"Mist was crawling down the mountain towards the town of Quietness, slowly dampening the moss that covered the forest floor. The moon shone brightly above the mountains, highlighting the mass of trees below. The hot August days were satiated by the cooler nights as a consistent wind would blow, making a quiet howl in the forest.
G’Mal sat deep in the darkness that became of the forest south of Quietness. The cool breeze blew through the long, thin strands of hair that covered his body. A large creature, G’Mal’s short, thick mane that stretched from his forehead, down his neck and faded just past his shoulders, stood on end. G’Mal’s course, leather skin reflected the moon that found its path through an opening of the treetops. Low growls resonated as G’Mal exhaled calmly in the silence. With a snout protruding slightly from his almost human face, moisture dripped from his mouth onto his hands below that were armed with three-inch claws.
The silence turned to faint echoes. Stationed in front of a hollow, three hundred year old stump, screams arose through it, reaching G’Mal’s straining ears. Yellow eyes staring ahead, saliva grew thicker as it streamed over his saw blade-like teeth. As a gatekeeper, he waited for the gate to be opened.
With the screams resounding in his head, G’Mal couldn’t help but chant: 'To sleep with the darkness, sleep with the laughter, to sleep with the heaviness of thoughts thereafter'.
Repeating this in front of the stump, G’Mal crouched in anticipation."
On the surface, the town of Quietness is just that – Quiet. But underneath, things are a bit darker. David and Rachel have just moved to town to renovate an abandoned, two hundred year old church in the woods and turn it into a bed and breakfast. Both having retired from their work in the city – David a philosophy professor and Rachel a historian – and with the recent death of their daughter, relocating and starting over is just what they needed.
But the town is not what it seems.
Every twenty years a calling goes out and people begin to disappear. In Quietness, sinister creatures go bump in the night and a vow that was made two hundred years ago, deep in the woods by a small religious group, is coming to an end.
A horror story unfolds in front of David and Rachel as they are drawn into a war between man and beast and ultimately one’s own sanity. But what David doesn't know is that he has been called to Quietness and is the key to opening the gate to a darker world where an army of 'screamers' is waiting to be unleashed.
