"Rebellion of Silence" is set in the city of Kirave in a future world where violent, blood-thirsty creatures called Rahion are invading what's left of the city and killing off the remains of its populations. The Leagian are still in control of Kirave but it is believed that these rulers are purposely letting in the Rahion. Teenage Avarah, whose father is a Leagian Council Judge who has contributed to killing thousands of people, turns to the outlawed group called Silence, young people who seek to end Kirave's violence and bring peace to the city. Avarah is attracted to Sier, one of the leaders of Silence, whose own family were Leagian. Sier and his brother were tortured by Leagian guards and their blood tainted to include Rahion blood. Sier, Danick and his girlfriend Shayli include Avarah in their fight against the Rahion invasion. Will they succeed?
"Rebellion of Silence" is a well-written and well-edited fantasy that features four young and very brave adults, Sier, Ararah, Danick and Shayli, who endure life-threatening situations on their quest to end evil in their town of Kirave. The characters are totally believable as they snack on pizza and dance while resting from their fight. The dialogue is authentic. On page 67 Shayli asks Avarah if she knows any history. Avarah responds, "History. History is forbidden." Then she adds, “I don't know any history but I would also like to learn." Good dialogue, believable characters on an honorable quest with a hint of sequels to come, fantasy writing doesn't get better!
