'The next Hunger Games' The Sunday Times

'An epic feat of imagination. You will live in this world.' Justin Cronin

In a future less than fifty years away, the world is still as we know it. Time continues to tick by. The truth is that it is ticking away.

A powerful few know what lies ahead. They are preparing for it. They are trying to protect us.

They are setting us on a path from which we can never return.

A path that will lead to destruction; a path that will take us below ground.

The history of the silo is about to be written.

Our future is about to begin.

Genre

Modern & contemporary fiction, Science fiction: apocalyptic & post-apocalyptic

Listen to a sample

The anxiety, the claustrophobia and the lethargy he conjures are heartfelt and convincing.

Observer

We have been mesmerised with Hugh Howey's silo stories since we first laid eyes on book one in the trilogy ... We'd recommend reading Wool first but you'll want to have this one ready as we guarantee you'll be unable to put it down. Perfect sunshine reading, wouldn't you say?

Grazia Daily

Brilliantly written...Howey creates a starkly believable and terrifying apocalypse. More and more layers of the dystopian world are unveiled, enticingly paving the way for the sequel Dust...

Sunday Express

Spoken about in the same breath as The Hunger Games and The Passage.

Independent on Sunday (praise for the Wool Trilogy)

Thrilling, thought-provoking and memorable ... one of dystopian fiction's masterpieces alongside the likes of 1984 and Brave New World.
