Dust (Silo series Book 3)
Wool introduced the world of the silo. Shift told the story of its creation. Dust will describe its downfall.
Juliette, now mayor of Silo 18, doesn’t trust Silo 1, especially its leader, Donald. But in the world of the Silos, there is no black and white — everything is shades of gray. Donald may not be the monster Juliette thinks he is, and may in fact be key to humanity’s continued survival. But can they work together long enough to succeed?
WOOL introduced the silo and its inhabitants.
SHIFT told the story of their making.
DUST will chronicle their undoing.
Welcome to the underground.
As the author has said, every good apocalypse must come to an end. I admit to being a little worried about where he would take us in this concluding chapter of his silo series. I needn’t have wasted my energy. This story is as thrilling and satisfying a conclusion as I could hope for. The author’s devastating imagination and deft writing are both evident from first page to last.
Somehow, this book manages to have it all: If you love Juliette and Solo and the crew from WOOL, you’ll be thrilled to catch up with them. If you love the dark underpinnings of the human imagination on display in the silos, you’ll find it in spades. If you like the roller coaster thrill-ride Hugh’s writing takes you on, then strap yourself in for a wild ride! If you seek redemption and hope, you’ll find them here, as well.
Hugh has become a masterful storyteller and wordsmith, and in Dust, he proves to be at the top of his game. The silo saga is clearly destined to become a classic of speculative fiction; this final entry all but guarantees it.
Note: DO NOT START WITH THIS BOOK! You need to read WOOL, then SHIFT, and conclude with DUST.
