A QUIET APOCALYPSE by Dave Jeffery is a very different kind of post-apocalyptic story. There are no zombies, nothing supernatural of any kind...only people enslaving other people. After an illness renders most people deaf, the hearing are hunted down to become servants for the newly hearing impaired. Those born deaf are given a much more terrifying treatment, as they are blamed for the virus which causes the loss of hearing.
Chris begins a journey to find a place called The Refuge, a safe haven for those with hearing. With an injury meant to keep him from running away, he attempts to escape the hunters known as Samaritans. Unfortunately, Chris realizes too late, the blessing of his immunity has become a curse.
This is only the second book I've read by Jeffery, but I love his storytelling. This is one I can recommend to all readers, not just horror fans.
