Collects Silent War #1-6. Son of M told how Quicksilver stole the precious Terrigen Mists from the Inhumans and how Black Bolt retaliated by declaring war on humanity. Now war is about to break loose as Gorgon leads a terrorist attack on New York. Old friends become deadly enemies when the Fantastic Four are forced to defend their city against the Inhumans.

I love the Inhumans and Quicksilver, and I thought that the story was great. It definitely helps to have at least read House of M and Son of M, though, so you can follow along.Black Bolt is one of my favorite comic book characters, which is kind of weird since the guy rarely talks (and when he does, it ends in annihilation). Since he's mute by necessity, it's hard for writers to portray him with any real depth of character. I think David Hine did a wonderful job with Black Bolt, though. I also really liked how there was a different narrator for each issue.The only reason I'm giving this four stars instead of five is the art, which was mostly horrible. I liked how Frazer drew Black Bolt and Medusa's hair, but other than that, ick. Crystal looks nothing like herself at all, Luna looks possessed, and Quicksilver looks like a particularly evil Grinch wannabe (his hair even does the Grinch curl thing!). The cover artist (John Watson) was really good, however.
