Description-

  • "Ezzo's dark tone and emotional connection terrify and comfort listeners in equal measure. Not for the faint of heart."-AudioFile on Dead Silence

    Titanic
    meets The Shining in S.A. Barnes' Dead Silence, a SF horror novel in which a woman and her crew board a decades-lost luxury cruiser and find the wreckage of a nightmare that hasn't yet ended.
    A GHOST SHIP.
    A SALVAGE CREW.
    UNSPEAKABLE HORRORS.
    Claire Kovalik is days away from being unemployed—made obsolete—when her beacon repair crew picks up a strange distress signal. With nothing to lose and no desire to return to Earth, Claire and her team decide to investigate.
    What they find at the other end of the signal is a shock: the Aurora, a famous luxury space-liner that vanished on its maiden tour of the solar system more than twenty years ago. A salvage claim like this could set Claire and her crew up for life. But a quick trip through the Aurora reveals something isn't right.
    Whispers in the dark. Flickers of movement. Words scrawled in blood. Claire must fight to hold onto her sanity and find out what really happened on the Aurora, before she and her crew meet the same ghastly fate.
    A Macmillan Audio production from Tor Nightfire

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Lauren Ezzo delivers a chilling performance in this haunting audiobook about a decades-lost luxury spaceship. Just days before her final assignment comes to an end, Claire and her crew pick up a distress signal. Discovering the AURORA, famous for having vanished halfway through its maiden voyage, could mean a huge reward. But something isn't right, and more awaits the crew than passengers long dead. Ezzo masterfully paces segments of exploration with careful precision, gradually intensifying the horrors as Claire and her crew find it harder and harder to hold on to their sanity. Ezzo's dark tone and emotional connection terrify and comfort listeners in equal measure. Not for the faint of heart. A.K.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award � AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine

    In her horror debut, Barnes (who also writes as Stacey Kade) has a premise that is difficult to beat. Claire Kovalik's small repair/salvage crew discovers the Aurora, a long-lost space cruise liner. There seem to be no survivors--though the socialites and celebrities onboard all died violently. Was it an invasion? An infection? Something more uncanny? The narrative shifts back and forth from exploring the derelict ship to Claire being interviewed about the events, adding an incredible amount of tense foreshadowing. The novel probably didn't need any help gripping readers, but narrator Lauren Ezzo imbues Claire with such emotion that listeners can't help but care even more about the characters and their fates. Listeners feel precisely what Claire does--anxiousness to balance duty with her needs, her crew's needs, and her dislike of some of those in her charge. When Claire doubts her experiences on the Aurora because of her past traumas, listeners hear it in her tone. When she fumes at her interrogators or falls into despair, Ezzo portrays that perfectly as well. And when Ezzo reaches the shocking conclusion, listeners will be glad she was there with them. VERDICT Suggest widely to fans of haunted house stories and space horror.--Matthew Galloway
