Book Description

"One of the sharpest minds and clearest voices writing today."

Hugh Howey, author of WOOL


Following "The Sky Used to be Blue," "Cleaning Up," and "Deep Justice," this 15,000 word novella set in the world of WOOL is the fourth in the bestselling Kindle sci-fi Karma series.

After a hellish three months locked in the private inner sanctum of IT, Karma and her family emerge, bloodied and forever changed. Rick is a man who is no longer in control. Mars has become the power in the Silo.

And Karma just might be charged with murder.

Death came with the uprising. Fighting with guns, knives, and bombs, many killed or were killed. Now those who survived must pick up the pieces and go forward. Twenty-five years into Silo life, the realities are still the same: the stairs, the water, the Outside… and the suffocating Inside.

Karma of the Silo: The Collection, which includes all of the episodes in the Karma series, is available now, to be followed by a print edition.

Praise for Patrice Fitzgerald and the Karma series

A definite PLUS to the Wooliverse, and a must read if you want to be well-versed in all things WOOL!

Michael Bunker, author of Dunes over Danvar, Pennsylvania, The Silo Archipelago, and WICK

The author does a fantastic job of retaining the atmosphere and claustrophobia of life underground and the characters are carefully constructed, exploring not only the effects of Silo life on the family dynamic, but the often complex relationships between the different Silo classes through the eyes of Karma and her family as she realises who she really is and has to decide whether to remain subdued and forget her past life, or choose a different path than the one chosen for her and challenge the status quo.

Eamon Ambrose, "Eamo the Geek"

Fitzgerald has created another masterpiece here. She has such an immediate style of writing which grips you from the start and takes you on a wild journey through the desperate lives of those living in the Silo.

W.J. Davies, author of The Runner and The Diver

I think I’m in love with Karma. I was curious about her life when Hugh Howey mentioned her in SHIFT. I highly recommend, not just this book, but this whole series!

Hanna Elizabeth, author of Visions of Wool

Fitzgerald’s characters come alive and threaten to leap off the page, they are so engaging.

Jerilyn Dufresne, author of Who Killed My Boss? Any Meat in that Soup? and the Sam Darling Mysteries

The Sky Used to be Blue manages the difficult feat of placing itself within the existing narrative, just like a missing piece of the great puzzle, and not just a parallel story or spinoff. It is well-written, gripping and filled with suspense. All the ingredients necessary are here: good writing, action and unexpected twists, characters you care about, and a deeper meaning.

Max Zaoui, critic extraordinaire

Patrice is a sci-fi, political thriller, and mystery writer who had a past as an intellectual property attorney. She also runs a niche indie publishing company and is a professional mezzo-soprano in her spare time. She's the Mom of four (pretty) adult children. She lives on the water in New England with her husband and is thrilled to be a successful indie writer.

More About the Author

Patrice Fitzgerald is in her third, fourth, or fifteenth act at this point. Writing and singing have always been part of her life, but she made a fifteen-year detour into practicing law. She got over it.

Her writing includes a dystopian series based on Hugh Howey's world of WOOL, tightly plotted and fast-paced novels like her political thriller "RUNNING," plus quirky short stories about sex, God, and death--not necessarily in that order--such as "Till Death Do Us Part" and "Looking for Lance." Her stories have appeared in a number of anthologies.

Patrice is currently at work writing the third book in the Karma series of stories set in the Silo. The first, "The Sky Used to be Blue," is on target to sell 2,000 copies in the first month, with the second, "Cleaning Up," due out before May 1. She is a professional mezzo-soprano who sings in styles ranging from opera and Broadway to jazz. Patrice is the mother of four fairly adult children, two by birth and two by marriage. She lives in Connecticut on the water with her wonderful singing, programming, writing and trumpet-playing husband. She is thrilled that RUNNING, her first published novel, has become a Kindle bestseller and has been read and enjoyed by people from all over the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars karma #4 1 July 2013
By Suzy C
Format:Kindle Edition
if you enjoyed Hugh Howeys masterpiece Wool, you will love this piece of fanfiction by Patrice Fitzgerald. The Karma series answers all the questions regarding Helen and Mick in the original Wool books after they enter the Silo. I found it to be an enjoyable companion book that extends the world of Wool. Read the series back to back if you can it works really well.

I had read the wool series and was really chuffed to come across this series, fab idea, well written and love the fact that it felt like you were filling gaps you didnt even realise were there. (I say this because I thoroughly enjoyed the Wool series and didnt feel like I had been left hanging). ♡♥♡ Well written and felt authentic thank you ♡♥♡ I would definately recommend this.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm well hooked! And the housework suffers badly. 16 Aug. 2014

It's so nice to have gaps filled in and gain a deeper understanding of the way we act and interact under pressure. It brings the characters to life more fully and there's this constant need to want MORE INPUT!
