Killing Sound

Publisher: Chicken House

Review

Inspired by a Victorian prediction that the excavation of the London Underground system would cause the end of the world, Southern has devised a chilling YA novel in which ancient, evil, supernatural forces are unwittingly unleashed.

Jodie believes her parents were killed in a road accident when she was five, yet when she discovers her father's working papers they trigger terrible recollections at the back of her mind which tell a totally different and horrific story. She discovers that, like her father, she has a frightening and deadly gift which can conjure up devils through infrasound, and which threaten friends and enemies alike. 

Southern's novel succeeds because it is rooted in real life, real places, plausible science, and engaging characterisation.
