own, has gone missing in the woods. Tormented by the event, Lewis gathers his own crew of adventurers, including jock Danny who's basically the human Cowardly Lion and the outdoorsy Jamie who's pleasingly different from the other girls. Together, the three venture into the woods to recover Nick, but what they find is more than they'd ever bargained for.

I truly enjoyed this well written piece of fiction; Taylor has spun a world that's frightening and mysterious and a bit supernatural, but he's written it in a way that's easy to read, straightforward, exciting and entertaining. I quite enjoyed the dialogue and banter between the characters (but who wouldn't love Jamie?). You totally won't be ready for the end. Looking forward to reading more from this writer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adventure September 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Adventure, horror and fiction - all mixed together in a catchy adventurous tale. "Blind Silence" shares the adventures of three teenagers on a mission - a mission to save Lewis's brother. Lewis, the main actor in all the adventures takes two of his friends in his life saving adventure - and they get enough of adventure all throughout the book. This fictional work is captivating and fast paced, the kind that will not bring me to sleep if read at night. I have enjoyed the plot, the adventure and the characters, everything making out of this book an enjoyable reading. I am rating it a 4 star because, although I really enjoyed it, but I also believe it is addressed to a younger audience as there were times while I was reading it when I could not relate with the scenes and adventures described.

More About the Author

I'm a caffeinated writer and an ambitious filmmaker. Found my passion when I was too young to realize that your passion is the healthiest thing you can latch onto. Once I figured that out, I became the happiest poor person. So I shall continue to read, write, and make movies until that awkward "goodbye" moment.
