Tell Me About It
Jodie is cursed with a terrible gift. She just doesn't know it yet. When she stumbles across one of her dead father's old papers on sound waves in the attic, it sets her on a terrifying journey to find out more, leading her across the streets of London to the dark, untrodden tunnels of the Underground, where she is forced to face the truth. Her worst nightmare is about to become real. Worse, she can hear it coming.
My Thoughts
When I first heard about Killing Sound I knew I had to read it. The synopsis really caught my attention, it sounded like the perfect mix of mystery, paranormal, and just plain crazy. The first we get to see of what is going in is very vague, but also gruesome, and I had to keep reading.

Jodie lives with Aunt Gene after her parents died in mysterious circumstances when she was younger. Now older, strange things are happening to Jodie, and she thinks it's related to her dad's old papers she found in the attic. She ends up enlisting the help of her best friend Luca to find out more about her fathers experiments and try to find out what is going on, what is she seeing and hearing. When it is actually described what she sees and a name given to it, I had to look it up, I had to know exactly what was haunting/stalking/creeping her out

This is what she sees, would you not completely and utterly freak out if you saw this demon in your dreams?

Killing Sound plays with your mind, let's you think one thing then something else is thrown in, you are left not knowing what's really happening, just glimpses and possibilities, and even leading up to the end you are still trying to decide what is really real.

Killing Sound is creepy in a suspenseful way. You are always on edge, never knowing what will happen, even the ending fits exactly into the story itself and I definitely would be interested if another book is released. Killing Sound would definitely make you think twice about getting on the underground, or even getting on a train that involves going through tunnels, or even walking through subways alone in the dark.
