Book Description

Inspired by Hugh Howey's world of Wool, Lyn Perry's The Last Prayer features...

...A Different Silo, A Different Threat.

In the post-apocalypse, society continues in underground silos, kept safe from the toxic world above by a simple hatch door and a strict set of rules. For generations, an oligarchy of priests and politicians preserved their standing while the common workers lived in ignorance.

When a young girl starts speaking of heaven as if it were just outside, the rigid caste system begins to crack. Sides are quickly drawn. The only thing preventing a violent upheaval is an old priest's confession and the child's last prayer. But will such simple faith be enough to save them all?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Glimpse Into An Intriguing World 5 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I confess I haven't read Wool so I came to this story knowing nothing about the setting. This story is so good, however, that now I have to read the Hugh Howey originals. The Last Prayer is a compelling and intriguing story, thrumming with claustrophobia and the suppressed emotions of the silo.

It's perfectly possible to read and enjoy this story as a straight piece of drama. There is, also, a spiritual side to it as well. It's a testament to Perry's writing that this is not in any way intrusive or overbearing (I speak as someone for whom religion means nothing). What could be seen as misguided delusion could also be seen as something visionary. It's left up to the reader to decide which.

Overall, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Religion or not 4 July 2013
By Ann
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This interesting little story based around the Wool series investigated how religion might look to a closed society. Probably not unlike the religion of today. The subtle manipulations of an ambitious man leading down a path that does not bode well. Well crafted.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 8 Feb. 2014

I thought this story fell a bit short of proper explanations. Too many unexplained threads a little incredulous I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Silo Story that leaves you wanting more! 30 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Taking Hugh Howey's hit) Wool and creating a story based on the same world (different silo) The Last Prayer scores a home-run! It reads with the same sophistication as the original and leaves you waiting for more. I don't usually buy short stories and this time I am glad I did. BUT Lyndon Perry has to finish this book!! Oh and you might need to read it again right away - it will touch your soul.
