The third in a dystopian series about people living in silos began with Wool. Shift, the history came next and now this follows on directly from Wool only actually the writing style is much improved. It has good pace, became a page-turner and has a most satisfactory ending to the series. There are a lot of characters to keep track of and some get a bit lost. The story follows Juliette who is now mayor of Silo 18 and Lukas, head of IT. The builders of this world are in Silo 1. Here a fellow called Donny believes there is a chance of life outside their buried world and tries to explore. It is an interesting slant on dystopia for most literature relies on ordered societies breaking down and being built up again with more freedom, whereas this trilogy presents a society that functions reasonably and they’re fighting for their very survival. They face the choice of staying with what they know or leaping into the unknown and taking a chance. All most exciting.

'The final book secures the status of the Wool trilogy as a modern masterpiece' Sunday Express

'We've become obsessed with Hugh Howey's silo story which is basically, and in fact has been called, the NEW Hunger Games. We can't wait to sink our teeth into the final instalment.' Grazia Daily

'It's a dystopian gem. Reviewers have compared his series to The Hunger Games ... but it's better written and more thought-provoking.' Guardian

About the Author

Hugh Howey spent eight years living on boats and working as a yacht captain for the rich and famous. It wasn't until the love of his life carried him away from these vagabond ways that he began to pursue literary adventures, rather than literal ones. Hugh wrote and self-published his first young adult novel, Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue. The Molly Fyde series won rave reviews and praise from readers but it was the release of Wool that made his career take off. Hugh lives in Jupiter, Florida with his wife Amber and their dog Bella.
