“Hardly the familiar post-apocalyptic novel of zombie attacks and desperate efforts to rebuild civilization–[All is Silence is] a personal story of a scared girl and the survivors she finds in the ruins of her world. Lizzie is hard-edged and gritty, vulnerable and kind. Her personality is so compelling that she grabs you by the heart and pulls you along until it’s three in the morning and the story’s over and you just want to read more.” ~ Don Sakers – Analog Science Fiction Read the full Review at AnalogSF.com
“Toils and Snares is a powerfully visceral and moving tale of a family’s intimate struggles to cope with the aftermath of a devastating worldwide plague. Robert L. Slater immediately engages us with the dangers of a post-collapse, lawless Pacific Northwest. Then he ups the ante by stripping bare the internal landscapes of wonderfully realized characters, as we share survivor’s guilt, parent/child resentments, and difficult joys on the path to heroically remaking a world for themselves and their children.” ~ Sara Stamey, award-winning science fiction author of The Ariadne Connection.
“Well, not actual silence. Okay, there are spells of eerie quiet. But All Is Silence is quite lively, considering ninety-five percent of the Earth’s population is dead. Robert L. Slater’s suspenseful, sensitive debut novel takes a grim subject and characters who face disaster, and somehow creates a thought-provoking yet playful futuristic romp. Slater juxtaposes the tragic (a young girl singing at a loved one’s deathbed) with the darkly comic (hey! plenty of unused dishes – throw the dirty ones in the backyard!). He grabs our heartstrings even as he keeps us snorting with laughter at the probability that, yes, this is just what a group of random teens would do if suddenly thrust into this Apocalyptic world.” ~ Virginia Herrick – Chanticleer Book Reviews.

“Slater has created a post-apocalyptic world that is inwardly and outwardly consistent by paying attention to the details. Lizzie, the anti-hero is the tough chick with a heart of gold. She survives the pandemic apocalypse that wipes out 95 percent of the world’s population [and] captures the reader by being so human that you can’t help being sucked into her world.… like Rowling and Suzanne Collins, writes about young people, but engages a wider audience, … furthering understanding of what it is like to be young in this difficult world.” ~ Christopher Key, Entertainment News NorthWest
