Publisher's Summary

They came from the sea. They came from the shadows. They came from the sewers. But what are they, and what do they want? No one knows. Their thirst for blood is insatiable. They scramble from city to city, spreading destruction and death in their wake. Some call them "Mutes". Some call them "Mimes". Their names are synonymous with terror.
Fortunately, there are a few brave enough to stand against the monsters and risk their lives for the greater good; for the survival of the human race. Will they withstand the brutal assault? Or, will they fall in the attempt?
Only time will tell.

Critic Reviews

"Hale knows how to keep the apocalypse fresh while hitting those classic decaying notes. A worthy addition to the genre." (David Dunwoody, author of Empire and The Harvest Cycle)
"Mute is a classic horror B-movie in book form, and I mean that as a major compliment. Hot chicks, sex, psychotic mental patients, and cannibal mutants - and that's just the first few chapters! This book is rollicking good fun!" (JG Faherty, author of The Burning Time, Carnival of Fear, Cemetery Club, and the Bram Stoker Award-nominated Ghosts of Coronado Bay)
"Jeffery Hale brings us a frightening and very human look at a savage world in ruins, but this isn't your average post apocalypse novel. Forget zombies; beware the Mutes!" (Robert Essig, author of Through the In Between, Hell Awaits)

What did you like best about Mute? What did you like least?

The concept was very interesting....but I found it boring at times and a little repetitive....The narration was good though!

Would you be willing to try another book from Jeffrey Hale? Why or why not?

I might, he has good ideas!

Which character – as performed by Roberto Scarlato – was your favorite?


Do you think Mute needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

ummm....I don't know if I would listen to it...

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

I love Roberto's voice and narration, and would probably listen to the phonebook if he read it to This was an interesting twist on one of my fave genre's, but I was not super impressed, even if my heart kind of had a soft spot for Leo...This was drawn out more than it should have been, sometimes, less is more..some writers need to learn to edit themselves a bit more, I say this when I find myself not paying attention to a story, or saying things in my head like...we get it...move it along....not a bad story...but not awesome either....YMMV!

Any additional comments?

The theory behind the Mutes themselves was sound, for the most part it felt very "been there, read that." I have read/ listen to the same theme before.
