The story begins with Gorgon leading a covert attack on a New York theatre and after a brief fight with The Fantastic Four, The following attempts by Black Bolt to free his people, However Maximus uses the situation for his own needs..
The story is well written and the art is ok ( not Secret Invasion Inhumans quality) but is enjoyable.
You can enjoy Silent War as a stand alone novel but it fits in better as a link to Secret Invasion: Inhumans and The War of Kings storylines.
Overall i would recommend buying this but only if your a fan of the Inhumas or want the complete back story to War of Kings.

The story takes place during Marvels registration act storyline and just before the Secret Invasion by the skrulls. The Inhumans are trying to retrieve the Terrigan Mists, a source of power and ritual for the Inhumans. It was stolen by Quicksilver and then in turn was stolen from him by the US Government. It is now being used to help create an army of biologically enhanced Marines. The Inhumans, lead by Black Bolt are intent on taking back what's rightfully theirs. This brings them into conflict with both the Fantastic Four and the Avengers.
The story has an interesting premise, but is poorly executed. The art by Frazer Irving is actually quite nice. But writer David Hine gives us a rather plodding, sometimes confusing mess. A battle between The Inhumans and the Fantastic Four should be pretty exciting, but it's not. A battle between the Inhumans and the Avengers should also be exciting, but it's not. The confrontations are slow, boring, directionless and anti climactic. Hines seems to be going for something moody and thoughtful yet we aren't given any new or interesting insight into any of the Inhumans, at least nothing more than we already knew.
There's a good story trying to get out, but in the end it's suffocated by slow pacing and a series of frustrating and anti climactic confrontations.
