WHAT IS THE SILENCE OF SIX, AND WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
These are the last words uttered by 17-year-old Max Stein s best friend Evan just moments before he kills himself after hacking into the live-streaming Presidential debate at their high school. Haunted by the unforgettable image of Evan s death, Max's entire world is upended as he suddenly finds himself the target of a corporate-government witch-hunt. Fearing for his life and fighting for his own innocence, Max goes on the run with no one to trust and too many unanswered questions. Max must dust off his own hacking skills and maneuver through the dangerous labyrinth of underground hacktivist networks, ever-shifting alliances and virtual identities all the while hoping to find the truth behind the Silence of Six before it s too late."
To be completely honest, I had no idea what to expect with The Silence of the Six. Books like this are usually out of my comfort zone, but when this book was toted for fans of Mr. Robot, that sealed the deal for me!
If there was any book that could turn a reader into trying something new, it would be The Silence of the Six. This book blew away any doubt I had far out of the water! I devoured this book almost in one sitting. You simply cannot(even if you wanted to) put it down! The author, E.C. Meyers, pulls you in immediately with his incredible world building and character crafting. You'll plunge into the cyber world and it will make you think, more than once, about your online presence. The Science of Six is falling into the Science Fiction category, but it will please readers of any genre. If you like a heart-pounding and mind-bending story than this novel is for you!
Yes, this novel surrounds the world of computer hacking, but it also takes you on a heartening ride between the characters' relationships. It's a face-paced thriller that packs a lot of punch, but it also comes with a lot of heart and soul.
The Silence of Six is a sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat adventure that will keep you entertained from the moment you first open the book until the very last time your close it. The Silence of Six turned out to me one of my favourite reads of 2016. Talk about going out with a bang!
