WOOL introduced the silo and its inhabitants.

SHIFT told the story of their making.

DUST will chronicle their undoing.

Welcome to the underground.

DUST, the final book in the Silo saga brings an end to both the WOOL and SHIFT series. Want to know what happens with Juliette being mayor? What about Troy and Charlotte in silo 1? Will Troy’s charade as Thurman go unnoticed? What is up with Troy’s cough? Will Juliette be reunited with Solo and the kids in silo 17? Will silo 1 continue to put up with rebellion from silo 18? And what will silo 18 do with it’s new found knowledge about the outside and other silos? What about the fate of all the other silos? What is that brief blue sky vision from the drone? Do the nanos continue to destroy the entire world? And just what is the end game that silo 1 has planned out? And finally, will these poor people ever make it out of the silo prisons? All of this is answered and more in the novel.

If you’ve read the other books in this series, you have to get this one. There really isn’t any reason not to. This book answers a ton of questions and wraps up the story nicely. It is full of action, with only a few slow sections that were more philosophical. The plot really is a roller coaster ride with ups and downs, and both smart and stupid decisions from characters we love. We see absolutely terrible decisions, but we also see sacrifice and heroism.

And whereas the first Wool was all about cleaning those cameras…in this novel, nobody cares about those stupid cameras as there is way too much more important stuff going on. So read it, and find out what that stuff is!
