From Richelle Mead, the #1 internationally bestselling author of Vampire Academy and Bloodlines, comes a breathtaking new fantasy steeped in Chinese folklore.

For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...


Look at this cover! Ohh my gosh, I LOVE it so much! And the synopsis sounds fabulous, too. Everything about it sounds so good. I love mythology and folklore, and I love that Chinese folklore is the focus here. We see Greek and Roman mythology so often, it’s awesome to see a change. Plus, it’s a standalone! How rare have these been lately?! It feels like every book turns into a trilogy at the very least. I really, really hope Soundless turns out to be amazing!


What do you think of Soundless? Any new releases you can't wait to read??
